Healthy Matcha Green Tea Protein Shake with 180 Nutrition

February 24, 2014 2 min read

I've been meaning to make a matcha green tea protein shake recipe for a while now, and after seeing180 Nutrition on social media decided to give their products a try. 180 make a range of all natural protein powders with other good stuff added like almond meal, flax seed, chia seed and coconut flour. Unfortunately I got my street address wrong but being such a nice company they sent my order out again (true story). 

180 nutrition cacao protein shake ingredients with kenko tea

I'm a big fan of adding matcha to my pre-workout shakes (when I make it to the gym - which is rare) and have a few customers report they use matcha for the same thing. It makes perfect sense, the caffeine / L-theanine combination found in matcha creates a sustained energy release, improves cognitive performance and mood while improving mental focus and concentration. L-theanine has been found to create an alert, calm yet focused sensation while enhancing alpha brain wave activity. After one of these shakes you could probably workout for 2 hours then write a novel and cure cancer at the same time. But enough of that - you're here for a recipe.

Here's the first one -

Organic Matcha Ceremonial Grade - 100g Bag (3.5oz)

Lovely green color powder

First matcha purchase!

So far I have made tea cookies, raw nut/fruit balls, smoothies, and plain matcha with cashew milk and it's all good to me! Don't have much to compare it to but a chain coffee shop latte experience years ago. I learned the amazing benefits that make the cost of matcha well worth the price.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
