The Mind Over Matcha smoothie from Booster Juice contains: “Pure Matcha green tea, vanilla soymilk, blueberries, vanilla frozen yogurt, and whey protein powder. Hey! Whaddya know? I have pretty much all those ingredients. The smoothie (for 710ml contains 446 calories, 3.8 g of fat, 4g of fibre, 28g of protein, and 41g of sugar).
Here is my version of the “Mind Over Matcha” recipe:
2 tbsp of Kiss Me Organics: Organic Matcha Powder
2 tbsp of 0% M.F Greek Yogurt
1 rounded scoop of North Coast Naturals Unflavoured Whey Protein, Hemp Protein or Soy Protein (all works well)
1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
1 1/2 cup of Silk almond milk
1) Put all the ingredients listed above in a Nutri Bullet or blender and blend.
Feel free to play around with the recipe and substitute where needed. Also the brand of almond milk, matcha powder, whey protein I use is most likely not what you have at home so just use whatever is available to you.
I have to say, the result of this ‘experiment’ was absolutely amazeballs. It tastes almost exactly like the smoothie I love without breaking the bank (you gotta admit, Booster Juice is not cheap by any means). Not only do you get a caffeine kick from the matcha, the blueberry matcha flavour combination is out of this world. I’ve also experimented by putting a handful of spinach and chia seeds to boost up the nutritional content and it tasted equally as delicious.
