Banana, Almond Milk, and Matcha Energizing Smoothie

Romaine is not the boring ingredient many salad naysayers make it out to be. It contains many vitamins and nutrients including folate, which plays a role in energy and mood regulation.

Honey is a source of complex carbohydrates, fructose, glucose, and small amounts of sucrose, vitamins and minerals.

Almonds are highly nutritious, containing vitamins and essential minerals. They are also a rich source of dietary fiber and complex carbohydrates, which help to sustain energy throughout the day.

Ingredients

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 Cup romaine lettuce
  • 2 Cups almond milk
  • 1-2 Teaspoon matcha powder
  • 1-2 Teaspoon honey

Directions

Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. I love this smoothie because it’s one of many takes on a green tea latte. The matcha powder is smooth, earthy, and slightly bitter, and balances beautifully with sweet bananas and honey. If you don’t have matcha powder on hand, brew two cups of green tea and chill in the fridge, Use this in place of the almond milk and then throw in ¼ cup of almonds (or the nut of your choice).
