Get ready to have your taste buds styled! Bye bye hot winter comfort foods and hello fresh fruit bursting with flavor! Now that it is spring time, I like to eat more raw foods. Raw foods in the spring and summer give me more energy not to mention that beautiful natural glow everyone one asks me about. Maybe it’s Maybelline…nope, maybe it’s raw foods! J Lately, my favorite breakfast is a matcha berry bowl. It has tons of antioxidants for anti-aging, hydrates, and nourishes the cells of your body and that kick of energy from the matcha tea is AH-MAZING!
Matcha tea is a delicious green tea from Japan contains a specific set of organic compounds known as catechins. Among antioxidants, catechins are the most potent and beneficial. Really great for anti-aging and healing your cells from free radicals. It has 137 more antioxidants than regular green tea. It also has a little bit of caffeine to get your morning started.
What I like about smoothie bowls are that they pretty basic and easy to make. The real fun and flavor comes from the toppings! This way you can have that smooth, creamy smoothie bowl topped with fresh fruit and granola or nuts for crunch. There are no rules; you make it up as you go.
My latest go-to favorite bowl has been a matcha berry combo. I wake up craving it!
MATCHA BERRY BOWL

1 frozen banana
1 cup frozen pineapple
1 fresh banana
1 handful spinach
1 tablespoon matcha powder
1 scoop Vanilla SunWarrior Protein Powder

Make sure when you blend ingredients for bowl it is thick like frozen soft serve. YYou can add as much or little water to it for as thick or thin as you like. After ingredients from bowl are blended, pour ingredients for bowl in a bowl, duh! Then add your favorite ingredients on top.
