Matcha Body Shaping Smoothie Bowl

BODY SHAPING SMOOTHIE BOWL

This is one of my favourite metabolism-boosting smoothie bowls from my cookbook Healthy Baking – Cakes, Cookies + Raw. It’s high in protein, full of antioxidants and goodness PLUS it helps keep you sustained and energised. The addition of protein will keep you fuller for longer.

 WHAT’S GREAT ABOUT IT

Recognised as a superfood, matcha contains extremely high levels of antioxidants as well as various compounds associated with improving health and gently supporting weight loss. One serve of matcha is more potent than a regular cup of steeped green tea.

Healthy Chef Organic Cerermonial Grade Matcha provides a delicious nutrient rich energy boost before and after your workout. Matcha has been shown to increase mental alertness, and the ability to concentrate both during and after your workout.
