Vanilla Matcha Green Smoothie Bowl You NEED to Try

By April 9, 2017Recipes

If you’re anything like me, when you want a smoothie bowl, you NEED a smoothie bowl. I love my usual chocolate or banana berry combinations, but the other day I decided I wanted to switch it up and try to find a new flavor. When I saw my matcha tea on the shelf, I knew I had to try it in my post workout bowl. 

Introducing, the matcha smoothie! Naturally sweetened with bananas and with an extra green boost from spinach, this bowl will have you crawling out of bed in the morning!
