This Coconut Vanilla Matcha Smoothie is an awesome way to get your daily dose of zenergy and antioxidants. So wonderfully light, refreshing, and energizing!
I have a small confession to make: I’ve never been a fan of coconut! But I really want to be, so I keep trying. I’ve heard that matcha and coconut is a lovely combination, and given my deep love of matcha, I knew I had to give it a try.
The verdict? I can honestly say it was the first time I ever enjoyed coconut! Turns out all it needed was a little matcha magic. I usually think coconut overpowers everything but it doesn’t here for me at all. Plus it’s such a light, refreshing smoothie with a wonderful balance of flavors. Another great way to change up my daily matcha routine! Hope you enjoy if you give it a try!
