Green Tea Smoothie

    Share

    This smoothie is really a cross between iced green tea and a green tea milkshake. If it isn’t sweet enough for your tastebuds, add another 1 to 2 Tbsp (15 to 30 mL) agave nectar. Matcha green tea powder is the entire green tea leaf that has been ground to a very fine consistency, resulting in higher concentrations of antioxidants. It is used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony and added to ice cream and sweets.
