Recipe: Coco-Vanilla Matcha Shake

by JJ Virgin on April 24, 2018

If you’re a green tea lover, this shake is for you!  

And really, everyone should be, considering all the amazing ways that green tea boosts your health: improved brain function and immunity, better mood, increased fat-burning potential… the list goes on. (Find out more here: 5 Ways Green Tea Helps You Lose Weight & Feel Healthy.)

The green tea in this recipe also has something extra going for it: it’s made with championship gold medal-winning Pique Tea Crystals! By cold-brewing, then crystallizing their tea, Pique created an incredible superhero version of my favorite drink. Pique Teas have extremely high levels of polyphenols and catechins, so that means even more of the awesome health benefits.

Their teas also taste incredible – smooth, with a clean finish and light, refreshing flavor. This shake uses your choice of Mint Green or Passion Fruit Green Tea Crystals, but I’ll share a little insider tip: it’s also delicious with their Immunity Elixir Vanilla Rooibos or Peach Ginger Black Tea.

If I sound like a convert, it’s because I am! Pique Tea comes in convenient little packets that make it super simple to pop in a shake or bring along when you travel. (It’s a match made in heaven for any smoothie junkie…)

Try it and let me know what you think! I’d also love to hear your recipe ideas on Facebook or Instagram.
