matcha green tea goodness

Ok, I only have time for a quick post, as I got distracted today and didn’t quite accomplish as much chemistry as I had set out to do. But that’s alright! I won’t let it stop me from reaching my goal of finishing a unit this week. The more I read, the sooner I get this class outta my life!

One of my distraction’s was running; I ran a lovely 6.47 miles. So what better thing to have after a nice run than a nice smoothie!

Matcha Green Tea Power Smoothie

Hold the protein bar, will ya!

green goodness!

Ingredients:
whey protein powder (I used just under 2 tbsp)
1 tsp matcha green tea powder (I use this one)
1.5 tsp unsweetened shredded coconut
dash of honey for sweetness (or any other sweetener such as maple syrup or agave)
8-10 ice cubes
1-2 cups of unsweetened coconut milk

Directions:
Combine all ingredients together in a magic bullet/blender and enjoy!

I might add a banana next time to form a better smoothie ‘paste’ as I basically just sucked all the goodness out of the ice, but I just didn’t want banana in it this time!

I’ve also tried adding vanilla frozen yogurt and that makes it reeeeally nice!

If it does get really chunky, just add more coconut milk, because who doesn’t love a little more coconut milk!

I’d like to apologize for the crappy picture of the actual smoothie (ie: camera on phone), as the hubby stole our only camera to use at his golf lesson today. We all know what I’m asking for, for my birthday!

Well, time to go shower, so I can get a bit more chemistry done before dinner. Dinner is looking like it’s going to be a quinoa salad (based on what ingredients I have waiting for me in the cupboard and fridge) and maybe a small batch of broccoli and cheese soup! Then the hubby and I will try and squeeze in a workout later tonight.

What are your favourite smoothie flava-flaves?!
