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!
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 frozen mango (about 1/2 cup)
- 3/4 cup frozen pineapple*
- 1 big handful spinach
- 1/2 c vanilla almond milk (coconut milk works well, too!)
- 1 tsp matcha powder
- 1 scoop Daily Energy
- Coconut flakes
- 1/4 cup pineapple
- Place everything in a blender until smooth.
- You pick the toppings! I'm using more pineapple, granola and toasted coconut flakes.
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:
Do you love matcha? Ever put it in your smoothies?
