FINALLY: a dessert you won’t feel guilty about.

This Matcha Dessert Smoothie is a sweet start to your day or a decadent after-dinner treat. It’s packed with nutritious, wholesome ingredients that make for a smooth taste and a light finish. The two superstars in this smoothie? Matcha and cacao!

Matcha, also known as green tea powder, has all the same health benefits of green tea that you love. Full of antioxidants, a natural detoxifier, and a metabolism powerhouse, matcha is a simple and satisfying add to any smoothie.

Most people consider cacao, often confused with cocoa, to be a superfood (and for good reason). It’s prepared with unprocessed and unroasted cacao beans, unlike cocoa powder, which loses 90% of its antioxidizing elements while being processed. Cacao on the other hand is a totally nutritious chocolate fix and also one of the highest sources of plant-based iron – beating out spinach and even beef!

With a few unique ingredients, mixed with a handful of smoothie faves, your sweet tooth won’t know what hit it.
