Matcha Green Tea Vi-Shape Shake with Ginger & Lemon
Did you know? Matcha packs antioxidant power, boosts metabolism and burns fat. It’s also a great pick-me-up that helps promote energy and mental acuity without the nervous energy that can come from coffee.
- 2 scoops of your favorite Vi-Shape Shake Mix
- 1-2 tsp. matcha green tea powder
Did you know? The chlorophyll in matcha is a safe detoxifier, helping rid the body of heavy metals and other chemicals. Matcha also offers vitamin C and zinc for an immune boost. Minerals like magnesium, selenium and chromium provide many health benefits.
Why is matcha powder better than loose leaf green tea? One serving of matcha contains as many antioxidants as 10 servings of brewed green tea—that’s more than goji berries, pomegranates, blueberries and acai berries combined.
- 1 tbsp. ginger (grated)
- 1 lemon (juice)
Did you know? Ginger helps reduce nausea, indigestion and bloating. Lemon contains vitamins A, B6, C and E plus beneficial minerals that help improve hair, skin and teeth.
- 6 oz. skim or soy milk
In a blender, combine all ingredients until well blended and smooth. Garnish with slice of lemon as desired.
