Banana Matcha Green Tea SmoothiePublished: 2016-06-01Prep time: 5 mins Cook time: 0 min Total time: 5 mins
- 1/2 of a frozen banana
- 1 cup of almond milk (we recommend vanilla)
- 1 teaspoon of Epic Matcha green tea powder
- 1 serving of protein powder of your choice
- Put all the ingredients into a blender on medium, rotating and pulsing until the frozen banana is mixed evenly throughout the matcha smoothie.
If you’re a little lost on protein powder, start out with soy protein. In addition to being the healthier alternative, soy protein pairs well with just about anything considered to be amongst the meats when it comes to high-quality proteins.
Especially for those who aren’t on a strict exercise regime, soy is the perfect protein to get additional vitamins and minerals and curb your appetite. Experiment until you find your favorite.
(Maybe even swap the vanilla soy milk for chocolate?)
