Mason Jar Matcha Smoothie

img_4021EVERY MORNING, I WISH I WAS THE FLASH. If I was the Flash, I would be able to zoom about going to the gym, taking a shower, putting on my clothes, applying makeup, and making breakfast in mere seconds before I headed out the door. Sadly, I am not the Flash, and neither is the rest of humankind. insert sobs here

Fortunately, over the past year or so, since I started going to the gym in the early morning before I head off to work or school, I have an entire arsenal of good recipes that I can utilize to make myself a tasty and quick breakfast.

This breakfast has many awesome qualities. They include: (1) CAFFEINE, due to the matcha powder, (2) FIBER & ANTI-OXIDANTS from bananas, and (3) PROTEIN, due to the protein powder.

This is literally the QUICKEST and YUMMIEST smoothie ever!

Ingredients:
