Mint Matcha Smoothie for Weight Loss

Ever since I tried a steaming cup of matcha green tea latte at a local cafe, I find myself often craving its rich, earthy flavor with that ever subtle sweetness.

 This mint matcha smoothie recipe is great for weightloss and fat burning.  It makes for a high energy, healthy breakfast drink that is high in protein.  Includes powder matcha green tea, avocado, almond milk.  Recipe is vegan, paleo, gluten-free and low carb.

Matcha green tea latte is equally enjoyable consumed hot or cold in my opinion. On warm days, I find it easier to combine the powdered matcha with my breakfast smoothie for an easy, wholesome jolt in the morning!

This Mint Matcha Smoothie is filled to the brim with green powered goodness! Not only is this smoothie packed with an incredible amount of antioxidants from the matcha green tea for your health, its taste is amazingly refreshing!

There are many incredible health benefits of matcha. A study featured in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that consuming green tea increased your body’s rate of burning calories from 8-10% to 35-43% of daily energy expenditure.

Exercising right after drinking matcha green teawas found to result in 25% more fat burning during exercise in another study.

The mint added to this matcha smoothie can stimulate your digestive enzymes to help absorb the nutrients and fat from the smoothie, turning them into usable energy rather than being stored and contributing to your weight gain(1).

The pear adds the sweetness without causing a blood sugar spike, and the chia seeds are an excellent source of protein and fiber, both of which are weight loss friendly nutrients.

This is an easy, healthy breakfast that is sure to keep you full and energized all morning!
