THE MATCHA BL🔵🔵BS SMOOTHIE

I love blueberries.  I love matcha. And the two together?  Well — you know I’m gonna say it — it’s a MATCHA MADE IN HEAVEN...

Blueberries are absolutely bursting with flavour & nutrition.  In addition to being packed with vitamins, minerals & fibre, bloobs get their deep blue hue from powerful antioxidants known as anthocyanins.  In fact, blueberries contain among the highest antioxidant capacities of all the commonly consumed fruits & veggies. These natural disease-fighting agents are believed to help in the prevention of cancer, diabetes, heart disease & even cognitive decline!

Matcha green tea powder is another antioxidant powerhouse.  One of its antioxidants, 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.
