How To Drink Green Tea

So you know all about the health benefits of green tea, but maybe you don't like the taste by itself. Maybe you want to kill two birds with one stone, and make a smoothie that can double as a snack or meal, but will give you your green tea fix. Maybe you've tried the Starbucks green tea frappacino, and you want to whip up something similar in your own home. Whatever your reason, you can feel good about drinking these fat-free smoothies, shakes, and lattes, made with green tea matcha powder.

I love green tea, it's one of my favourite things, and I'm also a big fan of smoothies and lattes and frappes; but I can't really imagine drinking something where green tea is mixed with milk.  My imagination just can't seem to get past that one! 

I love the recipes in theory though.  Maybe I'll just have to try to get past this feeling and give it a go...

I have not seen these before, that's bright green.

I'll have to give it a try, some of these recipes sound really good.

High-grade matcha powders to not contain food coloring, if that's what you're asking. They are naturally a bright green color.

Is that green tea's natural color?
