I started making smoothies in the morning a couple of months ago and been figuring out the best recipes that everyone in the family loves. It is just such a quick and easy breakfast snack in the morning, and even if we don’t have time for an actual breakfast at home before we go off to school/work, there’s always time to drink a delicious smoothie. That’s why I’m packing them with as many nutrients as possible and this Green Tahini Power Smoothie is one of my personal favorites, and everyone loves it. It’s made with bananas, spinach, tahini and matcha tea powder, and is therefore high in fiber, folate, antioxidants, B vitamins, and minerals such as potassium, magnesium and iron. The matcha tea powder adds just enough healthy caffeine for a powerful start in the day.
I really like this cooking grade Aiya Matcha since it is not as expensive as the ceremonial matcha, and still has all the health benefits. It’s a great quality brand and at $15 for 100g not that expensive. There is not too much matcha powder in it because our 4-year old daughter drinks this as well (I’ve done enough research and found out a small amount is actually beneficial even for kids). If you have kids in the house, especially older kids who drink a larger serving, and you are concerned, just leave the matcha out.
