Iced Matcha-Nectarine Smoothie

DSC06368

It feels like the Summer is almost gone so I’ll try to post all my summery recipes before it gets too cold to actually enjoy them.

If you like Matcha, give this drink a try. It is a very smooth smoothie, sweet from the nectarine and with all the health benefits of almond milk and matcha green tea. It is not very thick, but it is quite filling, and with only 3 ingredients you’ll put it together in minutes.

It would make a good, tasty Summer breakfast drink.

To read about health benefits, click on  Matcha Green Tea or Almond Milk.

DSC06358Ingredients:

200 ml Almond Milk

1 peeled nectarine

1/2 teaspoon Matcha.

How to:

1.- If you have a blender, simply blend everything together. If you have a hand-held blender like myself, place the tea, nectarine and half the almond milk and blend till smooth.

DSC06361Add the remaining almond milk and blend.

2.- Serve in a glass with ice and enjoy!!!

DSC06362Note: You don’t need to peel the nectarine. If you do, your drink will have this lovely, vibrant green colour (and I love green coloured drinks), otherwise it will turn a bit brownish, but the taste will be the same, so if you don’t have time, don’t bother peeling it.

Also, the nectarine I used was very sweet, but sometimes they are not, and you might have to add some sort of sweetener to get the right flavour balance.

DSC06365That’s all!

Enjoy and have a great weekend!!!
