Green Matcha Power Smoothie.

Smoothie Wonders:

Recipes to Start the Day off Right and tackle the afternoon.

This wonderful (almost magical) drink is my everyday drink and it energizes me like crazy. And I say magical because it makes you feel incredibly fit. I have a go to breakfast drink  (see below), and now I have also come up with this afternoon version which I take to work everyday.

My breakfast drink is,  most of the time the one here below or one of these here Detox tips plus Smoothie freezer packs.  I never have the same smoothie twice in the same day, try to vary as much as you can to benefit from all kinds of veggies and fruit.

I drink my afternoon Green Matcha smoothie as soon as I feel the first little hunger pang. It is soooo good and I love it like crazy. It might be something you need to get used to, but I am a die-hard green smoothie drinker so for me goes the greener the better.  Kale can be hard to digest at first, so go slow on the kale if you are new to green smoothies, start off with a 1/4 cup.  The same goes for the flax seeds*. If you are not used to eating a high fibre diet, start off with one teaspoon of flax and gradually up your intake to about a tablespoon a day.

My Green Matcha smoothie is refreshing, filling, nutritious and so healthy!!!! It will make your skin glow and you’ll look radiant all day, everyday. And don’t even get me started on the Matcha, I just love it! It burns FAT! I give a full description of the health benefits here Matcha Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream and once you read that you’ll understand why I love it SO much.
