Green Tea Smoothie

I thought I would share my favorite green tea smoothie using matcha! Matcha literally means powdered tea. When you have are having traditional green tea, the leaves are infused in hot water and then discarded. With matcha, you are drinking the actual tea leaves in powder form. Because the whole leaves are ingested, it is a more potent source of nutrients than steeped green tea. It's a super food that is loaded with nutrients, potent amino acids and has 137 times the antioxidants of brewed green tea. It isn't the only super food in this shake! I also added spinach and I swear you can not taste it at all. Spinach is also packed with protein, iron, vitamins, and minerals all in a low calorie food! Plus the addition of Greek yogurt thickens the shake and adds additional protein! Enjoy!
