Blueberry Matcha Smoothie3_1200Directions:

1.Place coconut milk, 2 tbsp. maple syrup, salt, vanilla, and lemon into a high-speed blender. Blend until evenly distributed. 

2. Pour ½ cup out of the blender into a measuring cup and set aside.

3. Take the medicine flower extract and add it into the blender and blend until even. Remove from the blender and place it into a large 4 cup measuring cup.

4. Take the ½ cup of coconut milk that you set aside and place it back into the blender. Add the matcha powder and 1 tbsp. of maple syrup as well. Place that into the blender and blend until evenly distributed.

5. Pour that into a measuring cup and rinse the blender out.

6. Put the first batch back into the blender and add 2 cups of ice. Turn the blender on high and blend in the ice. This ice mixed in just turned the mixture into a smoothie.

7. Take 2 decorative glasses and place a large spoonful of the smoothie into the bottom of each glass from the blender. Then place 5 or 6 fresh blueberries on top of the bottom layer. Place a layer of the matcha mix over the blueberries. Repeat this procedure until you fill the 2 glasses to the top.

8. Use 12 oz. decorative clear glasses. Sprinkle the top with coconut flakes and place 1 blueberry on the top.

Here at A Taste for Tea we are a bunch a fun-loving tea drinkers, particularly matcha. We love matcha not only as a Japanese traditional and very auspicious drink, but for its wonderful health-giving properties. Loaded with anti-oxidants, catechins, chlorophyll and vitamin C, it's an enjoyable way to gain health and enjoy the l-theanine sense of sustained calm energy. Our goal is to share the tea and the experience for those learning all about matcha.
