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.

Amazingly, I have yet to buy matcha powder but after seeing this smoothie and other ReDux recipes, clearly I need to buy some ASAP!

I used matcha too and I'm glad i did. I've been trying to find recipes that work well with matcha and what can be an overwhelming taste and my recipe ending up being just that.

You used my all time fav protein powder. Vega love!

Sounds lovely, got to try it. Will probably add a little bit of kale for some extra nutrition!
