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.
Vanilla Matcha Green Tea Breakfast Smoothie Bowl (Serves 1)
- 1 scoop Be Well Vanilla Whey Protein powder
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
- Handful baby spinach
- 1/4 avocado
- 3 Tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon Matcha green tea powder
- Stevia to taste if desired
- Optional – 3-4 ice cubes
- Berries of choice
- Unsweetened coconut flakes
- Cashew butter
- Chia seeds
- 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.
- The mixture will be very thick.
- Scoop into a bowl.
- Top with berries, coconut flakes, a drizzle of cashew butter and sprinkle with chia seeds.
Enjoy this after a great night’s sleep!
