This smoothie bowl is plant-powered by Ergogenics Organic Greens Powder which contains greens like spirulina and matcha tea, two note-worthy superfoods, among others.
Spirulina is anti-inflammatory, contains protein, B-complex vitamins and is a good source of plant-based iron. Evidence suggests that spirulina may lower blood pressure, LDL cholesterol levels and balance blood sugar levels.
Matcha tea is reported to have a much higher antioxidant content than green tea, which makes it a potent immune-booster. Other health benefits of consuming matcha tea on a regular basis include improved memory, vision and a sense of calmness.
The addition of fresh ginger in this bowl gives a kick of heat. I eat ginger almost every day for its anti-inflammatory properties which help muscles recover faster. Enjoy this breakfast smoothie and let us know what you think!
- 2 bananas, frozen

1. Blend banana, avocado, ginger, protein and greens together in a food processor or high powered blender. Tip: For a thick smoothie that holds its toppings, limit liquid. You can also add ice or nut butter at the end to thicken.
