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 -

Real matcha

Kenko is the best matcha I've found in Australia. Expensive, but genuine tea matcha unlike the cooking grade which is sold by some suppliers. Whisks up to a beautiful foam, taste and aroma excellent. Reminds me of matcha I bought in Kyoto.

A very nice gift pack

This Matcha tea taste really good. Best advise, only boil water to 80%.
Staff at Kenko are really helpful. A great alternative to coffee.

Best Matcha by far

I've tried several different brands of Matcha over the years and Kenko is by far the best, highest quality Matcha you can buy. I absolutely love it! Thankyou.

Electric Matcha whisk

This great little electric whisk froths up my morning matcha in no time. Easier than using a traditional hand held bamboo whisk. Comes with a compact storage case. Kenko orders are sent with love, wrapped in red tissue paper. Highly recommended.
