|matcha banana smoothie with a hint of mint|
After spoiling me immensely for past couple of months or so, my parents are now back in Malaysia. It looks like I have to get back to the business of taking care of myself once more! On the bright side, I'm looking forward to cooking and blogging more actively again. However, I've engaged in so little productive activity over the past few weeks that I feel like I've lost my blogging mojo. All's not lost, though. What better way to get back into it than by making something supremely easy like a smoothie?

I had a banana that I threw into the freezer awhile ago when it was getting very ripe, and I utilised it to form the base for this cold, yet comforting smoothie. The banana provided so much sweetness that sugar was made redundant. The earthy notes of matcha dug pleasantly into the senses, while the mint finished everything off with a light, refreshing tingle. Feel free to adjust the ingredients to suit your tastebuds.

Whiz everything together in a blender until smooth. Garnish with a tiny sprinkle of more matcha powder and a baby mint leaf.
