At Odacité we are wild about matcha! Can you blame us? Matcha green tea is very potent for the body inside and out and includes many benefits (link to blog above). Our recipe for this matcha mint chip smoothie bowl is great for a sweet morning or afternoon treat, or really anytime a pick-me-up is needed. Matcha gives a caffeine boost, helps detoxify from within and leaves skin fresh and glowing. We also included suggestions for toppings to add for an additional boost.
So what are you waiting for? Continue reading for the recipe! :)
1/3 cup soaked raw cashews, drained
3 cups loosely-packed greens
2-3 frozen bananas (depending on size)
1/4 cup mint leaves (about 3 sprigs)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla powder
2 tsp matcha powder
1-2 scoops french vanilla or chocolate flavour
3 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
maple syrup or stevia to taste
1 tbsp cacao nibs
extra cacao nibs
In an upright blender, combine all of the shake ingredients except for the cacao nibs and blend on high until totally smooth. Throw the cacao nibs into the blender and blend for a couple seconds, just to break them up a bit. From here you can enjoy the shake or you can serve it in small bowls with any combination of the specified toppings. Serve cold.
