This might be my favorite smoothie of the summer so far!  The color is the most beautiful mint green and the taste is absolutely delicious. The matcha tea gives an extra boost of antioxidants and balanced energy (caffeine!) to this bowl.  Here are just some of the health benefits of matcha tea:

*extremely high in antioxidants (over 60 times that of spinach!)
*contains high levels of cancer-preventing catechins
*combats inflammation, oxidation & aging
*improves brain function with L-theanine
*detoxes the body with Chlorophyll
*lowers bad cholesterol
*helps with weight loss
*provides energy boost without jittery feeling!
