I've been meaning to make a matcha green tea protein shake recipe for a while now, and after seeing 180 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).
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 -
