Kick start your morning with this matcha smoothie

Candice Kumai, matcha

Wakie-wakie with this super-delicious matcha green tea smoothie, and head out for a meditation or yoga session. I highly recommend cleansing all areas of your life: mental, physical, and spiritual. Matcha green tea will get you there.

This trendy green tea is now the beverage of choice for cool foodies. And for good reason – matcha is particularly high in antioxidants called catechin polyphenols—linked to numerous health benefits—and drinkers say it works as a coffee substitute, providing energy, without the dreaded coffee buzz.
