Make A Great Energy Smoothie With Organic Matcha- Green Tea Powder by Kiss Me Organics

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

The weather is getting nicer and I have started running first thing in the morning. I am not a morning person and I need some energy to get me motivated to run. I don't want to eat a full breakfast as it is hard to run on a full stomach but my body needs fuel. Forget coffee, as then I have to go potty when running. My solution is a smoothie made with Organic Matcha- Green Tea Powder by Kiss Me Organics.

What is Matcha- green tea powder? It is my secret to great energy for running. Organic Matcha- Green Tea Powder by Kiss Me Organics has other wonderful benefits too like:

Matcha provides 4 to 6 hours of mild steady energy as it acts as both a stimulant and a relaxant. This is ideal for focusing on whatever the day throws your way

Consuming matcha green tea can increase thermogenesis (the body's own rate of burning calories) from a normal 8%-10% of daily energy expenditure, to between 35% and 43% of daily energy expediture.

Scientists have discovered that Matcha Green Tea helps protect the skin from harmful UVrays, while improving blood flow and oxygen levels lifting the overall quality of the skin

Antioxidants are essential as you age to boost your body's natural defenses against oxidation. Researchers have found that a high level of dietary antioxidants can prevent many age-related diseases.

Wow - I've never heard of this. Does it have a lot of caffeine in it, though? I have to be careful with that. Love the recipe - pinned it for later!

I have to be careful with caffeine as well, it looks good otherwise

My brother is really into matcha. He adds it to his protein smoothies. It is so expensive.

It does have caffeine in it but about half the amount of a cup of coffee.
