Matcha Green Tea Power Smoothie

…taking a tentative sip, I discovered that this drink had a delightful light flavour and was very refreshing!

I’ve recently moved into the city and closer to my work, which leaves me with much more free time in the mornings. To be honest, I usually use this time really productively by laying in the one spot on the couch for an hour slowly sipping my coffee and scrolling through Facebook and Instagram… πŸ˜‰

Today I decided to make myself a healthy little green smoothie for breakfast and actually do something with my spare time. I’ve been getting back into the habit of making myself a Matcha tea in the mornings sometimes instead of a coffee for a bit of an antioxidant boost. But this morning I decided to incorporate my Matcha hit into my smoothie instead!

  • three large handfuls baby spinach & rocket mix
  • 1/2 cup chopped pineapple
  • 1 maple waterΒ or 1 cup purified water (this is Low FODMAP friendly – if you’re not following FODMAPs you could use coconut water)
  • Β 1 tsp maca powder
  • 1/4 tsp matcha tea (I recommend Panatea or Kenkotea ceremonial grade)
  • 1 inch frozen banana, chopped
  • 1 small sprig fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 small sprigs of fresh mint, chopped

I gave this a good blitz in the Nutribullet until it looked green and creamy.

Ta-da!

Then, taking a tentative sip, I discovered that this drinkΒ had a delightful light flavour and was very refreshing!

Give it a try and let me know what you think! I’d love to hear your variations on this recipe πŸ™‚
