I have been waiting to share this recipe with you guys! I crafted it up for my collaboration with Laney & Lu Cafe, the cutest local cafe serving fresh, local whole food & drink options that “nourish your body and feed your soul”. Can you tell why I was so damn excited to collaborate? They are everything that BL stands for!

 

Yesterday I took over their Instagram account shared a bit about BL/myself and crafted up a few matcha smoothie bowls in their cafe. It was such a blast to work with such nice like minded people in the wellness space so I want to take a quick second to thank Jen the owner of Laney & Lu and Stef the general manager. You both are so gracious and real class acts! Thank you for letting me share to your audience!

** PS. If any of you go in to Laney & Lu this week and order the smoothie bowl tag me on Instagram @blissfullylively so I can see 🙂

You guys fair warning this matcha smoothie bowl will soon be you fav. superfood packed bowl, just sayin’! This bowl was inspired by my intense love for matcha latte’s and when playing around in the kitchen one day I decided to experiment with a little in my smoothie which resulted in the creamiest whole food goodness ever. The rest was history.

This bowl is packed with natural antioxidants from the matcha, so many good fats from avocado, protein from the almond butter and fiber from the greens & fruit! My number one goal when creating smoothies is to make sure i’ve got the 4 key ingredients. Healthy fats, fiber, protein & greens! I also topped this smoothie with my fav. accessory ingredients to add the perfect amount of crunch & sweetness to this bowl.

Ok time to reveal the recipe!
