Today I’m headed into Boston for a research study. I woke up earlier than I’d like to admit, fit in a run that ended up being pretty crappy, and now I’m trying to rush to get other stuff done before I have to leave for the train. However, I get to also go to Veggie Galaxy with a friend tonight!
Back in my pre-vegan days, there was this Asian Market I loved exploring when I lived in Boston. I once bought a huge green tea latte milk tea mix that tasted slightly like melon, it was amazing.
To try and recreate that taste, I have made this green tea smoothie (I wish it looked more green!).
It’s pretty simple actually.
1 1/2 cups almond coconut milk
1 cup watermelon (I froze a bunch of it in cup-sized portions this Summer to use later in the year)
Vanilla Protein Powder
1 tbsp green tea powder (matcha)
You just blend these ingredients together to make the smoothie.
I also have really been enjoying an even simpler recipe for a hot green tea latte.
You simmer 1 cup almond coconut milk and 1 tbsp green tea (matcha powder) until boiling, and then I like to add some liquid stevia extract in to that. Mmm. And great because I refuse to drink coffee but haven’t given up caffeine entirely.
