Why You Will Love This Matcha Smoothie Bowl

If you are someone who usually starts their day with breakfast, you will want to make this smoothie bowl for your next breakfast!

It’s filling, it contains caffeine from green tea, and it’s packed with nutrients. 

Other benefits of this green smoothie bowl include:

  1. Rich in Antioxidants: Matcha and kiwi are loaded with antioxidants that help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the body.
  2. Boosts Energy: Matcha contains a natural form of caffeine which, along with the natural sugars from banana and kiwi, provides a steady energy boost without the jitters associated with coffee.
  3. Supports Immune Health: High in Vitamin C from kiwi, kale, and spinach, this smoothie can help strengthen the immune system.
  4. Promotes Heart Health: Avocado is a great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, which can help lower bad cholesterol levels.
  5. Enhances Digestion: High in fiber from ingredients like banana, kale, and avocado, which promotes regular bowel movements and aids in overall digestive health.
  6. Nutrient Dense: Provides a wide array of essential nutrients including vitamins (A, C, K), minerals like iron and calcium, and phytonutrients from greens.
  7. Hydrating and Refreshing: The addition of coconut water and the high water content in the fruits make it hydrating, which is essential for maintaining good health.
  8. Supports Brain Health: Avocado is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and other essential fats that are beneficial for brain function.

Recipe Notes And Smoothie Bowl Variations

You can tweak this smoothie bowl recipe easily should you need to.

Below are some suggestions:

  • The Liquid: Add tropical flavor by using coconut milk instead of almond milk. Coconut milk will also thicken the smoothie even more.
  • Add Protein: A scoop of protein powder can add a good amount of protein, but it may alter the taste slightly. I recommend that you use unsweetened protein powder.
  • Nutritional Boost: Add seeds such as chia seeds, nut butter, or other add-ins for a boost of nutrients and more flavor.
  • No Banana: If you don’t like bananas, use frozen mango or pineapple instead!
  • No Avocado: If you don’t like or have avocado, swap it for 1/2 cup of frozen berries or 1/2 large ripe banana.

Top Smoothie Bowl-Making Tips:

  1. Add Liquid Slowly: Different blenders and food processors will blend the smoothie differently. Some may require more liquid. Small amounts. Too much liquid will make the smoothie bowl too runny. You want the smoothie thick. If needed, shake the blender if it seems stuck.
  2. Use Frozen Fruit: Frozen fruit is very important to making this smoothie bowl. If you don’t have frozen fruit, the recipe won’t work.
  3. Chill Your Serving Bowl: Place your serving bowl in the freezer for a few minutes before assembling your smoothie bowl to keep it cold longer.
  4. Don’t Forget The Toppings: Add texture and nutrients with toppings. You can experiment with your own toppings of choice.
  5. Eat It Immediately: The smoothie bowl is ice cold and starts to melt as soon as it’s blended. Eat it within 10-15 minutes of blending.

Matcha Smoothie Bowl Toppings

Some toppings that work well with this green tea smoothie bowl include:  

  • Hemp Hearts.
  • Sliced Kiwi.
  • Red Berries.
  • Drizzle Nut Butter.

Feel free to experiment with other toppings too!

The Equipment:

Nutribullet

For this specific recipe, I have only made it using my Nutribullet 600.

However, from experience, most food processors are able to process smoothie bowls. 

Alternatively, using a high-speed blender is key. Not all blenders can blend thick smoothies.
