Green Tea Shooter with Spirulina & Matcha

by | Updated: March 14th, 2017

I like to start my mornings with a shot. I toss one back from my trusty shot glass and I know my day is off to a great start. Yes, you read that correctly. But no, I’m not talking about alcohol. The shot that gets me going first thing is a delicious blend of green tea, spirulina and matcha. This green goodness gives me a major nutritional boost no matter the time of the day. You can drink it hot, over ice or chilled. I like it best before breakfast with agave, lemon and chia seeds.Green Tea Shot with Matcha Powder
