Mama's Little Secret Energy Drink (THM FP)

I am so excited to be sharing this information with you. I have learned so much from Pearl and Serene (authors of Trim Healthy Mama) which is where I first heard the word Matcha. Serene makes a pudding with it.
I read a little about it and was instantly interested. It is a wee bit pricey but beings a serving is as little as 1/4 tsp. that made the price much more appealing.
Now, I have to tell you just how much I love this stuff!!
It is amazing!
I don't know about you but in my house as we approach dinner time I tend to get more tired and my kiddos seem to have found some hidden energy without sharing with their mama.
So not fair I tell you. lol
Each day the dinner yawns would approach and I begin to daydream about Costco pizza and chocolate cake, both of which are uber-yummy and I wouldn't have to prepare; both of which I do not need.
Then I began making this drink that I'm going to share with you.
It is life-changing!
 Within an hour of drinking it I have energy and lots of it. Not the kind of jittery energy that caffeine can give. I'm actually so sensitive to caffeine in coffee that I don't drink it.
Mama's Little Secret Energy Drink not only gives me energy for hours, but it (bizarrely enough) provides a sense of calm when I need it most. It is the oddest thing I tell you!
It has a light creamy vanilla flavor with just a hint of green tea flavor. It's unbelievably yummy and so good for you!!
And here are some of the wonderful things about it...
  • Boosts metabolism and burns calories
  • Detoxifies effectively and naturally
  • Calms and relaxes
  • Enhances mood and aids in concentration
  • Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium
  • Fights against viruses and bacteria
  • Is rich in fiber
  • Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar
  • Does not raise insulin levels

  • Oh, and did I mention that if you're a Trim Healthy Mama plan follower it's a Fuel Pull?! Oh yeah!!!

    Here's what you'll need:
    • 1 cup unsweetened Almond Milk
    • 1/4 tsp. Matcha powder (I heap mine)
    • 1/2 Scoop Swanson Unsweetened Vanilla Protein Powder
    • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
    • a dash of pure salt
    • pure white Stevia (to taste)

    1. Put all ingredients in a blender and blend for a couple of seconds. I then add a couple of ice cubes, just enough to cool the drink to perfection.
    2. Now drink and feel the difference!
    *This drink is so awesome that I double the recipe and share with my hubby. (aka Mr. Meat and Potatoes, Sweet Tea and nothing green) He loves it!!!


    1. I have a matcha review up today! :) http://grtlyblesd.blogspot.com/2013/11/organic-matcha.html

    2. What a good review of the drink. I shall have to try it now :-) Thanks for sharing!

    3. This tastes like cake batter! I loved it and doubled the matcha!

    4. Put a tbsp of cocoa in this today and it's Soooo good! Love this! Thanks!

    5. I never thought about adding cocoa! Cool. I'm glad you liked it! It's been a life-saver for me on days I just feel like I'm dragging. I can't say enough good things about Matcha powder. I'm so happy I took the plunge and bought it even though I was hesitant about the cost. It's so worth it and you don't have to use much!

    6. Loved the recipe. Good for refreshment. But to get a little boost I prefer caffeine energy drinks.

    7. Any idea if this is okay for pregnant or breastfeeding mammas?
