Another easy to make recipe, this Mango and Matcha Post Workout Drink will quench your thirst, keep the metabolism up a little longer and boost recovery. What more can you ask for?

If you have access to fresh mangoes all year round, this will be an easy and delicious one for you to make. If you don’t, frozen mango cubes will do perfectly.

What is Matcha?

It literally means “green tea” in Japanese. The strength of matcha lies in the fact that it is powdered green tea leaves. When you brew a cup of green tea, you are only getting a fraction of the goodness the leaves have to offer by virtue of the fact that you are only getting what leaches out into the liquid, and nothing else. Those leaves we throw away? They are still packed in nutrients. So matcha solves that problem by being in powdered form, the personification of the Japanese practice of waste not – Mottainai.

Matcha tea can be a touch bitter, so if you’ve not had it before, I suggest a smaller amount until you get used to it. It provides just that little bit of caffeine to prolong the benefits of your workout.

There is so much more to matcha, I really have to do a post on it one day, hopefully while it’s still en vogue!

Honey in the Mango and Matcha Post Workout Drink

In this recipe, I like to add some honey as I think it goes well with the whole makeup. But that’s up to you. Also, you know that age old belief that you need some sort of sugar to create an insulin spike for the creatine to be absorbed better? If you swear by that, then the honey’s perfect for this. I personally believe that any food intake is going to create that insulin rise, but to each his own.

Protein Powder and Creatine

Use as per your needs. If you don’t use Creatine, leave it out.

Enjoy this Mango and Matcha Post Workout Drink, and let me know what you think.
