Plant-Based Matcha Mint Smoothie

For mornings when you need a green boost with just a touch of honey.

The color of this plant-based matcha smoothie speaks volumes about its health benefits—you need this vibrant green color in your diet! Matcha is an ingredient you may recognize as a recent addition at coffee shop menus. It is a finely powdered, specially selected green tea originating from Japan. Rich in antioxidants, specifically polyphenols, matcha is known for its potential to help protect against heart disease. While many love the green color matcha lends to food and beverages, its strong taste can be a deterrent. By pairing it with honey and mint, this smoothie is a great way for beginners to add matcha to your morning.

While standard clover or wildflower honey is used in this smoothie, you can find honey with specialty flavors and get creative. In fact, there are over 300 unique types of honey available in the US, each from a different floral source (avocado honey, anyone?).
