I am on my doctor’s naughty list, and I just saw him for the first time yesterday. I had said I would get my triglycerides down and at first, I did drop them 100 points, but they need to come down more and haven’t. My biggest vice is an almost nightly chocolate shake. I am trying to replace that with matcha lattes or smoothies. Much healthier, much lower in sugar.
I have Sil to thank for planting the seed that I should be drinking these. I had thought of it but it didn’t sound that good until she mentioned adding the flavored matcha. YES! I have been experimenting a lot and today was definitely a success.
I used a scoop of Greek yogurt, milk, honey, a banana, and three strawberries – just three because they were HUGE. I sifted in one teaspoon of black cherry matcha and I have to say this was so so sweet and fruity! I have had smoothies without the matcha and I tell you this really perked it up. So now I want more fruit flavors for when I want it super fruity, and plenty of creamy flavors for when I want more creamy and milkshake-y.
Looking forward to some positive changes in my weight, health, outlook, and energy levels!
