Matcha green tea smoothie... Post workout ideal

Matcha green tea is such an amazing superfood.

I use Dr Mercola Matcha Green Tea but any other matcha tea will do fine. Dr Mercola Royal Matcha Green Tea is steamed not roasted. As a result, it retains all the nutrient-rich value possible from the tea leaf and does not have a bitter taste. Green Tea is beneficial to digestive, skin, heart and dental health.

Dr Mercola Royal Matcha Green Tea is:
A completely natural green tea using the entire nutrient-rich leaf
Up to 17 times the antioxidants of wild blueberries and 7 times higher than dark chocolate
Up to 9 times the beta carotene found in spinach
Nutrient-rich bright green chlorophyll to provide you with vibrant energy from the sun.

Ingredients
1 large frozen banana
1 handful of frozen courgettes
1 handful of spinach
1 scoop of protein (vegan or otherwise) unflavored
1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Matcha Green Tea
1 cup almond milk (or coconut milk)

Topping: puffed white/brown rice and cacao nibs

Directions
Put all of the ingredients in your blender and mix until smooth. At this point you can add more water if toot thick. Top with a handful of the topping.
