On day eight of our smoothie days of summer, we are going to introduce you to an incredible tasting nutricious smoothie.

Day eight’s smoothie is the Matcha-Mint Smoothie.

Skip the morning coffee, and start your day with a melon-and-matcha-powered smoothie. The caffeine in the antioxidant-packed green tea powder won’t give you the jitters the way that coffee does.

1 cup chilled honeydew melon chunks

1/2 cup soft silken tofu

1 Tbs. lemon juice

1 tsp. matcha green tea powder

1 tsp. honey (or to taste)

Place all ingredients in blender, and blend until smooth.
