Matcha Green Fruit Smoothie Bowl

Matcha Green Fruit Smoothie Bowl

True story: One week I spent $120 on smoothie bowls. One hundred and twenty dollars. Seven days. Ummmm…

Horrified, I’ve been much better at making my own at home lately. I’ve also decided to write a blog post highlighting all the best smoothie bowls in Boston so that I can justify my habit as a tax write-off (lol).

My latest homemade success was this matcha fruit smoothie bowl. One of my favorite nutrient booster powders from MegaFood, their Daily Energy blend, contains green tea so it’s perfect for pairing with matcha powder in smoothies. Add in some greens, frozen fruits and milk alternative and boom–you’ve got yourself a breakfast winner. I’ve been using both mango and pineapple, but if you want to keep the recipe list down, just go with one or the other–it’ll still be delicious!

In addition to organic green tea leaf, the Daily Energy Nutrient Booster Powder contains beet root, B12, and herbs specifically selected for their ability to support energy levels, healthy metabolism and your body’s stress response.* It’d go well in just about any fruit smoothie because the flavors aren’t overpowering at all when you toss a small scoop into the blender. Matcha though … it’s a perfect pair. This recipe tastes as refreshing as it looks!

Especially during summer months, when I come across perfectly ripe fruit at the grocery store, I stock up, purposely getting more than I can eat right then so that I can peel, chop and freeze the excess for smoothies. My freezer is packed with little baggies like this:frozen fruit for smoothies Matcha Green Fruit Smoothie Bowl

  1. Definitely going to try the Daily Energy. Glad to hear it does not have an overpowering taste. Great smoothie.

    That is both horrifying and hilarious! Haha… I have definitely been in that situation. I’ve used matcha in smoothies but not in ages!

  3. Coach Alex says:

    Haha. Why would you spend money on smoothies? I haven’t bought a single one in over four years. Instead, I am preparing my own each morning before the workout. It is a combination of banana, blueberries, raspberries, protein powder, milk, ice and sometimes pre-workout powder. Yummy! Highly recommend. Also, try to add honey on the side. Honey has a lot of boost energy.
