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)

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop Vanilla 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

    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.
    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!
