When every working weekday is the case of the Mondays, sometimes all you need is an energy-boosting drink to power through peak levels of stress. No, we’re not talking about a tall, bland glass of spinach and kale.
Enter our devilish take of what a green smoothie should be: creamy, rich, and pretty darn tasty. We blitz together 2 heaping scoops of avocado ice cream and some matcha powder for that caffeinated kick. And did we mention that this recipe has a surprise flavor-booster? As it turns out, Mint + Matcha + Avocado is the plot twist you never thought you needed until now.
