Matcha Mash Smoothie


It is close to one hundred degrees here in LA today. Which is crazy talk for late October. So I guess today's Matcha Mash Smoothie will come in handy for soaring, off-season temperatures. Get your hands on this ghoulish good time...

Give your matcha break a spooky Halloween spin..





For this month's Kathy's Matcha Chat I am whipping up a simple matcha shake with a cute ghosty spin featuring spooky chocolate eyes and a swirl of soy cream.

I love this shake because it blends up thick and creamy with sweet flavor that is refreshing and hydrating. You cannot even taste the small handful of spinach that is added, so it is a nice way to get a boost of greens without realizing it. Plus, the Zenergizing effects of matcha make for a nice pick-me-up.



I would serve this as a mid-morning beverage or an early afternoon boost if you have a busy evening ahead of you. I try not to drink matcha anytime past about 4pm because I usually feel the subtly energizing effects for a good 4-6 hours after drinking it.
