I love smoothies.. like, LOVE smoothies. I literally have a post from 2012 that is all about my love for smoothies!
Why the smoothie? Well, they are SUPER EASY to make (especially if you prep the night before – just put all of your fruit in a zip bag in the freezer, then add your liquid, chia seeds, etc.), great for “on-the-go” meals or snacks and if you’re a new mom like me.. smoothies are excellent “one hand meals’.
Now that my schedule revolves around my baby, my eating habits have not been the best. I recently discovered greens+ by Genuine Health. I’ve been adding a scoop of Genuine Health greens+ Original to my daily smoothies. It has a blend of 23 colourful and nourishing plant ingredients and is the ONLY superfood proven to give you the highest concentration of fruits and veggies to help balance pH and increase energy.
They have a bunch of different flavours and they just came out with a VEGAN product, too! I was sent the original formula in the Mixed Berry flavour, but the Acai Mango sounds right up my alley. The mixed berry adds a very subtle berry flavour to the shake, but honestly you might not even notice the difference.
Now that I am home a lot, I am really into smoothie bowls (so pretty!) I am currently obsessed with this Matcha Berry Smoothie Bowl that is better than any smoothie bowl I’ve ordered at a restaurant. Make this and I promise you’ll never turn back!
Matcha Berry Smoothie Bowl Recipe
- 1 and ½ cup kale OR baby spinach (baby spinach has a milder taste)
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 small avocado
- 1 tsp matcha powder (to taste)
- 1 scoop vegan greens+ ORIGINAL mixed berry
- ½ cup coconut milk (or as needed to make your smoothie super smooth)
- 2-3 ice cubes (I like my smoothies cold)]
- Sliced strawberries
- Chopped almonds
- Chia seeds
- Coconut flakes
Put everything in your blender. Pulse and blend until creamy. I add the coconut milk in tablespoons to make sure the consistency is perfect. Pour into a bowl and top with your chosen garnish.
