Mint n Matcha Energy Balls


Is there anything worse, when its mid-morning or 3pm, you’re not quite ‘hungry’ but you need a boost… the biscuit tin is calling your name… HOLD UP! I have a solution for you that your waistline and brain will thank me for!

These little balls of energy are perfect to give you a boost and fix you from slump to pump!!

Matcha is so damn good, I’ve made previous recipes and talked about it before, I just can’t get enough.

So why do I love using matcha (not only in delish tea) but creating yummy treats?

Matcha leaves are shaded from the sun in their last few weeks of growth, which increases their chlorophyll and brings out that bright green colour! Then they are finely ground to create a powder. Matcha has a higher value of antioxidants and other benefits compared to other green tea varieties, as you do not strain the tea, rather you consume the whole leaf (grounded into a fine powder).

So, when you drink matcha you ingest the entire leaf and receive 100% of the nutrients of the leaf


Increased Energy without the crash- Due to the way, they harvest and grow the Matcha, the amino acids within the leaves, help balance the caffeine. It is a great idea to swap you cup of coffee for a Matcha Green Tea! It will give you the energy you need without the jitters of coffee.

Antioxidants- Another benefit to Matcha is the high concentration of antioxidants.  It has been proven that Matcha powdered green tea has 137 times more antioxidants than regularly brewed green tea!!

More benefits (but do you need any more proof)

Boosts metabolism and burns calories

Detoxifies effectively and naturally
