a skin loving shake that tastes delicious.
I’ve talked about matcha before…it has such amazing health benefits, but I don’t love the grassy flavor.
I’ve learned to enjoy it as a latte, and recently posted a recipe: Magical Matcha
And since I’m always looking for ways to work more magic into my life, I came up with a matcha shake that is crazy good with only three ingredients.
Here’s what I used:
Matcha is simply finely powdered green tea leaves. Since you are consuming the entire leaf, it is much higher in antioxidants than traditional green tea. It has some wonderful benefits for your skin…whenever you hear “antioxidant” just think “anti-aging.” The antioxidants in matcha can even help with sun damage. Matcha also contains L-theanine, an amino acid that promotes sustained energy and calm alertness. What could be better than that?
Vanilla Coconut Collagen Fuel, from Primal Kitchen Foods, not only gives this shake a totally indulgent vanilla taste, it has even more benefits for your skin and body. Let’s start with the collagen. I’ve been shouting from the rooftops how amazing collagen is for your skin. My skin is firmer now at age 51 than it was ten years ago. It can also help you lose weight, strengthen your connective tissues, and reduce cellulite. And collagen peptides are one of the main ingredients. It also contains healthy fat from coconut, which can give your skin a glow, And it is sweetened with monk fruit, so it’s sugar free. That is totally awesome, since sugar causes wrinkles through a process called glycation. Want to learn more? Read this post: Pour some sugar on me

Cashew milk is my “milk” of choice for blending this all together. You can use whatever you like, just look for something with clean ingredients. Elmhurst is one of my faves…it does contain a tiny bit of cane sugar, but I love how short the ingredient list is. Malk is another good brand…it all depends on what’s available in your area. Maybe you are super ambitious and make your own nut milk. I am not that girl.
Here’s all you do…this is too easy!
happy, healthy and hot matcha vanilla shake
one teaspoon matcha
one cup cashew milk, or milk of your choice
Dump everything in the blender, blend on high, enjoy! If you like it thicker and icy you could throw in a few ice cubes.
Can this matcha shake help you feel happy, healthy and hot? You know it!
You will be happy enjoying a delicious treat made with super healthy ingredients. These ingredients can give you pretty skin, a better body and more energy…very hot!
