“Have I told you lately how matcha I love you?” This corny joke is how I got my husband to try this smoothie (see my recipe below). He had tried matcha at our local health food café, and wasn’t a fan.
“This matcha tastes like peaches,” I promised as I handed over a green-filled glass. He was skeptical until he tasted it. Consider him a matcha convert, but only for this smoothie (so far).
I’ve been a fan of matcha for a long time, so I was thrilled when Vital Proteins came up with a blend. Matcha is made from powdered green tea leaves and is full of antioxidants. Matcha does have caffeine, but it also has a compound called L-theanine, which has been shown to improve mood.
