Just about every day I make a matcha smoothie to enjoy on my hour long commute from my house to taking my kiddos to school to work. I’ve tried different variations of smoothie recipes. Some turn out pretty amazing and others not so much. I’ve found that having the right matcha really makes all the difference in the world.
The other day I finally stumbled upon the perfect recipe for me:
1 teaspoon of Matcha Muscle
3 tablespoons of yogurt
2 tablespoons of psyllium husk (for additional fiber)
2 tablespoons of CACafe Coconut Green Tea Powder
1/2 can of canned pears
Dash of Cream
Sprinkled in Cinnamon and Ginger
Blend all ingredients with Ice and pour into your favorite traveling mug.
I am in no way a master at making matcha smoothies but this mix is heavenly! The smoothie is sweet with a hint of spice from the cinnamon and ginger. The Matcha Muscle adds the perfect base, adding in a rich smoothness and a hint of vegetal notes. I love how smooth the matcha is without any sort of bite and the fact there is added pea protein in the mix just makes me even more thrilled with this matcha.
Later in the day, I did try the Matcha Muscle by itself and I was just as impressed. Smooth, creamy, silky, without any sort of after bite. Just delicious.
Over the last few days, I’ve found that I just can’t get enough of this matcha and love how there isn’t that noticeable bitter aftertaste that can sometimes accompany this beverage. Works perfectly in smoothies and by itself. Next on the list is baking with it. I have a feeling I’ll be making some Matcha Shortbread Cookies very son.
Here’s the scoop!
