You know those meals you just can’t forget? The ones you can recreate in your mouth and have attempted to recreate in person more times than you can count? This Matcha Mint Smoothie Bowl is one of those meals.

Remember when I went to Grand Cayman in January? Well besides missing the white sand beaches, endless sunny days and the nicest people, I also miss the Matcha Mint Smoothie Bowl I got twice at Jesse’s Juice Bar. It was so good, we went back, and I was not ever going to order anything else. It was the smoothie bowl to end all smoothie bowls.

The original smoothie bowl actually doesn’t contain mint, but the first day we were there I spontaneously requested to have some fresh mint leaves added and it was a complete game-changer. Refreshing, energy-boosting and deliciously sweet. Out with acai bowls and in with matcha mint bowls!

You're going to want to hop out of bed for this Matcha Mint Green Smoothie full of healthy and nutritious ingredients.

I’ve since tried to recreate this smoothie bowl at home more times than I can count. I think I was overthinking it a bit and then went a little overboard with the mint…note: don’t add mint like you would spinach. Unless you’d like a VERY refreshing smoothie.

I also figured out that the ingredients you use are key. I like using Silk CoconutMilk because it’s super creamy and blends really well in a smoothie. The first time I tried it, I used coconut water and it was too watery and the second time I tried coconut cream and it was a little heavy for me. Silk CoconutMilk is the perfect middle-ground.

But let’s be real, the toppings are key! Now that we’re into full-on spring/summer here in California, I can finally get some fresh, delicious berries. A sprinkling of granola is key plus a dollop of So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt for a good dose of healthy fats and let’s be real, it just makes it look super pretty…priorities.

An awesome deal at Target for So Delicious and Silk through the Cartwheel App. Perfect for making this Matcha Mint Smoothie!

Speaking of priorities, I’ve got an awesome deal for ya! If you shop at Target you HAVE to download the Cartwheel App and you can save 10-15% off select Silk and So Delicious products until June 1st. You know Mama lives for a good deal so you better bet I stocked up.

And while you’re at it, grab the rest of the ingredients for this Matcha Mint Smoothie Bowl. It’s also the cheapest place I’ve found matcha powder so I highly recommend buying it at Target if you don’t want to pay an arm and a leg.
