If you aren't using smoothies as a healthy dessert, today is the day to start! By simply adding a few key ingredients you can take any ordinary smoothie recipe from breakfast to dessert in less than 2-minutes simply by adding a little texture. Additions such as frozen bananas, steamed cauliflower, crushed ice and mashed sweet potato all take smoothies next level delicious by giving the mixture a more thick and creamy consistency. I definitely encourage you to experiment with your favourite smoothie recipes and see what a yummy difference it truly makes.


What Is Matcha Green Tea?


Matcha is a vibrant green tea powder made from finely ground, specially grown and processed green tea leaves. It originated in China and has become a popular superfood due it's nutritional profile. Matcha is jam-packed with antioxidants, especially EGCG, which helps to improve cognitive function, and can boost your metabolism, supporting natural weight loss and fat burning. It has a unique flavour best described as slightly bitter, earthy, with a hint of sweetness. High-quality matcha is known for its smooth, umami taste with minimal bitterness.


Here's several reason why matcha is a popular superfood and so good for you:


  • antioxidant powerhouse: matcha is brimming with antioxidants, particularly catechins like EGCG. These antioxidants fight free radicals in the body, which can damage cells and contribute to chronic diseases.

  • brain booster: with a powerful combo of caffeine and L-theanine, matcha supports cognitive function. L-theanine promotes relaxation and focus, while caffeine provides a gentle energy boost, leading to improved alertness and concentration.

  • weight loss secret: matcha contains EGCG which can help to naturally regulate blood sugar and boost metabolism, potentially aiding weight loss efforts.


It's important to note that while matcha boasts many potential health benefits, moderation is key. Never consume large amounts, slowly introduce matcha into your diet, especially if you have any pre-existing health conditions.

Creamy Matcha Smoothie Recipe


The secret to making this creamy desert-like smoothie recipe is the frozen banana. By freezing the bananas first, you create a delightfully thick texture and a smoothie consistency that folds out of the blender like soft-serve ice cream rather than your run-of-the-mill, liquid smoothie. Let's try it!


Ingredients

  • 2-3 banana, chopped and fully frozen

  • 2 tsp Matcha Green Tea powder, organic

  • 1 scoop plantbased protein powder (vanilla recommended)

  • OPTIONAL: handful of crushed ice


Low Carb Option:

  • 1 cup cauliflower steamed in vanilla spiked water (swap for the banana)

  • 2 tsp stevia (if you want extra sweetness)


In a high-powered blender, add all the ingredients. If using the Low Carb Option, wait until the cauliflower has fully cooled before blending. Blend on high until all the ingredients are well combined, about 2-3 minutes. Spoon or pour into a serving bowl and top with your favourite crunchy and fruit toppings.


This smoothie recipe is simply perfect on a hot, summer's day and can be portioned out as a dessert with a little of my famous Raw Cacao Choc Sauce over top and scattering of crushed pistachios. Ok, now even I am salivating! Pop down in the comments and share your thoughts.
