|Matcha Berry Smoothie|
Recently I had a chance to try 100% Pure Organic Matcha and I was impressed with the quality of the product. My Organic Matcha arrived in resealable package which is easy to use and helps preserve freshness. The recommended daily dose for matcha is about 1 tbs. The beauty of 100% Pure Organic Matcha is that it can be used in a variety of beverages, lattes, smoothies, bowls, baking and more.
Organic Matcha green tea powder is rich in antioxidants and has strong immune boosting properties. Unlike traditional green tea, matcha preparation consists of growing the tea plants under the shade, then handpicking, drying and grounding into matcha green tea. Being made from high quality green tea, where whole leaves go into production, matcha becomes a powerful source of natural antioxidants. One of them is EGCg which is known for its cancer fighting properties. Matcha green tea also helps to enhance focus and improve memory what is great as with age I notice my memory starts to fade. Even better than coffee, Organic Green Matcha brings energy to your body and one cup or a bowl with matcha can charge you for a day. Matcha is also effective in weight loss, as it is a natural metabolism booster. Just take Matcha 15 - 30 min before a workout to enhance fat burning.
I tried some of Matcha recipes and they are really good. Since Matcha has a strong grass taste I like to use it in blends and smoothies as it mixes with other ingredients. I tried 100% Pure Organic Green Matcha in Matcha and Kefir Weight Loss Smoothie and love it. Here is the recipe from the Matcha Organic Book, very easy to make and perfect for and after workouts. Plus it tastes amazing!
