Vanilla Matcha Protein Smoothie Recipe

Matcha green tea powder is less bitter than steeped green tea and its super concentrated form packs in ten times more antioxidants per serving. Matcha is also a good detoxifier and provides a mellow, more sustained caffeine boost — perfect to throw into a pre-workout shake, if you ask us. Plus, it tastes even better with a hint of vanilla.
