Matcha is a green tea powder that is ground from premium Japanese green teas. It is an antioxidant, highly nutritious, mood enhancing and a metabolism boosting locomotive to boot!! Because the entire tea leaf is ingested, when you add it to a recipe, you are receiving 10X the benefit of traditionally brewed green tea. Matcha has a pleasant “grassy” taste which I have found to be addictive. By adding melon, banana, vanilla, Greek yogurt and a touch of honey, you can start your day with simple, protein packed breakfast.
½ C Non-fat Vanilla Greek Yogurt
2 t honey (if desired)
¼ C fresh orange juice
