Tropical Coconut Matcha Smoothie

Another yummy smoothie recipe to share! Made with healthy (and pretty popular right now) Matcha green tea powder and packed with protein from the yogurt (13 grams per serving) this smoothie is guaranteed to keep you going until lunch. It worked for me and I’m always hungry right now!

“The health benefits of matcha tea exceed those of green tea because when you drink matcha you ingest the whole leaf, not just the brewed water. One glass of matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content.” (Source)
