An-"tea"-oxidant smoothie


I love protein smoothies as a quick and easy mini meal in a glass. This smoothie is packed with antioxidants, hence the name, and tastes amazing. Start with 1 cup (8 oz) of almond milk (or coconut, soy, or cow's milk, it's really up to you) in a blender. Add one scoop low sugar vanilla protein powder, I used this one from Beverly International. I prefer whey powders since they are the most bioavailable, but if you are vegan you could opt for soy, hemp, or pea proteins instead. 

Then, add 1/2 cup blueberries, 1-2 cups chopped or baby kale, 1/2 tsp matcha green tea powder, and a few ice cubes. Blend 1-2 minutes until smooth, and enjoy!


The matcha makes this smoothie especially delicious, when combined with the milk and blueberries. Not only this, but it also makes a great afternoon pick-me-up without the crash of some overly caffeinated coffee beverages. There are lots of benefits from tea, particularly matcha.
