Green Tea Power Smoothie
There’s nothing like a refreshing drink right after a good workout. However, don’t just settle for any sugar-filled sports drink. Try this hydrating and nourishing green smoothie instead. It’s made with flaxseed, matcha, avocado, leafy greens, and mint for added freshness.
Flaxseeds are a great source of healthy fat and fiber so it fills you up and keeps you satiated for hours until your next meal. It contains the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid known as omega-3 or ALA, which is good for the heart.
Avocados are tasty and are great for digestion. It makes a great addition to your smoothie if you want to get that thick, creamy texture. It’s also sweet enough to cover up any bitter aftertaste from the leafy greens (if you’re not a fan of the taste).
The addition of matcha powder is perfect as it adds in a hefty amount of antioxidants. It’s also a good way to sneak in caffeine for an energy boost.
Bring out the blender and whip yourself up this delicious power smoothie!
What you'll need:
- 1 tsp flaxseed
