Tofu Matcha Smoothie

As we featured a couple matcha recipes, here is one more way that you can use your matcha:  Tofu Matcha Smoothie.

Since matcha is fresh steamed and dried green tea leaves it has a very high content of chlorophyll.  This makes it super alkaline and helps your body detoxify.  Add tofu to the mix and you get protein as well.  A high protein alkaline smoothie is super healthy!

After giving this a try, two out of three of us liked it.  I didn’t dislike it, but it was a bit heavy on the tofu flavor for me.  Maybe if we cut the amount of tofu in half I’d find it easier to enjoy.  It still makes a great pick me up for the middle of the afternoon when you’re feeling a bit peckish.  Why not give it a try!
