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.

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

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.
