Every morning I blend together a healthy, “green” smoothie. It gives me a great start to my day by infusing it with plenty of fruits and vegetables. Now with the help of Kiss Me Organics, I also get a dose of Organic Matcha Green Tea. With the addition of Organic Matcha Green Tea it helps provide me with all day energy and focus and a jump start for my metabolism in the morning. Unlike traditional green tea, Organic Matcha Green Tea is used in powder form because it includes the entire tea leaf which dramatically increases the nutritional content.
When I first received my package of Organic Matcha Green Tea, I was surprised at how small the package was (4oz) and then I read the packaging and it stated that a serving was only 1/2 – 1 tsp. It’s amazing that adding just a little bit of Organic Matcha Green Tea to your smoothies, lattes, and even muffins or cupcakes can help your body. I read on their Amazon product page that matcha can also help your skin. Scientists have discovered that Matcha Green Tea helps protect skin from harmful UVrays, while improving blood flow and oxygen levels lifting the overall quality of the skin. It also have 137 times the antioxidants of brewed green tea.
For my morning smoothie I normally add:
- 1 cup of frozen fruit (normally frozen mixed berries)
- 2 cups of spinach or kale
- 1 cup of almond milk (unsweetened)
- 1 tsp Organic Matcha Green Tea
Sometimes I’ll add in some ground flax seed, goji berries and protein powder. I also love pomegranate juice but it’s so expensive so I only use that occasionally.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
