What ingredients are contained in the Matcha Green Smoothie?

This Matcha Green Smoothie is jam-packed with super-foods. Let’s see which are the main ones.

First is matcha powder, a Japanese green tea powder made from finely powdered dried tea leaves. Matcha does have a full range of unique health benefits, which are mainly due to the high proportion of antioxidants contained in it. Indeed, antioxidants can help stabilize harmful free radicals, which are compounds that can damage cells and cause chronic disease.

On the other hand, be aware that matcha tea is also richer in caffeine than regular green teas. Therefore, try to avoid consuming it close to bedtime, as it may interfere with your regular sleep schedule. In addition, more is not always better: the maximum tolerable intake of matcha powder is unclear and depends on the individual. In order to be safe, make sure to consume matcha in moderation.

Second, kale leaves. Adding kale to your smoothies does not impact the taste, but provides you with a whole range of nutrients and vitamins, helping you reach your suggested daily dose of greens.

Avocado is another key ingredient contained in this Matcha Green Smoothie. The good fats contained in this fruit are not only useful for the overall functioning of our body but they also give creaminess and thickness to the smoothie.

Last, the Vanilla Protein Powder helps to boost the protein content of the smoothie, which in turn is key for keeping us fuller for longer and for building and repairing our muscle mass. Opt for dairy-free protein powder if you want a fully plant-based smoothie.

Great for weight loss, and general nutrition, you will love this Matcha Protein Smoothie!
