Oh, how I missed green smoothies! With all this cooking I’ve been doing since the start of the year, smoothies have taken the back burner. For the past few weeks I’ve been craving green smoothies, so during my spring break, I decided to make a power-packed green smoothie. This smoothie is filled with super-foods, protein, antioxidants, vitamins, fiber and the list goes on. The benefits of Matcha and Moringa are so great that they should be a staple in everyone’s diets. They both provide antioxidants, boost heart health, fight inflammation, promote immune function and so much more. I won’t lie to you they both have an acquired taste if you’re not too fond of vegetal powders. But the benefits outweigh the taste and with the right amount of ripe fruit and your sweetener of choice, it’s palatable. You’ll never know it’s there! Check out the recipe below:
Moringa Matcha and Kale Smoothie
- 2 cups Organic Kale fresh or frozen
- 1 large ripe Banana
- 2 cups Mango chunks fresh or frozen
- 1 Clementine
- ½ Lemon Juiced
- 1 tsp Matcha
- 1 tsp Moringa
- 2 cups water or your choice of liquid
- 1 tbsp honey or sweetener of your choice
- Combine all the ingredients in a blender.
- Blend till smooth.
- Serve and enjoy.
