A Mindblowingly Tasty Frozen Mint Matcha Shake

April 11, 2019

Just call this the new Shamrock Shake, but healthier.

Our take is dairy-free, sugar-free, and tastes even better. Plus, it has just enough protein and carbohydrates to get you through a midday hump. It also contains matcha, a type of green tea that’s made from finely ground young green tea leaves, so you’ll also get a moderate amount of caffeine. When you need a filling, energizing pick me up, try this matcha recipe.

Health benefits of matcha

Matcha isn’t just a trendy beverage; it’s packed with benefits and easy to incorporate into your diet. Similar to other green teas, matcha is full of antioxidants called catechins, but because you’re actually consuming the entire leaf, not just steeping them in hot water, it packs more of a nutritional punch.

Catechins in green tea have been shown to have cancer-preventative properties (1). Other research has shown that it may help to lower blood pressure and levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol (2,3).

Matcha is also high in the amino acid L-theanine, which has been linked to feelings of relaxation. It may also negate some of the negative effects of caffeine, leaving you relaxed but alert, without the jitters (4).

Ready for a treat that tastes too good to be healthy? Blend this up.
