Who wants a quick, easy and healthy breakfast that also works as a jarred meal on the go? I do! That’s why I love this Smoothie Bowl, with the goodness of oats, nuts and chia seeds and a green boost from spinach and matcha, a Japanese green tea powder.
Matcha is made from whole green tea leaves ground into a bright emerald-coloured powder. Learn more on my Ingredients page. In Japan, it’s whisked with hot water and served in temples as a frothy tea. When I visited Japan, I really loved sipping on matcha tea while gazing at beautiful gardens, ponds and stone paths. Maybe I should pretend I came up with this recipe as part of a meditation… But no!
A couple of tips about this recipe: in hot weather, add a handful of ice cubes to give it a little extra chill and when you’re in a rush, or know you won’t have time to stop for lunch, take a jar of this good stuff to eat later.
Time: 10 minutes + 10 minutes soaking time
