smooth, sweet, and delicious, this smoothie creates the perfect energy infused cup for any morning
Matcha is traditionally used in the Chinese and Japanese cultures in ceremonies that focus on its preparation, serving, and drinking, meditatively. Matcha is made by crushing the finest green tea leaves into refined green tea powder. The process in which the powder is made makes this a hugely powerful source of antioxidants. Rather than seeping the tea leaves then discarding the leaves, this powder utilizes the entire tea leaf. The leaves are dried and finely ground. This process creates a deep emerald powder that allows the full absorption of nutrients of the leaf. Matcha powder has numerous nutritional benefits including important powerful antioxidants with cancer fighting properties, polyphenols (which include anti-inflammatory properties), and vitamins, like vitamins A, B, C, E, and K. The matcha, in addition with the banana, creates a densely nutritious smoothie, packing an energetic sip great for any morning. Feel free to add other ingredients like greek yogurt, coconut flakes, chia seeds etc for even more nutritional benefits.
