Matcha Mojito Smoothie

This is my all time favourite smoothie that I actually have a recipe for. Lots of the time I just throw whatever ingredients I have available into a blender. However, I am willing to go out of the way and buy particular ingredients for this recipe. The mixture of protein and carbohydrates found in this smoothie is perfect for recovery after a hard workout and is very refreshing on a hot summer day.

Matcha Mojito Smoothie

Most of the time I turn up my nose at ‘green’ smoothies as a lot of the recipes I have tried over the years taste like dirt and are too earthy in my opinion. However, this recipe still contains the greens and nutrients I am looking for in a green smoothie but have powerful flavours that cover up the taste of the greens. Best of both worlds!

I use Biosteel vanilla whey protein powder to make this smoothie. As an athlete who gets random visits from doping control, I am super careful what I put into my body. Supplements such as protein powders are not regulated and can contain traces of substances that are banned in sport. Because of this risk, I usually avoid all supplements. The only time I use supplements is to occasionally add a bit of extra protein into my smoothies as I have a hard time getting adequate protein in throughout the day. If I do use a supplement, I always check to make sure the product is NSF certified. A list of approved products can be found on the NSF webpage. However, just because a product is certified, doesn’t mean is 100% doesn’t contain traces of a banned substances, your risk with those products is just lower. I usually avoid buying smoothies/ protein shakes at food establishments and make my own instead. Smoothies are easy to make and it is much healthier making one yourself.

Anyways, on to the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

Notes

  • Matcha Powder: To shop local, I usually buy my tea/ coffee from McQuarries on Broadway. However, the mint match powder from Davids tea is my favourite for this particular smoothie.
