The Energizing Smoothie

Vegan, Gluten-Free

Matcha – or vibrant-green powdered tea – is so potent that one cup is equivalent to ten cups of regular tea. If you’re feeling sluggish or exhausted, a quick matcha smoothie is the pick-me-up that you need, and people love matcha because there isn’t a crash afterwards, like with coffee. Matcha is also rich in antioxidants called polyphenols, which can boost metabolism, fight heart disease, and help regulate blood sugar. This four-ingredient matcha smoothie couldn’t be easier to make.

This smoothie relies on kefir, a gut-healing yogurt packed with potent probiotics, as well as other gentle-on-the-tummy ingredients like coconut water and bananas.
