Cacao Matcha Pick-Me-Up Smoothie

Written by Jovanka Ciares

If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to stimulants like coffee or energy drinks, I've got you covered. This smoothie contains cacao powder (which is basically chocolate in its purest state before it gets processed), and other nutrients that will lift your mood, regulate your blood sugar and support weight loss.

The other key ingredient is matcha green tea extract, with high levels of antioxidants that can give you extra focus and high energy, without the headaches and energy crashes that you might get from coffee.
