Green juices and smoothie are all the rage everywhere you go. And for good reason! Smoothies and breakfast shakes are such an easy way to pack your own specifically happy blend of nutrition into a quick and easy meal. In this recipe, the kiwi brings a bright, fresh, summery flavour. The yogurt and almond milk bring some protein and calcium, and chia seeds and spinach give you iron! Matcha green tea is a great source of antioxidants, but can be bitter, if that’s not your taste. Blending it with the sweetness of kiwi will help take the edge of that.
For those who don’t have time in the morning to make a smoothie, try making it the night before and storing it in a jar or blender bottle. In the morning shake it up and you’re ready to go. Another option is to make the smoothie whenever you have time in large batches. Then pour it into an ice cube tray or two and freeze them. When you want a smoothie, just throw the cubes in a blender and you’re all set!
