This matcha green tea yogurt smoothie is a healthy afternoon drink to help satisfy hunger and bring a boost of energy.
These last few months I’ve shared several healthier recipe posts which I’ve been making to help maintain a healthier lifestyle. I plan on continuing to share more and hopefully you’ll find some of them helpful to you as well.
January was easiest, as everyone seemed to have the same mindset. But now there’s been Super Bowl Sunday, Valentine’s Day, and long weekends and it’s definitely getting harder to stick to good eating habits.
I still try my best to eat well during the work week. I make healthy lunches and dinners, avoid eating out too much, etc. Born Sweet® Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener has been extremely useful. I’ve turned to it often to sweeten up my daily drinks, whether it be my morning coffee, breakfast or afternoon smoothie, or afternoon tea.
For instance, my green tea smoothies. I’ve expressed my love for matcha green tea. It’s such a beautiful color, has a number of health benefits, contains caffeine for my afternoon energy boost, and I just really enjoy the flavor. On its own, it has a very strong, bitter flavor, so some sweetener is definitely needed. I also use plain nonfat greek yogurt for my smoothies. Plain greek yogurt has a lot of protein, which helps keep me full. I always choose plain so I can control the sweetness.
Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener has worked great at sweetening my smoothies while not adding any calories to my drink! I also like that Zing™_Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener is made with only real ingredients and nothing artificial.
