This creamy matcha smoothie bowl is an energizing way to start the day with just enough sweetness to taste fabulous but not enough to make you crash.
Matcha love on a Sunday. I’ve got alllll the love for recipes like this. Easy as can be, energizing, and all around feel good kind of stuff. If you haven’t tried a matcha smoothie yet, OMG , crawl out from the rock you’re under and make one ASAP. Matcha is incredibly high in antioxidants. It has more caffeine than your standard green tea bag, but not enough much to have negative effects.
I can’t remember if I’ve shared my coffee feelings with you yet but, basically, we have a love-hate relationship. I love it. It hates me. Sometimes it gives me headaches and just makes me feel all around terrible. Other times, I can’t live without it and its up there with my husband and dog when it comes to favorite things in this world. So, I ween myself off every year or so for a couple of months… and then, or course, I come right back over to the dark side.
I drink it black too. Mmm, I can’t tell you what it is, but something about that bitterness is irresistible.
Matcha though, well, matcha is a little different. It gives you a little caffeine kick, but its a good level. No headaches. No stomach aches. Just good clean, energetic, and healthy. Its like coffee without a downside.
I’m new to matcha, but already loving it. Its a little bit bitter, there’s no denying that, but there’s something about it that I just keep coming back for. I don’t drink it plain very often but I love adding it to things. I’m working my way up to a mugfull.
And matcha aside, smoothie bowls in themselves are a fun switch up from your standard morning smoothie drink. I’ll spare you my raving comments on those since I know I had plenty to say on my first smoothie bowl post.
Smoothie bowls are really just a fun switch up. They’re all kinds of pretty and have the texture that plain matcha smoothies lack. And an excuse to eat flowers. Aren’t those Nasturtiums pretty? I have some in the garden this year and am somewhat obsessed….
