Afternoon Pick Me Up with Matcha

I really got into a collagen and matcha afternoon pick me up without the harshness of coffee. I know everyone faces tiredness at about the mid-afternoon point.  Sometimes when you do have a chronic condition, that old mid-afternoon slump turns you used to have, turns into a dead bone feeling of tiredness you just can't head bob your way out of.

If you haven't tried Thrive Market yet, that is where I get the culinary matcha used to whip up this drink. It's amazing and I love it.  Thrive is great is you live in a small town (or even a big one) because they offer amazing prices. That is so beneficial to me as most of our income goes to my medical expenses.  Plus, not everyone has a Whole Foods Market near them.


Thrive Market sells your favorite organic and non-gmo brands for up to 50% off retail.

As I am mostly paleo, I put in a teaspoon of honey along with a tablespoon of full fat coconut milk, a scoop of collagen, and 1 teaspoon of matcha powder with about 8-12 ounces of Zico coconut water. All of which you can get on Thrive or Amazon.

Blend with your blending stick or blender and enjoy.
