WHAT IS MATCHA AND THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF MATCHA

Matcha is a type of finely ground green tea powder made from specially grown and processed green tea leaves.

It has been a traditional part of Japanese culture for centuries and is renowned for its vibrant green color and unique flavor profile.

HERE’S HOW IT’S MADE:

Growing: Matcha is made from tea plants (Camellia sinensis) that are grown under shade for about three weeks before harvest.

This process enhances the chlorophyll content, giving matcha its vivid green color and boosting its nutritional value.

Harvesting: The youngest, most tender leaves are handpicked, usually in the springtime.

Processing: After harvesting, the leaves are steamed to prevent oxidation, then dried and deveined. The resulting product is called “tencha.”

Grinding: The dried tencha leaves are ground into a fine powder using traditional stone mills. This grinding process is what sets matcha apart from other green teas, as the whole leaf is consumed rather than steeped and discarded.

Matcha is prized for its rich umami flavor, which is a combination of sweetness, bitterness, and savory notes.

It also contains a unique amino acid called L-theanine, which is known to promote a sense of calm alertness, and focus.

Additionally, matcha is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, making it a popular choice for those seeking a healthful beverage.

In culinary applications, matcha is not only enjoyed as a beverage but also used to flavor various dishes such as desserts, smoothies, and savory dishes.

Matcha is also rich in vitamins and minerals. It has vitamins A, C, and E to boost your immune system. You’ll also get minerals like potassium, calcium, and iron in every cup.

CUSTOMIZATIONS OF MATCHA MANGO SMOOTHIE

Yes, this matcha mango smoothie is customizable. Add or substitute some ingredients as you wish. I would say though mango is essential for the taste of this smoothie.

You can add frozen bananas, for a creamier smoothie.

Strawberry or papaya would be great in this smoothie too.

I can see myself making endless variations of matcha smoothies.

Each will give your drink a different twist. Use coconut milk, oat milk, or any milk of your choice.

If you dont have matcha you can use green tea instead. However, that would make a green tea smoothie which is okay but not quite the same. 

ADDING EXTRA TOPPINGS OR MIX-INS

Adding toppings or mix-ins makes your smoothie stand out. Chia seeds, flaxseeds, or granola are perfect for a little crunch and nutrition.
