This smoothie bowl is the perfect healthy way to start your day! Matcha is the finely ground powder of a particular variety of green tea grown uniquely in Japan. It is high in antioxidants and fibre, and adds an alluring sweet nutty flavour to smoothies – it is also a fabulous green colour!
2 large bananas
2 teaspoons matcha tea
250 ml/generous1 cup coconut milk, plus extra to serve
300 ml/1 1/3 cups sheep’s milk yogurt
2 tablespoons tahini paste
50 g/1 scant cup baby spinach leaves
2 tablespoons honey
20 g/1/4 cup sliced banana
toasted sesame seeds
red fruits, such as raspberries and pomegranate seeds
Peel and roughly chop 1 1/2 bananas and put in a blender with the matcha tea, coconut milk, yogurt, tahini paste, spinach leaves and honey. Blend until really smooth. Divide between two bowls.
Thinly slice the remaining banana and arrange on top of the bowls with the sesame seeds and fruit. Drizzle over a little extra coconut milk and serve.
Tip: You can decorate your smoothie with any type of fruit although the red fruits are a particularly attractive contrast and add even more antioxidants.
