Start Your Day With A Matcha Smoothie Bowl

The Covid-19 times have taught us to always take care of our health first. The best way to do so is by starting your day in the healthiest way possible. That is why we've come up with a refreshing, nutrient-packed recipe for a matcha smoothie bowl.

Many of you might not be aware that matcha is a high-quality green tea produced laboriously by stone-grounding 100% authentic shade-grown Japanese tea leaves. Matcha is loaded with antioxidants and an amino acid called L-theanine, which offers adaptogenic properties.

So now you see how healthy it can be to incorporate matcha into your day. Matcha has an umami and slightly astringent flavor that adds a quirky touch to your smoothie bowl.

So here we go with the best recipe for your smoothie bowl.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 teaspoons of matcha powder
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 1/2 cup of frozen mixed berries
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk (or any other milk of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of honey or agave nectar (optional)
  • Toppings: sliced banana, mixed berries, granola, chia seeds, shredded coconut, and/or any other toppings of your choice.

Directions:

  • Gather all of your ingredients and prepare your toppings.
  • Add the frozen banana, frozen mixed berries, almond milk, greek yogurt, and matcha powder into a blender. If you prefer your smoothie bowl to be sweeter, add a tablespoon of honey or agave nectar as well.
  • Blend the ingredients together until you reach a smooth and creamy consistency. If the mixture is too thick, try adding more milk until you reach your desired consistency.
  • Pour the mixture into a bowl and smooth out the surface with a spoon.
  • Add your toppings on top of the smoothie bowl in any desired arrangement.
  • Enjoy your matcha smoothie bowl with a spoon and savor every bite!

Tips:

  • When selecting matcha powder, make sure to choose high-quality, organic matcha tea powder for the best flavor and health benefits.
  • Use a frozen banana for a thicker smoothie bowl.
  • Add texture and flavor to your smoothie bowl. Granola, nuts, and fresh fruit all make for great additions.
  • You can substitute Greek yogurt with coconut yogurt or any other dairy-free alternative.
  • Add a spoon of protein powder for a filling smoothie bowl.

In conclusion, a matcha smoothie bowl is a simple and nutritious way to kickstart your day. With just a few ingredients and a blender, you can create a delicious and satisfying breakfast that's packed with health benefits. Whether you're a fan of matcha or just looking for a healthy breakfast option, this recipe is definitely worth a try.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
