Matcha-mint chip shake

matcha-mint chip shake

When I was a kid I LOVED mint chip ice-cream. Now a days I veer more toward strait up chocolate but the taste and smell of mint with chocolate still gets me nostalgic.

This shake makes a great afternoon pick me up. It’s also very cooling at the same time which I think makes a great balance.

Matcha is one of those ingredients making headlines on every health blog right now. It’s being used in smoothies, desserts, healthy snacks and of course as a tea. It has a wonderfully fresh grassy taste, which when paired with the mint in this shake tastes really refreshing.

Health bennies:

Matcha – High in antioxidants, boosts your immune system and increases energy.
