I had this for breakfast this morning and it was a good start to the day. This is a simple breakfast smoothie bowl made with the goodness of Matcha green tea powder and blueberries. I have previously discussed the potential health benefits of Matcha, which is exceptionally high in the polyphenol epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), and of blueberries. As well as being rich in antioxidants, the whey powder and cottage cheese provide protein and the coconut and walnuts sprinkled on top provide essential fatty acids. Therefore, this smoothie bowl can be considered a complete and nutritious breakfast that tastes good too.
