R is for Raspberry Matcha Smoothies {A to Z Challenge 2018}

Untitled-171

At work, we’ve begun serving Matcha smoothies. Here’s what Matcha Source has to say about the tea:

What are the Health Benefits of Matcha Tea?
*One serving of matcha tea is the nutritional equivalent of 10 cups of regularly brewed green tea
*When you drink matcha you ingest the entire leaf and receive 100% of the nutrients of the leaf Matcha powdered green tea has 137 times more antioxidants than regularly brewed green tea

The matcha powder is pretty bitter though, so we like to use honey to sweeten our smoothies, and then raspberry syrup to flavor it. I’ve only had it a few times, but I hope to enjoy this delectable and healthy treat in the future.

    Raspberry is my favorite. I had a matcha smoothie with raspberry syrup before though and the syrup kind of covered up the matcha flavor. No idea on the proportions though, it was at a non-Starbucks coffee shop.

      I work at a non-Starbucks coffee shop and really enjoy it, but can see how the proportions could have gotten messed up. We’re trying to regulate that where I work. 🙂
