Vanilla Matcha Green Tea Breakfast Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Seems like breakfast smoothies are all the rage these days, so it got me thinking, why not come up with a thick luscious creamy and, of course, healthy recipe that would make the perfect breakfast in bed treat to serve someone you love (or yourself).

The smoothie bowl requires a little bit of prep the night before so that you have a really thick base to start with in the morning; otherwise, it’s as simple as making a regular smoothie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop Be Well Vanilla Whey Protein powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • Handful baby spinach
  • 1/4 avocado

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Matcha green tea powder
  • Stevia to taste if desired
  • Optional – 3-4 ice cubes

Toppings:

  • Berries of choice
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Cashew butter
  • Chia seeds

Directions:

  • In a bowl, stir 3 tablespoons chia seeds into the coconut milk, mix well.
  • Leave to soak overnight in the fridge.
  • In the morning, place all ingredients  (except toppings) into a blender and blend well.
