Weekend Recipe: A Matcha Breakfast Bowl With Kiwi
One of the reasons that I love matcha so much is that it’s both energizing and calming at the same time. This green powder has become an integral part of my daily morning ritual, but instead of drinking matcha all the time, I also like to mix it up and create fun breakfast bowls with it. These only take a few minutes to make, and have become my go-to meals in the AM, especially when I’m pressed for time. So if you’ve only used matcha in tea, smoothies or ice cream, I strongly suggest trying it in a bowl. Adding in some of your favorite fruits, such as kiwis, will only make it tastier and more nutritious. ...
