Dani Valent’s Matcha Smoothie Bowl

matcha smoothie bowl dani valent

We’ve recently partnered with Dani Valent and we’re so excited that she’s shared her delicious Matcha Smoothie Bowl recipe with us. To see the full video recipe demonstration go to danivalent.com.

We love this Matcha Smoothie Bowl, with the goodness of oats, ginger, almonds and chia seeds and a green boost from spinach and matcha. As Dani is the Thermomix queen, this recipe is made in the Thermomix but you can also use a normal blender.

A couple of tips about this recipe: in hot weather, add a handful of ice cubes. If you want to give it a little extra kick, add some chill powder. And when you’re in a rush, or know you won’t have time to stop for lunch, take a jar of this good stuff to eat later.

Ingredients

Serves: 2-4

Time: 10 minutes + 10 minutes soaking time

Smoothie

  • 50g almonds
  • 80g oats
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 400g warm water
  • 60g baby spinach
  • 1 frozen banana, roughly chopped
  • Half a kiwi, peeled
  • 1 Medjool date, pitted
  • 2 tsp matcha powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 cm fresh ginger, sliced

Toppings

  • 1⁄2 kiwifruit, peeled & sliced
  • 35g shredded coconut
  • 50g berries
  • 30g pistachios, chopped

Instructions

  1. Soak almond, oats and chia seeds in warm water in a bowl for 10 minutes.
  2. Transfer to the mixing bowl and add the spinach, banana, kiwi, date, matcha, cinnamon and ginger. Blend in the Thermomix for 1 min 30 sec/speed 10.
  3. If you want to vary topping, replace spinach with silverbeet or a mixture of greens and mint. Change toppings as desired.
  4. Pour into serving bowls, sprinkle with toppings and serve.

Note: It is important you buy the matcha green tea powder from a high quality source so you receive the full health benefits and also so the flavour is not bitter. Low quality matcha can be very bitter. You can buy Zen Green Tea premium, Japanese matcha green tea powder for the best price in Australia here.

Two Ingredient Healthy Matcha Nice Cream

Two Ingredient Vegan Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream
Ingredients
  • 2 large (or 3 small) bananas, peeled, cut into chunks, and then frozen in a freezer bag
  • 1 tsp Zen Green Tea matcha powder (www.zengreentea.com.au)

Instructions

  1. Place banana chunks into a food processor fitted with the S blade and turn machine on. Let the motor run until the bananas have a super creamy texture, just like soft serve ice cream. It might take a little time and the processor may make loud noises but it will work – don’t worry 🙂
  2. After the bananas become creamy, add Zen Green Tea matcha powder and blend. Serve immediately. Makes 2-3 servings. Leftover can be refrozen and then re-blended for a perfect texture. I love to serve topped with fresh summer berries!

You can make an amazing array of flavours too for example vanilla bean, orange peel and cacao:)

The matcha will give you an amazing energy kick and it’s packed full of antioxidants!

Matcha Green Tea Powder Ice Cream Recipe

MATCHA GREEN TEA POWDER ICE CREAM RECIPE

The quintessential matcha green tea powder ice cream recipe. Dreamy.

  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup raw evaporated cane sugar
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons sifted Zen Green Tea Matcha powder blended with 1/8 cup water to form a smooth paste
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Scald milk mixture over low heat, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar, then remove from the heat. In a small mixing bowl whisk the three egg yolks lightly.

Slowly pour 1/4 of hot milk into egg yolks, whisking as you go to temper them, then add the yolk mixture back into the remaining hot milk. Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat until it thickens a bit. Remove from heat and pour back into mixing bowl.

Combine the matcha paste, cream and vanilla and add to the milk mixture. Whisk to blend and cool, then cover tightly and chill thoroughly. Follow the directions for your own ice cream maker.

“I was very disappointed when I had to give up ice cream to achieve my weight loss goal! However, when I told my nutritionist and personal trainer about this recipe I found, they researched the health benefits of matcha and said it was ok for me to have it as my weekly reward! I fell in love with this recipe and was so happy that I was achieving my weight loss weekly goals and still had the chance to reward myself at the end with my now favourite dessert!” – Kim Simpson
