A tropical matcha smoothie bowl with fresh greens, mango, pineapple, and banana. A refreshing and healthy vegan breakfast!
Smoothie bowls might be my favorite breakfast ever.
They’re everything I love about smoothies, but somehow the thicker consistency and eating with a spoon makes them even more satisfying and filling.
Then there’s the toppings.
Smoothie bowl toppings give you an unlimited amount of customization so you can make something truly unique.
They add interesting textures, flavors, and a satisfying crunch to your smoothie.
But what really makes me love this matcha smoothie bowl in the mornings is matcha’s energizing and focus enhancing effects.
It wakes me up and gets me ready to take on my day!

How To Make
Matcha Smoothie Bowls
Wash and dry any fresh produce. Cube the pineapple and mango and slice the banana. Set aside in the freezer for at least 2 hours or until frozen.
Fresh Tip: Using all frozen fruit is important for getting the thick and creamy texture that smoothie bowls are known for. If you don’t use frozen fruit your blend will be to runny to eat with a spoon.
To get the proper smoothie bowl consistency I only use 1/4 cup of coconut milk. You’ll need a powerful blender like a Vitamix to handle all the frozen fruit without a lot of liquid (I recommend this Vitamix if you’re on a budget).
If you don’t have a high speed blender, you will need to add more liquid. If your blender has trouble breaking down leafy greens, try blending the coconut milk, kale, and spinach together first before adding the frozen fruit.
Blend on high using the Vitamix tamper to push the ingredients towards the blades.
Once the ingredients have broken down and the mixture begins to blend on its own, remove the tamper and blend on a medium speed until thick and creamy.
Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!

I love to add a scoop of protein powder to my smoothies or smoothie bowls.
It’s a great way to make sure you’re getting enough protein each day and to make your breakfast smoothie a bit more filling.
I use a plant-based protein brand called Gainful.
You take a short quiz to let them know about your habits, body type, and what you’re looking for whether that is to lose weight, gain muscle, etc.
Then they personalize a protein blend just for you!
I chose a protein blend that would both help me tone and maintain muscle while also helping me to lose weight!
Here’s what my own personalized Gainful protein blend looks like:
