If you love a steamy, hot matcha latte in the morning, you aren’t alone. But one of these gorgeously green beverages isn’t exactly filling enough to start your day alone – especially if you want to fuel yourself pre- or post-workout, or for an active day ahead. Our go-to instead? A satisfying and nutrient-rich Matcha Smoothie Bowl.

Matcha isn’t just used to create delicious tea-based drinks like lattes, though. Available in powder form, matcha is green tea made incredibly versatile. You can use that powder in everything from smoothies and smoothie bowls (like this recipe) to baked goods like dessert loaves to creamy custards to satisfying breakfast pancakes. No matter how you like to enjoy your matcha, it makes a great addition both with its mellow, grassy flavor and its wellness-boosting, free-radical-fighting antioxidants.

And our Matcha Smoothie Bowl is an especially great morning meal or snack to dig into if you’ve just finished working out. Studies suggest that the potent catechins in matcha – most notably epigallocatechin-3-gallate (or EGCG) – may help the body recover from exercise. This same catechin compound may also help strengthen your muscles and retain muscle mass, which is key for anyone who’s engaging in intense workouts. Plus, who doesn’t want to cool down with a chilled smoothie bowl?
