Macha green tea and coconut milk smoothie

Before I fall asleep at night, or sometimes in the morning as I wake up, I think about what my favourite part of the last day was. It puts things into perspective for me and shows me what I love. And what I'm loving most right now are cold, sunny days; reading books that open my mind to a different perspective on life; that feeling of connecting to people that you don't get in groups; and looking after myself: eating well, but not feeling guilty if I overindulge, trusting myself rather than just doing what other people expect, doing what I feel like in that moment even if it means cancelling all my plans and spending the whole evening reading in bed; and making delicious smoothies, like this one here
I blitzed a frozen banana (tip: peel and cut it into chunks before freezing) with some matcha green tea (I diluted a couple of teaspoons in a small amount of hot water first), honey, coconut milk and a couple of ice cubes. It took me less than a minute to down the whole thing, so I guess that my body needed it


  1. hi zuza. Was good to meet you last night. You have amazing food on your blog! Bravo! mmmmm!
    I love this smoothie idea!!

  2. Hi zuza how are you? (Chandra's friend here).
    It's been a while. I'm hoping you can help me out here. I'm looking for a nice side dish (simple) to accompany Chocolate Chilli Chicken and I'm at a loss! Any suggestions?
