A Natural Energy Blend and Nutrient Cocktail
The road to a healthier lifestyle is paved with small changes. Drinking warm water in the morning, reducing the sugar intake, adding a side of veggies to your evening meals – these are very simple changes that you can make without a big effort. And yes, giving up coffee is a big step, but not an impossible one. And this is when the empowering matcha powder enters into frame – adding gradually in small doses to your daily diet is one of those small steps that makes a huge change. You don’t have to give up coffee all at once, but actually accommodate your body with the gentle energizer that comes with matcha powder.
This matcha smoothie bowl is designed to give you the right amount of nutrients to kick start your day without that espresso shot you are used with. Healthy fats, fiber, protein and a balanced dose of our matcha powder will give you a fresh start, balance your hormone production, boost your mood and keep you satiated until lunch.
Health Benefits of Matcha
The vibrant green of matcha powder comes with exceptional health benefits for your body. If you like sipping brewed green tea, you will love the effects of matcha powder, which is actually made from ground green tea leaves. It makes for a perfect ingredient for an additional nutrient boost. I personally like the idea that I can get a spurt of energy in a natural food like a matcha smoothie bowl. If I don’t want to make tea or coffee and I have an appetite this is a perfect solution. The extra benefits from matcha come from shade-growing the green tea plants three weeks before the harvest, resulting in a higher concentration of theanine and caffeine. This confers the matcha powder special properties such as:
- A calming energy which is released gradually throughout the entire day (in contrast with the energy spike you obtain from drinking regular coffee).
- Awareness and focus on what is really important in your daily routine (matcha is actually used by Buddhist monks before meditation).
- High concentrations of antioxidants and chlorophyll to stimulate your body’s natural detoxification processes.
- Important doses of minerals (magnesium, zinc, selenium) to support a healthy activity of your body cells.
I love adding matcha powder to my juices, lattes or even ice cream, because of its special flavor and reinvigorating effects. Adding it to my smoothies and morning bowls gives me a fresh start and turns my breakfasts into nourishing and energizing meals that help me face whatever I have to deal with throughout the day with calm and concentration.
This matcha smoothie bowl is a favorite in my kitchen, because it’s made with delicious and nourishing ingredients – fresh fruits loaded with fiber and vitamins, fresh spinach to support the natural detoxification, coconut, seeds and creamy avocado for a balanced hormone production and the perfect dose of matcha powder, enough to boost my mood and kick start my day.
Add all the ingredients into a blender and process to obtain a creamy mixture.
Divide evenly into serving bowls, garnish with coconut flakes and serve.
