Healthy Matcha Green Tea Protein Shake with 180 Nutrition

February 24, 2014 2 min read

I've been meaning to make a matcha green tea protein shake recipe for a while now, and after seeing180 Nutrition on social media decided to give their products a try. 180 make a range of all natural protein powders with other good stuff added like almond meal, flax seed, chia seed and coconut flour. Unfortunately I got my street address wrong but being such a nice company they sent my order out again (true story). 

180 nutrition cacao protein shake ingredients with kenko tea

I'm a big fan of adding matcha to my pre-workout shakes (when I make it to the gym - which is rare) and have a few customers report they use matcha for the same thing. It makes perfect sense, the caffeine / L-theanine combination found in matcha creates a sustained energy release, improves cognitive performance and mood while improving mental focus and concentration. L-theanine has been found to create an alert, calm yet focused sensation while enhancing alpha brain wave activity. After one of these shakes you could probably workout for 2 hours then write a novel and cure cancer at the same time. But enough of that - you're here for a recipe.

Here's the first one -

Best matcha I've ever had.

Authentic & High-Quality

I've tried many other brands of Matcha tea and Kenko – Premium Ceremonial Matcha Green Tea is the best. The taste of Kenko Matcha is so uplifting and pure, just like what it says 'delicate sweetness, grassy overtones, and very light astringency' – LOVE IT!

Love this tea

I have been buying this product from Kenko for a number of years now and absolutely love it.
Wouldn't buy from anyone else
Thanks Kenko :-)
