This recipe, Matcha Lemon Blueberry Smoothie, uses only four ingredients and despite the simplicity, it makes a super scrumptious and healthful snack.
Matcha, lemon, and blueberries–they are super healthy ingredients on its own. But mixing them creates the magic in flavor and nutrition. Sometimes, the synergetic effect makes more than two when you add one and one. In a similar way, lemon brings up the brightness of blueberry flavor surprisingly well. Since I have experienced the magic one summer, lemon has become indispensable whenever I cook something with blueberries.
And that is not the only reason I use SEI MEE TEA’s Matcha Lemon in this recipe. It is because Lemon’s Vitamin C enhances the bioavailability of antioxidants of Matcha tea powder, and makes the powder even healthier for you!
There are four other flavors available in SEI MEE TEA’s flavored Matcha: Matcha Ginger, Matcha Mint, Matcha Rosehip, and Matcha plus Guarana and Ginseng. “Flavor” when you say ‘flavored something’ sometimes sounds like fake or cosmetic. However, all of the SEI MEE TEA’s flavored Matcha use real food or herbs and no artificial additives. On top of that, 100% of the ingredients are organic. It is reassuring to know the “flavor” comes from real food and it actually brings nutrition as good food is supposed to.
Matcha Lemon is also very convenient. We love to use Matcha Lemon to make “Matcha Lemonade”. Lemonade can be dangerously loaded with sugar. But you can have 100% control over how much and what kind of sweetener you use. We love to make a conscious decision about how to fuel our body and mind!
For those reasons, Matcha Lemon Blueberry Smoothie is one of the staple snacks at our home–simple, scrumptious, and super healthy. When fresh blueberries are in season, wash them and dry them gingerly with paper towels and freeze them. You can enjoy the goodness all year long.
