I'm keeping today's recipe a bit short. My poor honey is stuck in bed with a nasty stomach bug and I'm on tea & soup duty. Poor guy, and on his birthday no less! I'm excited to share one of my favourite smoothies with you though... such an amazing pick me up and I love drinking it prior to a work-out or on busy days. Are you guys familiar with matcha? It's a finely milled, powered version of green tea and has a slew of fabulous benefits. It's high in antioxidants, increases concentration and detoxifies the body + strengthens the immune system. You can read more about all the amazing benefits here! Okay, let's get to it...

You'll need:

1/2 tsp matcha green tea powder
3/4 cup almond or soy milk (I use unsweetened)
1 tsp honey
1 banana
1/2 avocado

Throw it all in your blender and blend. Yummiest and fastest meal ever, right?! Sometimes, I like to add organic blueberries and fresh ginger. If you do, you'll want to increase your almond or soy milk slightly. Have a question? Let me know in the comments and I'll be sure to answer!
