Thirsty Thursday: Matcha Smoothie

It’s been awhile since I have done a Thirsty Thursday post that was non-alcoholic.  So, I figured it was about time to do one!  I’ve been trying to be a bit healthier as of late and not drink as much (not evident by the Thirsty Thursday posts!) because in a few short weeks I am running the Los Angeles Marathon!!  It is my first time running a full marathon, so in the last month and especially these last few weeks I need to take care of my body.  A few times post-long run I was not hungry (you would think the opposite, right), would not eat, and literally had to lay in the fetal position because I didn’t feel well.  So, this past weekend after my last 20 miler (yay!) before the marathon, I made the below smoothie and didn’t feel sick!  I packed it with electrolytes, potassium, and is one of the best smoothies I have ever made!  I hope you give this delicious smoothie a try as well!

1 cup Coconut Water

1 Banana, frozen

3 TBSP Matcha Powder (ever since I made these Matcha cookies, I’ve been trying to incorporate into more recipes since Self Magazine named it a 2015 food trend!)

2 TBSP Coconut Flakes
