Bare Blends Matcha Green Tea Smoothie

I can’t go past a smoothie. When you get the balance of macronutrients right, it should provide you with a nutrient dense meal that fuels you for four or more hours. To do this, at least two portions of good fats and two cups of green vegetables with your good quality protein powder. Be careful of smoothies with acai powder and excessive amounts of fruit, as the sugar content will leave you unsatisfied, hungry and craving more.

The addition of Bare Blends Organic Matcha Green Tea Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) to your smoothie is the perfect way to include health-promoting tea catchetins, chlorophyll and amino acids. Matcha green tea is ideal to boost your metabolism, support detoxification, accelerate exercise recovery and enhance your concentration. Grab yours here today.
