Warming Matcha Smoothie
I agree. A warm smoothie doesn’t sound all that appetizing to me either. But after a long, chilly winter of drinking cold smoothies, a hot one actually makes a lot of sense. Think drinkable oatmeal, fortified with energy and nutrients. Including Arbor Teas' organic matcha green tea provides a welcome dose of antioxidants, L-theanine--an amino acid proven to promote relaxation, chlorophyll--the powerful detoxifier, Vitamins C and A, selenium, zinc, chromium, and magnesium. All of this makes for a healthy, natural energy boost and delicious start to your day.
