Matcha, Mango & Kale Smoothie

Matcha, mango & kale smoothie

I have only recently discovered matcha tea and at first I wasn’t too sure but now I love it.  I do enjoy a good cup of tea any time of the day whether it be breakfast tea, fruit, green or herbal, I cannot start my day without a good cup of tea.

I normally have a matcha latte with almond milk and some ground cinnamon but the other day I was making a smoothie and decided to add some matcha powder to see what it was like and I liked it!  I now want to try and incorporate it with baking but that’s only because I love the intense green colour of the powder and think it would look great in a cake or biscuits.

I’ve given the option of using honey in this recipe, I personally don’t use it but I know some people prefer their smoothies to be sweet.  Also, if you don’t have any mangoes this smoothie works well with bananas too.
