Green Tea Smoothie Bowl

After making my last smoothie bowl, I was really excited about the combinations of smoothies and toppings you could make. With smoothies alone, the possibilities are endless but being able to top them and make awesome little breakfast sundaes is just so much fun. This smoothie uses green tea instead of milk, to the creaminess comes from the yogurt and frozen banana. This makes a great breakfast as we head into summer because it’s nice and cool and doesn’t involve heating up the house at all. To make cold green tea ahead of time, place two green tea bags in a large, heat proof pitcher. Add 1L (4 cups) of boiling water and let cool almost to room temperature. Add 1L of cold water and top with ice, and place in the fridge. Let it steep for several hours, or overnight if you like stronger tea. As always, if you like what I’m doing, share it around! This recipe makes one smoothie bowl. 100_2791 Ingredients:
