Recipe Redux: Matcha Protein Smoothie

I'm a matcha smoothie-aholic. The rich smooth concentrated taste of green tea, the caffeine boost and the bright green color. It's not a cheap smoothie addition, but it does provide an extra hit of antioxidants and vitamins to my morning smoothie. Yes, it's not a traditional way to eat matcha (usually in a beautiful tea ceremony, but it also sneaks into green tea ice cream and soba noodles because it's so versatile) but I love it.

This smoothie is one of my favorite ways to rebuild muscle post-Harvard Stadiums with November Project. Note: when you're buying matcha--make extra sure it's the finely ground loose powder--not tea bags full of unground matcha tea leaves.
