Icy Matcha-Banana Smoothie
Matcha powder is an antioxidant-rich green tea powder that can be added to smoothies, ice cream, or made into a delicious hot drink with hot water and dairy-free milk. There are many different grades of matcha powder available, and I have tried them all. The cheaper varieties will be bitter and a darker greenish-brown color, while the higher quality grades will be bright green and sweeter. Look for ceremonial grade matcha or latte grade; it should say "1st harvest" somewhere on the package. This is the brand I use. Each teaspoon of matcha powder contains about 60mg of caffeine, so you may want to consume this earlier in the day if it takes you a while to process caffeine.
