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...

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)
- 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.
- Now drink and feel the difference!
