If you guys haven’t figured this out yet, I’m obsessed with green smoothies. They are a daily staple for me, sometimes more than once a day. I’m always looking for ways to switch it up to avoid boredom (because you likely also now that I get bored super easily), so when I ran across this recipe from People’s Food Co-op, I got really excited.
This smoothie features matcha, a powdered form of green tea that I’m completely addicted to. If you’ve ever had a green tea Frappucino from Starbucks, it’s very similar. Definitely an acquired taste for some (I know a few who hate it), but it’s my absolute favorite way to drink tea. I switched up the original recipe a little bit by adding spinach and stevia for a dose of greens and a little sweeter taste. You can also use agave or honey depending on your preference.
