When it comes to smoothie bowls -- anything I have on hand is normally what goes into it.

Frozen strawberries are one of those ingredients I always have on hand, and bananas are a pantry staple. These are two ingredients that I must always have in my smoothies/smoothie bowls. Matcha tea powder has become another pantry staple of mine and I have found that I love it most in smoothies.

These smoothie bowls combine some of my favorite ingredients -- bananas, strawberries (because duh, they are in season), matcha tea powder, acai berry juice, and flaxseed meal. Can I get a 'yay' for a healthy, wholesome (and filling) breakfast option?

The toppings though, are my favorite part of all. Granola, sunflower seeds, chia seeds and coconut flakes are always must-haves on my smoothie bowls. Throw some fresh fruit on top and it sends this smoothie bowl right over the top.

See the recipe for these delicious smoothie bowls below:

Prep time -- 5 minutes
Total time -- 5 minutes
Yield -- 1 smoothie bowl


1 frozen banana
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder
1-2 teaspoons flaxseed meal
1/4-1/2 cup acai berry juice
1/4-1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
Various Toppings: granola, unsweetened coconut flakes, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, blueberries.


To a high-powered blender, add all of the ingredients as listed except for the "Various Toppings."
Blend on high until completely smooth, about 1-2 minutes.
Pour into a bowl and garnish with toppings of choice. I like a mixture of granola, unsweetened coconut flakes, chia seeds, sunflower seeds and blueberries.

Oh, and one last thing -- ENJOY!
