A PERFECT SMOOTHIE TO REPAIR AND REFRESH.
We all know that after a workout, it’s the perfect time to consume protein because it will be delivered to your muscles and can therefore begin repairing your muscle tissue, this is great ANYTIME!
That’s why this mint soursop matcha smoothie is the ideal post-workout drink, or anytime really! It contains dates and avocado, which are a good source of protein. Avocadoes provide all 18 essential amino acids necessary for the body to form a complete protein, and dates contain more protein than nearly any other fruit.
The dates also add sweetness so that you won’t need to add any refined sugars to this smoothie, and you’ll get a thick and creamy texture from the avocado as well. From the spinach, you’ll get your daily greens without the “veggie” taste.
And then, of course, there’s the soursop matcha green tea powder. Soursop Matcha is much healthier than regular tea.
Soursop Matcha is very rich in antioxidants, which have been associated with protection against heart problems, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. Soursop Matcha tea powder also contributes to improved blood sugar regulation, lower cholesterol, and reduced blood pressure. The chlorophyll in soursop matcha helps to detoxify your body of chemical toxins, too.
In addition, soursop matcha is quite the immune system booster, and also has a few beauty benefits as well, including helping your skin to look younger, giving you stronger teeth, and helping burn calories four times faster than your body typically does.
Soursop Matcha also contains L-theanine, which helps you to relax without feeling tired. It can enhance your mood, boost your memory, and sharpen your concentration.
This recipe uses yummy mint, which is always a treat! You can adjust the amount of mint or soursop tea to your liking, but trust us—it’s the perfect refreshment!
