Banana Mango Matcha Smoothie

This smoothie is a perfect way to start your day.

Matcha is the most concentrated form of green tea. It comes in a powdered form and can be found at many health food stores. It is known as a superfood for its vast antioxidant content. Antioxidants protect our body’s cells from damage. Damage to your cells can increase your risk for many common diseases and can occur in many ways – through stress (exercise), the environment (pollution), exposure to cigarette smoke, and much more. Providing an extra boost of antioxidants in your day can help lower your risk of cell damage by removing those free radicals!
