It doesn’t get easier than blending up a smoothie| but the wrong combination of ingredients can leave you with a breakfast that’s too sweet| too chalky| too thin| too (insert your smoothie problem here). In the Spring and Summer| I start craving a flavorful| refreshing| and frothy smoothie| and this vanilla matcha smoothie became my go-to warm-weather blend. After an early run in my neighborhood| I hop in the shower| mix up this two-minute breakfast| and sip as I catch up on email and get ready for work. I don’t even have to worry about brewing up a cup of coffee since antioxidant-rich matcha green tea is tossed into the blender| offering the energizing boost I need to start my day.
