Sometimes I think what everyone needs in life is just a really great smoothie. Like if we were to go back in time and hand all the megalomaniacal world leaders a smoothie, we could re-write some serious history. Everyone just chill. Drink your smoothie. Whether you’re in a frumpy mood, have a case of the Mondays, feel like your life is in shambles all because of a little low blood sugar, a smoothie can perk you up, brighten your day, or prevent some seriously damaging words said out of hunger.

I buy my matcha green tea powder over the internet, and because a little bit goes a long way, a 1-pound bag lasts me about a year. During the winter, I make matcha lattes with almond milk and honey, and enjoy adding it to my smoothies in the summer for an antioxidant and energy boost. I love the way it tastes, and I especially enjoy Green Tea Coconut Milk Ice Cream.

But first…What is matcha? It’s straight-up stoneground green tea leaves. Using this green tea powder for your smoothies, lattes, baked or raw treats, results in a higher concentration of health benefits than you’d get from steeping green tea. Increased focus and memory, enhanced mood, lowered cholesterol and blood pressure, healthy cell function, and a higher immune system are just some of the many benefits of the magical powder.

  1. Would you mind sharing which matcha powder you use, or what the vendor is? I’m looking to buy online too, but am not sure what to look for as far as quality or what a ‘better’ brand would be. Thanks!
