Mean Green Matcha Smoothie Bowl
The good folks over at Matcha Bar in Williamsburg gave me a matcha packet to get creative with. The first thing I thought was: this is smoothie bowl material (as I do with most superfoods people kindly offer me!)
This was my first time trying matcha in a smoothie bowl, and I was a bit nervous on what flavors to combine it with. I always use bananas as a base, so that was a given. I decided to pair it with some mango (for tropical Goddess Vibes) and kale (for some extra vitamins, because #winter) and used a tsp of matcha powder. I knew the mango would help sweeten the base because matcha can come across as bitter at times. Bananas always add a lovely creamy texture for my smoothie bowls, and help the toppings to stay buoyant.
- 2 frozen organic bananas
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 tsp matcha green tea (real)
- 1/2 cup mango
- 1 cup of tuscan kale
Blend until smooth, or desired consistency is reached.
For my toppings, I used anything (& everything) I had on hand.
- chocolate buckwheat “rawnola”
- buckwheat groats
- chia seeds
- sesame seeds
- goji berries
- hemp seeds
