Matcha Morning Smoothie
We’ve talked at length about how much you and your body will benefit if you were to bring matcha into your daily routine. But, we also know that it’s hard to kick a coffee habit, especially one that’s been around for a long time. So, what we like to do is ease ourselves into a matcha morning, and this matcha morning smoothie is the perfect way to do that. You can pair it with a small cup of coffee to help you make the transition, but there really is no need for extra caffeine. Because although matcha does add a uniquely sweet and earthy taste to this smoothie, it’s really there to make sure that you’re fueled up for the day with plenty of energy and no jitters.
Frozen bananas make this sweet yet healthy treat extra creamy, but you can also use unfrozen ones for a thinner texture. And, the addition of mango is just the thing to transport you from your kitchen to a tropical paradise. We could go on and on about this smoothie but instead, we’ll just say that when you start your day with a matcha morning smoothie, you’re opening yourself up to the possibility of having your best day yet.
