I love avocados and I love Matcha tea, so I thought, why not put them together... it was great! Now top that with whipped cream and sprinkle with salted pistachio! It was unbelievably good!
And not only does it taste good, it is super healthy too! Just imagine combining two power food in one, avocado and matcha!
Avocados are very nutritious and contain a wide variety of (20) vitamins and minerals. It is high in "good fat" (monounsaturated fat), it could also help lower bad cholesterol if eaten in moderation. It is a good source of B vitamins, that helps fight off disease and infection. They also provide vitamin C and E. Avocados are low in sugar and are rich in fiber.
Matcha is known to be packed with antioxidants, boosts metabolism and burns calories. Like most green tea, it detoxifies effectively and naturally. It is also said to be rich in fiber and provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc, and magnesium and it is supposed to lower cholesterol and blood sugar.
