Matcha powder is the leaves of finely milled green tea. And did you know that it’s jam packed with benefits? Matcha has been said to provide anti-aging benefits, helps boost the immune system, cleanse the body, provides a sustained energy boost, and so much more (learn more about matcha HERE). Some call matcha THE superfood of super foods because of it’s high antioxidant level. It’s even considered a thermogenic, which means it helps you burn fat and lose weight!
It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of matcha and drink a matcha beverage almost every single afternoon. This ice cold, dairy-free Matcha Mint Chip Smoothie recipe is one of my favorite matcha creations and I think you’re going to love it, too.
