Looking for a change from your boring morning oatmeal? This vibrant green smoothie is a delicious alternative to your regular breakfast in a bowl, with over-the-top health benefits to keep you glowing all summer long. You already know that spinach is a nutrient knockout, and that avocados are the king of healthy fats. But the superstar of this smoothie bowl is the matcha (powdered green tea), that is so rich in antioxidants it’s been credited for helping lower risks of cancer and heart disease, and boosting metabolism. Matcha can be found at most health food stores and specialty aisles of large supermarkets, and can be drank as a nutritious tea or blended in a smoothie like this one.
