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. As exotic as that word may sound, it’s simply powdered green tea, nothing else.
I read a little about it and was instantly interested and began checking my local health food stores to see if anyone carried it. Only one did. If those near you don’t, have no fear, you can find it easily using our trusty friend Google.
I will say that you might think Matcha is a wee bit pricey but when you see that a serving is as little as 1/4 tsp. that might just make the price much more appealing, as it did for me. One bag lasts a long time!
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 Add the fact that I’m trying to recover from adrenal fatigue and it can be a recipe for an unhappy evening.
Each day the dinner yawns would approach and I would 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 caffeinated coffee can give. I’m actually so sensitive to caffeine in coffee that I don’t drink it unless it’s decaffinated.
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…
- Boosts metabolism and burns calories

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.
