Introducing you all to my super healthy mango matcha smoothie that ticks so many boxes.
But before I bang on about this matcha tea smoothie, I must share my surprise about a friend of mine who does not like mangoes. Weird right? I mean. who does not like mangoes? They are just ripe, orange, juicy, melt in your mouth bundles of sweetness that scream stuff your face full of me like whenever.
Now that the colder months are around the corner, I will be needing my occasional pick me ups . And what better way than to put my super douper blender to work combining mangoes, almond milk and matcha in one super drink. Incase you are new to matcha it is a super concentrated ground green tea powder. It is extremely high in antioxidants and helps boost your energy levels. Ie it is the super hero amongst teas. Now if I was artistic, I would draw you an amazing figurine to go with that description. Not brave enough to try it though.
So this matcha mango smoothie is healthy, tastes good and works as a pick me up drink at anytime of the day. Me thinks you should try it.
