Energy Boosting drink with great health benefits.
Matcha Ninny is the newest of the Trim Healthy Mama drinks. It can be served hot or cold. It’s summer, so we are drinking ours cold. Here’s the link to the video on the benefits and how to make it. If that link doesn’t work for you, here’s a different one.
So we make a few tweaks to their recipe. We use chocolate protein powder!!!! They use plain protein powder but we love the hint of chocolate that the other gives to the drink. I’m not a huge fan of milk, but chocolate milk, that’s a different story entirely.
Sooo, in this house, you don’t make one of anything. So we are making two here. For yours, you’d just use half of your chosen container for both almond milk and water. Ours are these cute pint jars. We got the red one at Dollar Tree, so cute. The other has a chalk board label and was about $3 at TJMaxx or Ross or someplace like that.
By using half almond milk and half water it lightens the caloric load.
Add the liquid to the blender. Then add the other ingredients: matcha, sweetener (We use Super Sweet.), vanilla, coconut oil, and salt. We just get inexpensive matcha at Walmart. It probably isn’t the best quality but we like it and can afford it.
Then add the protein powder and give it a quick whirl. Now if you like it frothy/foamy, then blend it longer but we don’t like foam.
Pour into your containers. We add a couple ice cubes because it is so hot right now that we need cool refreshment. Enjoy!
Until next time, God bless,
