Energizing Green Smoothie Bowl

IMG_2972.jpg

I threw together this smoothie the other morning before work and was beyond pleased with the end result. This smoothie bowl is creamy, sweet, velvety, and absolutely energizing. The energizing properties come from the matcha powder, which is a concentrated green tea powder with naturally-occurring caffeine, the chia seeds, which are packed with omega-3s and high quality protein, and the spirulina, which is one of the most protein and vitamin-dense superfoods on Earth. (Fun fact- a small 3 gram serving of the stuff contains 3900% more iron than spinach and 2800% more beta-carotene than carrots). In addition to these wonders, this smoothie will grace your body with fiber, potassium, and countless vitamins and minerals. This smoothie makes me feel like a goddess after I drink it- it leaves my skin glowing, keeps my stomach happy, and prepares my mind and body to conquer the day ahead.

Ingredients: 
(Yields 1 large smoothie)

2 medium, frozen bananas
3/4 cup – 1 cup coconut milk
1 handful spinach
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp hemp protein
2 tsp spirulina powder
1 1/2 tsp matcha powder
1 small handful raw almonds
Optional toppings: granola, nuts, seeds, berries, raisins

Method:
1. In a high speed blender, combine all ingredients and blend until the consistency is smooth and the smoothie has a vibrant green hue. Pour into a bowl and top with your favorite nuts, seeds, berries, or granola!
