This refreshing melon and matcha smoothie is a blessing for the body, mind, and taste buds.
Honeydew is juicy and sweet and pairs beautifully with coconut. And the matcha & chlorella powder turn this refreshing green treat into a true superfood sensation!
Matcha is made by grinding high quality nutrient-rich green tea leaves into a fine powder. It is absolutely loaded with inflammation and disease-fighting compounds including the subgroup of antioxidants called catechins. One particular catechin, EGCg, is widely recognized for its anti-cancer properties. Matcha is also used to induce a sense of calm while simultaneously boosting energy, concentration, memory and metabolism!
For 2 servings, blend together until smooth:
- 2 cups diced honeydew melon
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut water
- 1/2 cup canned organic coconut milk
- 1 to 2 tsp matcha powder
- 1 tsp chlorella powder
- pure stevia or agave to sweeten as desired
Option to add vegan, gluten-free or paleo-friendly protein powder as directed and/or 4 Tbsp hemp hearts (not gluten-free) for an extra protein boost. Garnish with fresh mint and serve.
