Equipment

  • blender
  • sharp knife
  • vegetable peeler
  • measuring spoons

Ingredients
  

  • 5 oz coconut water
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp matcha
  • fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 pinch sea salt

Instructions
 

  • Peel and thinly slice ginger.
  • Put coconut water, ginger, and salt into blender.
  • Slice lemon, remove seeds, and squeeze juice directly into blender.
  • Cover blender with lid. Blend until smooth or no small chunks of ginger remain.
  • Serve slightly chilled or at room temperature.

Notes

I always choose coconut water (or juice) with no added sugar.
I use organic matcha. For this recipe, it doesn't have to be the very best quality. You may not be able to taste the difference.
Sea salt: I recommend using high quality salt such as Maldon Sea Salt Flakes.
