"Matcha" Smoothie Bowl
I ended up calling this the “Matcha” Smoothie Bowl because the smoothie base of this bowl ended up tasting a lot like a sweet light matcha, but I did not put any matcha in it.
So… if you like matcha you may like this one ;) You will also like this one if you like a more “green” smoothie flavor (think like a hint of wheat grass NOT a bunch blended kale and collards).
IF YOU DO NOT usually like green/earthy tasting smoothies, you can just omit the wheat grass powder.
WAYS TO MODIFY FOR YOUR MACROS:
You can modify amounts and ingredients to help you meet your macros. *Just note that the macros shown for this recipe are only accurate if you use the same ingredients and amounts shown in the recipe* :
NEED MORE PROTEIN?
Add a bit more protein powder, I added plenty of the milk so even if you add 15g more of the protein powder the texture should be fine.
You can obviously also increase the amount of almonds to increase the protein a bit but the amount of fat will increase at a much higher rate.
NEED LOWER CARBS AND FATS?
Have it as a smoothie instead of a bowl (macros for just the smoothie base are at the end of the recipe, scroll down).
NEED MORE CARBS?
Top with extra kiwi and banana :)
SPECIAL TOOLS & EQUIPMENT NEEDED
A blender :)
Photos do not include every step, just thought it could be helpful to have some examples of what the process looks like. (Let me know if this is helpful to you).
STEP 1 : In your blender, mix the banana, almond milk, protein powder, ice and wheatgrass powder.
Blend until smooth.
STEP 2 : You will probably have enough for a bowl and some extra to drink as a smoothie ;)
Fill your bowl with the smoothie base, leaving some room for the toppings. If you like your smoothies extra thick, leave in freezer for 5-10minutes before adding the toppings.
STEP 3 : Peel and slice the kiwi and place on top of the smoothie base.
STEP 4 : Place the rest of the toppings on your smoothie base.
STEP 5 : ENJOYYYYYY!!!!!!

NutraKey Protein Powder (Vegan Vanilla Cookies) <— This is the link to their website. I buy it at a local supplement shop for cheaper. I also found it on amazon for cheaper but I didn't like the reviews from the seller so I didn’t want to risk linking that.
Antler Farms Wheatgrass Powder <— Amazing texture and taste
