Green Tea Smoothie Bowl Recipe

This Green Tea Goodness Bowl Looks as Good as It Tastes

We recently had the chance to chat with vegan nutritionist and dietitian Ellie Bullen to learn more about her daily routines. And while one look at her Instagram will have you convinced plant-based eating certainly looks delicious, the proof is obviously all in the pudding — or in this case, the smoothie bowl.

Toted as Ellie's go-to breakfast (and possibly one of her favourite smoothie bowls of all time), this recipe from her cookbook Elsa's Wholesome Life ($34.95) is not only a perfect way to start your day, but is also packed full of nutritious ingredients, so you can tick off one of your five a day before breakfast is even over!

Notes

This has to be one of my favourite smoothies — it's chock-full of nutrients and tastes so good! Matcha powder is made from ground green tea leaves and it's way higher in antioxidants than ordinary green tea because you're consuming the whole leaf rather than just steeping it in water. Plus, there's a cup of spinach in this smoothie, which means you are getting one serve of your five daily serves of veg.
