Last weekend, I made this Energizing Vanilla Matcha Smoothie Bowl. I didn't feel like eating anything but a smoothie after my workout, and I wanted something I could be excited about eating and it fit the bill. A creamy vanilla matcha base, with a bit of raw protein to rebuild those muscles topped off with some of my favorite things. Sweet berries, a little chocolaty goodness in the form of cacao nibs, hempseeds, golden flaxseeds, and chia seeds for healthy oils and a bit of bee pollen (if you are going to make this and are vegan omit it of course). It was pure love in a bowl and so delicious! If you want to treat yourself well, do yourself a favor and whip one of these up!
Energizing Vanilla Matcha Smoothie Bowl
3 medium bananas
1 scoop raw vanilla protein powder (optional, I used Garden of Life brand)
1/4-1/2 cup raw hemp milk or coconut milk (depending on how liquidy you like it, I like mine thick so I add less)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 Tbsp matcha powder
stevia to taste (or your choice liquid raw sweetener)
fresh organic blueberries
fresh organic strawberries
granulated bee pollen (leave out if you want it vegan)
raw cacao nibs
For the smoothie, combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, using the tamper to press the mixture into the blades. Pour into a bowl, and top with toppings (I used about 1 Tbsp of each spoonable, and more of the berries). Enjoy!
