That dreaded 3pm slump happens to the best of us – even in our offices, where superfood-doctored potions frequently flow from blender to mug! We drink smoothies and superfood coffees like it’s our job around here, but recently realized that more than one of our favorite blends barely qualify as a smoothie since they’re as thin as a latte.
We decided a new category of wellness drinks was necessary and we’rere calling them “power milks”. This matcha and green powder-spiked power milk recipe is the ultimate example. It is our team’s sippable solution to coffee overload, and we’ve been rightfully obsessed ever since its first spin around the Vitamix.
Using cold-pressed green juice and Pressed Juicery’s matcha hemp milk as a base (read up on ingredient benefits here!), we created this revitalizing blend to house everything we need for a fuzzy-minded afternoon. Discover the key players below, and try an alkalizing, crash-free cup of clean, delicious power with the recipe that follows…
Green Juice: We drink green juice daily for its detoxing and alkalizing abilities, both of which are especially important in balancing out an acidic coffee habit. Green juice also energizes, giving us a dense dose of planty nutrients in a form we can easily absorb (juicing reduces the energy our body needs to digest foods). LEARN MORE
Matcha: Yes, coffee, but matcha offers so much more. Made by finely grinding whole green tea leaves, matcha is used to boost energy and metabolism, while also calming our mood, focusing the mind and cleansing the body. It is rich in chlorophyll, antioxidants, and the polyphenol EGCg known for its cancer fighting and DNA damage-reversing properties. LEARN MORE
Superfood Greens: One of our smoothie pantry staples, Food Matters‘ Superfood Greens offers all the goodness of a green juice in (very practical) powdered form (aka easy double-dosing). The blend contains wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa grass, spirulina, chlorella and mesquite – all of which help balance and energize our body and mind. LEARN MORE
Pearl Powder: Pearl powder is rich in calcium, magnesium, iron, silica and amino acids. In traditional Chinese medicine, it’s valued for skin perfecting properties, and known as a powerful Shen (spirit) stabilizer. Pearl powder supports mood stability, and helps relieve the uneasiness, nervousness, anxiety and tension associated with occasional stress, leaving you cool, calm and collected. LEARN MORE
