A quick, healthy breakfast, supercharged to energise you with the natural benefits from green tea
2 bananas large, frozen (sliced 1inch pieces)
2 tsp. matcha powder
2 tsp. agave nectar (optional)
1 avocado, ripe
2 handfuls spinach
2 tsp. chai seeds
2 tsp. hemp
coconut chips, toasted
Preparation time – 5 mins. freezing time – 6-8 hours
Cut the bananas into 1 inch slices and place in a freezer bag, and freeze for 6-8 hours.
Blend together avocado and spinach, then place the sliced frozen bananas in your blender with the matcha powder and blend it together until you have a smooth thick texture. Add the agave nectar if you would like it sweet and blend it again. Pour into 2 bowls and top with your favourite toppings, be adventurous!
Matcha is an alternative way of getting your caffeine boost in a healthier way. Matcha powdered green tea is full of antioxidants, it has over 100 times more than regular brewed green tea. Be adventurous with your toppings. Adding a handful of spinach gives that extra boost and you can add a tsp. of almond butter for extra protein. If you are not a fan of avocado, add 100ml of almond milk and choose another fruit of your choice. As it contains caffeine, I’d advise not serving it to children!
