Power Up with Pro Matcha Plant-Based Protein – Smoothie Recipe and Giveaway

Maintaining a fit and healthy lifestyle is a major priority for me.

Like many women who are trying to live a balanced life – while juggling work, family,

exercise and other responsibilities – staying energized is a must!

Recently, I’ve been working with a personal trainer to improve the effectiveness of my

strength and cardio fitness regimen.

One of the main points that my trainer emphasizes is the importance of consuming

sufficient protein before and after workouts.

It’s practically his mantra – for some very good reasons:

Amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, serve a variety of vital functions related

to energy production including:

*the reduction of serotonin levels, which help to cancel out fatigue caused by
exercise and ultimately helps to improve workout performance

*the prevention of muscle loss and assistance with muscle synthesis

Of course, my trainer recommended a few of his favorite muscle-building protein powders,

but as a vegan, I prefer to use a high-quality, plant-based protein supplement that delivers

20 grams of protein or more per serving.

“I have been supplementing my diet with

Vibrant Health products such as

Green Vibrance for years, so when I was

offered the opportunity to try their

Pro Matcha Plant-Based Protein

Supplement, I leaped at the chance.”

 

What is Pro Matcha?

Power Up with Pro Matcha Plant-Based Protein – Smoothie Recipe and Giveaway

Pro Matcha Plant-Based Protein is a whole food protein supplement created by

Vibrant Health featuring Matcha, a green tea that provides relaxed alertness as well

as a strong antioxidant profile.

I am a huge fan of green tea – especially Matcha – so the inclusion of Matcha immediately

caught my attention.

I rarely start my day without a steaming mug of green tea.

Like many of us, I’m not really a “morning person”, therefore green tea helps to energize

me in a healthy way!

“For centuries, Matcha tea has been

celebrated in Zen Buddhist culture

because of its ability to enhance both

mood and concentration.”


The Magic of Matcha

 

Power Up with Pro Matcha Plant-Based Protein – Smoothie Recipe and Giveaway

As you may know, Matcha is a specially grown and processed green tea.

For centuries, Matcha tea has been celebrated in Zen Buddhist culture because

of its ability to enhance both mood and concentration.

Matcha is considered one of the world’s healthiest drinks due to the fact that:

*this whole-leaf tea delivers a wealth of nutrients including vitamins and
minerals, amino acids and antioxidants

*it is alkalizing rather than acidic like coffee

*it is a powerful source of chlorophyll which is a significant detoxifier

*it delivers 6x more amino acids than most green or black teas

*one serving of Matcha tea has 10x more antioxidants than regular green tea

*the amino acid L-Theanine and the caffeine in Matcha work together to
enhance your concentration and clarity–without the annoying jitters

*you can benefit from up to 4 hours of sustained energy without the familiar
“crash” you often experience when drinking coffee

According to Vibrant Health, DoMatcha, the brand of Matcha they use in Pro Matcha

protein, is the world’s most expertly produced and respected brand of Matcha tea.


The Power of Plant Protein

The Algal, Sacha Inchi, Yellow Pea, and Spirulina used in Pro Matcha provides 21 grams

of protein.

Most importantly, Pro Matcha protein delivers all of the essential amino acids and branched-

chain amino acids – plus the vital Omega 3,6,9 fatty acids.

This powerful, low carb, easily absorbed protein combination plays an important role in a

healthy lifestyle by helping to:

*curb hunger

*detoxify

*boost immunity

*effectively support fitness efforts

“Pro Matcha’s potent ingredients

add up to a vegan, gluten free, non-GMO

protein powder that is detoxifying, energizing, 

curbs hunger cravings, and can be used a

pre or post workout protein shake.”

For my Pro Matcha experiment, I chose vanilla–which is my favorite–so when the package of

Pro Matcha Vanilla arrived at my door, I couldn’t wait to open it up and explore the contents.

This supplement is designed to be a perfect addition to smoothies and lattes–and it can also

be used to fortify a variety of dishes from oatmeal to cookies or waffles and pancakes.

The sky is the limit!

Because I had lots of fresh fruit on hand, I decided to whip up a healthy, wholesome, protein

smoothie with Pro Matcha.

I hope you enjoy this fresh and frothy, tropical blend of sweet, juicy fruits, almond milk and

Pro Matcha nutrients as much as I did!

The fact that this supplement curbs hunger and aids in weight loss was a key benefit for me.

I didn’t experience nagging hunger pangs for several hours after drinking this satisfying smoothie.
