HEAVENLY HONEYDEW-MATCHA

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.
