Matcha Apple Smoothie


I love matcha! it is so easy to include in a healthy diet. It is a versatile ingredient in the kitchen from making a cup of tea to adding amazing colour to cakes and other sweet dishes. I will share one of my breakfast smoothies with you, with matcha in the staring role! 
The wonderful lush green colour is offset by the thick texture resulting from the psyllium husks and the fresh aroma of raw apples. Soaking the cashew nuts will give the milk a lovely creamy, silky texture.

The Low Down:
This great smoothie, is not only delicious. It has so many health benefits! gut and immune friendly pro-biotics and fibres. This is a fantastic drink for getting your calcium and magnesium intake also, these are not only essential in supporting the skeletal system but is needed for many chemical reactions in the body.  Matcha is rich in antioxidants and offers cell protection, great for the skin and said to offer some cancer protection.

Add the other ingredients and blend well till smooth. I sieved the matcha powder because it has a tendency to clump.
