Healthy Shamrock Shake: Minty Matcha

Healthy Shamrock Shake: Minty Matcha

By Kathypatalsky

If you love Shamrock Shakes this time of year, give this healthy-makeover, antioxidant infused green tea version a try. The bright green color is not from food coloring or even spinach or greens, but rather from matcha, aka green tea powder. This frosty cool shake is the perfect way to treat yourself. Feel good sipping this shake since matcha is loaded with green tea antioxidants and there is not any ice cream or dairy in this energizing recipe. Plus get a boost of green tea caffeine for a slight energy burst. Get info on matcha and get my minty matcha shake recipe..
