I received a sample of EatCleanTea matcha, to create a delicious and healthy recipe. Before I get onto the 'recipe' I made using matcha, I will briefly tell you a bit about the product itself!
What is Matcha?
Matcha is green tea leaves from Japan that were handpicked and stone ground into a fine powder so you can ingest it however you like. Unlike other green tea's you get 100% of the benefits of matcha.

My Summer Of Matcha Smoothie
I created a fruit smoothie using the Matcha & Ginger flavour.
To create my smoothie I used of the following fruit:
I prefer to use frozen fruit when making smoothies. I had previously sliced and frozen the fruit before I made the smoothie, and only used a few pieces of each.
I filled the nutri bullet with fruit to the maximum line and then filled it with water.
Once the fruit had been blended, I then added the Matcha & Ginger powder. I used two scoops and then blended the smoothie again.
You never know with smoothies how there gonna taste, but with this one didn't disappoint! You can taste the ginger from the Matcha powder, which was really nice and wasn't overpowering either! I think this smoothie is a great healthy option and would be the perfect drink for those hot summer days.
