Green Tea, Lemon & Ginger Smoothie Bowl

Green Tea, Lemon & Ginger Smoothie Bowl

One of our favourite food bloggers at the moment is Ruth from @nutritiouslynaughty who whips up amazing recipes! Ruth is an award-winning blogger & freelance recipe creator of low FODMAP, gluten free & dairy free recipes.

Ruth says: smoothie bowls make the best breakfast and are so versatile, there are endless flavour combinations! The refreshing spice of the ginger combined with the citrus flavours of the lemon and baobab perfectly balances out the bittersweet flavour of the green tea.

If I had to share one smoothie bowl tip it would be to always use frozen bananas. They provide an amazing creamy texture that makes it feel more like you’re eating dessert than breakfast! If you want a more filling bowl then I suggest topping it with some granola.

Ingredients for the smoothie bowl

For the smoothie:

  • 1 We Are Tea Sencha green teabag
  • 200ml freshly boiled water
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 25g vegan vanilla protein powder
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1cm cube of fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoon baobab powder (optional)

To decorate:

  • Coconut chips
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Cacao nibs
  • Lemon zest

How to make the smoothie bowl

  1. Start by brewing the green tea in water cooled down to 80 degrees, this stops the leaves turning bitter as they can be easily burnt by boiling water. This can be done by adding a splash of cold water to freshly boiled water or waiting 5 minutes after its been boiled. 
  2. Remove the green teabag and allow the tea to fully cool to room temperature (if not already)
  3. Next up simply blend the cooled tea together with the rest of the smoothie ingredients until you have a thick and creamy texture
  4. Pour the smoothie into a bowl and sprinkle over the toppings
  5. Enjoy!
