Last week I shared my easy peasy zucchini soup recipe and as promised, here’s the easy matcha smoothie concoction I promised last week.
Why matcha? Well, my household has this sudden love for anything and everything matcha flavoured since last year. For those wondering what matcha powder is, it’s green tea. If you think it sounds weird to consume food or drinks flavoured with green tea, think again. I’ve eaten and even made matcha/green tea sponge cake, creme brulee, jelly… and the list goes on! Plus we all know that green tea is full of antioxidants. It also helps to detoxify your body, is rich in fibre, chlorophyll and vitamins. Other benefits include calming the mind, therefore helping you concentrate and relax effectively.
I’ve used the smoothie bottle to create this smoothie on the *George Foreman Mix & Go Pro. I mentioned last week that the mixer has a few new functions compared to the original Mix & Go. Not only does it come with a glass jug for larger quantities, but the Mix & Go Pro has five functions; the three speeds 1 through to 3, pulse and a smoothie function for your smoothies. So what is the big deal about the smoothie function? Well, just like the original, it mixes your smoothie but this one takes it a step further as it’s already pre-programmed, which means that there’s no guesswork needed as to when your smoothie is mixed well and ready. Easy right?! Just twist on the blending cap, place it on the machine and turn it on!
Have you got a good matcha recipe?
P.S: Just realised that I’ve got this obsession with green food lately! What??
