This is a rich, creamy and nutritious smoothie, perfect for those days when you’re craving a major health kick.

(Serves 1)

½ tsp. matcha tea powder
Flaxseed
Maca powder
1 small avocado
200ml coconut milk 

In a mug, whisk the matcha tea powder (preferably using a matcha tea whisk for a lovely, frothy result) with a couple of tablespoons of boiling water. In a blender, mix the remaining ingredients. Pour into a glass and top up with the matcha tea. Drink and feel rejuvenated. 

Did you know, maca powder has been found to normalise menopause symptoms and support mood and general brain health? As it’s rich in vitamins, minerals, protein and essential fatty acids, it’s also amazing for boosting energy levels. No wonder maca root has been used by native Indians in Peru for thousands of years – it’s usage dates back to around 3800 B.C. We got there eventually…!
