Organic Matcha DNA Green Tea Is Superfood For The Body



I love Matcha as it is a great way to get the benefits of green tea without having to drink several cups of tea. I love how you can use Matcha for drinking as a tea, lattes, smoothies and even baking. The way I enjoy my Matcha is in my morning smoothie. The Matcha gives me the energy and antioxidants to get me out for a 5 mile run every morning. 

I was sent a package of Organic Matcha DNA Green Tea Powder to satisfy my Matcha daily intake. I started taking Matcha green tea powder about 8 months ago and continue to enjoy it as I have experienced the great benefits of this powder. I love that Matcha DNA comes in individual packages. That means I don"t have to measure the green tea powder every morning, no more green fingers from sticking my teaspoon in the package. I just simply open a package and pour into my smoothie. The individual packages mean my Matcha is going to stay fresher too.


So by now you are asking, what is Matcha? Matcha is green tea leaves that have been made into a powder. We know that drinking tea from brewed leaves is good for us, so imagine how much health benefits come from the leaves made into a powder. Green Matcha is loaded with antioxidants, for example a serving of blueberries has 91 units of antioxidants while a serving of Matcha DNA has 1300 units of antioxidants. One serving of this Match green tea power equals ten glasses of green tea.


I like using Matcha in smoothies and yes it sometimes does give my smoothies a green tint depending on the fruit that I use in it. I make my smoothies with one cup of yogurt or almond milk, a cup of fruit and one serving of Matcha green tea powder. The smoothie pictured below is made with blueberries, almond milk and Matcha DNA powder. I love that I can pack a lot of nutrition in a glass to give me the energy I need to run 5 miles every morning.
