Did you know that gram per gram, MATCHA (green tea leaf powder) has up to 20 times the antioxidant power of Blueberries, Açai or Pomegranates!?
This recipe, part of my ongoing series with Hynt Beauty featuring key botanical ingredients from their skincare collection, is all about the matcha!
Green tea has powerful antioxidants to keep your skin (and the rest of you!) healthy and youthful-looking. Hynt uses Camellia Sinensis (green tea) extract in several of their skincare products for just this reason. But green tea (and matcha in particular) has L-theanine to balance out the caffeine and give you a focused and sustained energy boost, meaning you don’t get the caffeine spike and crash like a cup of coffee would give you. Matcha also has been clinically shown to aid weight loss and reduce LDL cholesterol.
Matcha is great on its own as a tea, but equally delicious in other creations, like this green smoothie!
And don’t forget, if you want to try any of Hynt’s organic beauty products, use code ABBY20 for 20% off!
Hope you enjoy!
