I have a small confession to make: I’ve never been a fan of coconut! But I really want to be, so I keep trying 😊 I’ve heard that matcha & coconut is a lovely combination, and given my deep love of matcha, I knew I had to give it a try. The verdict? I can honestly say it was the first time I ever enjoyed coconut! Turns out all it needed was a little matcha magic 💚 I usually think coconut overpowers everything but it doesn’t here at all. It’s such a light, refreshing smoothie with a wonderful balance of flavors. Another great way to change up my daily matcha routine!
