A creamy green matcha smoothie bowl with banana, avocado and spinach. A super refreshing smoothie to start your day or a revitalizing afternoon snack.
I am a smoothie person who love to start day with smoothie. I have been eyeing on Matcha powder to make a smoothie. But for a long time, I could only find it in stores that sold bulk quantities and I did not want to buy a large amount. Finally, I found it in local Walmart, and I was like a kid who find a long-lost toy. Then I decide to start my day with Matcha green Smoothie bowl.
My love for green tea started during my stay in Japan. Now only occasionally I am drinking green tea. I think I need to start that habit again. Healthy foods can also taste great, this smoothie bowl is an example. You can assure that, this is coming from a person who doesn’t like raw spinach. Yes, I like them only when it is cooked not as raw. But in this smoothie, I didn’t feel any taste different.
From now on you can expect lot of matcha recipes, yes, I am going to try them in baking too. I didn’t keep any resolution, still I want to make some changes in my habit, but it is so cold to venture out. Once the cold subsides I am going to start walking again.
