Last week I shared a recipe for delicious chewy chai spiced porridge made using Rebel Kitchen Chai Milk. For today’s recipe I decided to use the matcha milk. Matcha is a finely ground pure green tea. It is extremely high in antioxidants and has been said to have metabolism boosting properties. It also has a very distinctive flavour which I love. I started adding matcha powder to smoothies right back when I first started blogging so its great to see that it’s an ingredient that is now being used in more products.
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ll know I have a thing for green smoothies. They were one of the recipes / meals that I tried when I was cleaning up my diet that made me realise how delicious healthy food really can be.
Generally my green smoothies include some kind of fruit, but here I decided to make a fruit free version for anyone looking for a lower sugar option. I found that the matcha milk gives the smoothie enough sweetness on it’s own. If you’d prefer something sweeter, just add a banana.
This smoothie would make a fabulous breakfast to start your day, or a more filling snack.
- 1 handful of spinach
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 carton of Rebel Kitchen Matcha Milk
- 3 ice cubes
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
Feel free to add other ingredients to this such as a scoop of plain or vanilla protein powder, fruit for added sweetness or other greens powder such as spirulina for an added boost.
Have you tried matcha green tea before?
