Matcha Veggie Energy Smoothie … that name’s a mouthful … and so is this smoothie!
Looking for a yummy, nutrient dense smoothie that won’t leave you feeling hungry in five minutes? Maybe even give you a kick of energy to get you through the day? Who needs coffee? Not you with this kick of Matcha!
I’m not usually a big smoothie fan, because I’m usually cold, but as the temps warm up I’ll often turn to one for a quick lunch or snack. I also avoid smoothies because the tasty ones are usually packed full of nothing but sugary fruit, and I really don’t care for the veggie-heavy smoothies – too green for me (I never seem to want a veggie smoothie when I actually have the fresh ingredients on hand), and raw veg is not always a friend to my delicate digestion!
Ironically I just created this VERY GREEN, yet delicious smoothie – no fresh veg required – so convenient!
The addition of healthy fat – avocado, digest supporting papaya and the Vital Proteins Collagen Veggie Blend (inspired by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne) helps with satiety. Just half a banana adds the bit of sweetness that you need and the final magic ingredient is Sun Goddess Matcha Pique Tea Crystals for a kick of energy …. this one Matcha Veggie Energy Smoothie will take you further than you standard fruity concoction!
