How do I incorporate matcha into my smoothies for the best flavor and consistency?
To achieve the best flavor and consistency in your Encha matcha smoothies, start by sifting the matcha powder to remove any clumps. This step ensures even distribution and prevents lumps in your smoothie. Next, mix the matcha with a small amount of hot water to create a smooth paste before adding it to your blender along with other smoothie ingredients. Blending the matcha with fruits, yogurt, or milk will result in a creamy and well-balanced matcha smoothie!
Are there any health benefits associated with Encha matcha smoothies?
