Matcha and avocado Smoothie Bowl

As soon as spring comes along, my eating habits change. My spring and summer breakfast turn into smoothie bowls! I love trying different variations and this time I’m going to be sharing my favorite one with you : Matcha tea and avocado (of course!).

There are so many reasons why I love this matcha and avocado smoothie bowl :
  1. It’s super tasty
  2. It’s extremely nutritious. It keeps me full for 6 hours, which is crazy! (Note: I’m usually hungry every 1 hour)
  3. It’s very healthy. It contains no milk, sugar or flour.
  4. It’s refreshing. No surprise with this amount of fruits.
The basis for a smoothie bowl :

Once we get the hang of the basics on how to make a smoothie bowl, we can experiment with the variations.

  1. In a bowl
  2. Pour some cereal
  3. Pour fruit pulp on top (think of it as a thick smoothie or baby food)
  4. Garnish with chopped nuts and fruit
Ingredients for two servings :
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 small organic bananas*
  • 150 γρ. coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon of Matcha powder
  • 2 teaspoons of molasses**
  • 5 tablespoons of sugar-free cereal ***
  • Garnish : chopped nuts and fruits ****

* You can make this without using a banana, but the banana gives aroma to the smoothie
** Instead of molasses, you can add any natural sweetener, like honey, agave syrup, etc. I prefer molasses because I have low blood pressure, and it helps me sustain my energy for the day.
*** In addition to classic corn cereals, I use sugar-free zea wheat pop, quinoa pop and amaranth pop.
**** I garnished the smoothie bowl seen in the picture with cashews, Aegina peanuts, pumpkin seeds, mavrokouki, a little grated coconut and amaranth pop. Other times, I just garnish solely with Aegina peanuts and strawberries (yummy!).

Instructions :

  1. In a blender, mix the coconut milk, avocado, banana, Matcha, molasses (or any sweetener of your choice) on low speed.
  2. Serve the cereal in two bowls.
  3. Carefully pour the smoothie over the cereal.
  4. Garnish with fruits and nuts.
  5. Enjoy!

See you soon,
