This quick to prepare morning smoothie gives a real energy boost from its various ingredients, especially the matcha.
Matcha is made from crushed whole green tea leaves and is known for amazing health benefits. High in antioxidants, it also helps you to relax, is good for the immune system and can even help you to burn more calories. It contains more caffeine than regular tea so for this reason I use it in my smoothies when I feel like I need to kick start my day.
