We’re already unofficially celebrating the fall season, but we’ve still got some summer days ahead of us. So let’s say goodbye to an amazing summer with one last matcha drink—the summer glow smoothie! Made with strawberries, papaya, mango, and matcha, this matcha smoothie is sure to make you glow, inside and out.
A healthier you with fruits and matcha
This recipe is all-natural and naturally good for you. From the fresh fruits and high quality matcha green tea, you’ll be reaping the health benefits from this smoothie. To top it all off, it tastes as good as it actually is. The fresh flavors play around from being tart and sweet, giving a hint of earthy umami notes from the matcha powder.
Strawberries are a great source of vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants. Meanwhile, papayas are also high in vitamin C, folate, and potassium. They can aid in digestion, reduce inflammation, and boost the immune system.
Lastly, mangoes are a good source of vitamin C, vitamin A, and folate. They may work to lower cholesterol levels, improve skin health, and boost brain function. All of these fruits are also low in calories and high in fiber, making them great choices for a healthy diet.
In addition to all the benefits you get from the fruits, using high quality Japanese matcha gives you loads of health benefits too. It’s a clean, jitter-free source of energy that may help melt away anxiety and might also protect heart health too. There are many more health benefits of matcha that you can read about here.
