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 2018? 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!

What is matcha?

Matcha has gained popularity in the health world over and for good reason! Matcha is a type of green tea that is high in antioxidants. Studies have shown that it can help with liver health, heart health, and brain function. (Source) It does have caffeine in it but I find it impacts me more mildly than coffee does.

Match Smoothie Bowl Ingredients

  • banana – adds creaminess and a little natural sweetness to this smoothie. If you’re not a fan of bananas, you could try substituting with fresh avocado and adding a little maple syrup or honey for sweetness.
  • matcha powder – I’ve been loving Golde Pure Matcha lately!
  • coconut milk – use the carton kind, not canned kind. Canned will result in a super thick smoothie bowl!
  • fresh mint – adds a delicious, fresh flavor to this bowl.
  • baby spinach – the green base! I like using spinach because it’s such a mild tasting green but you can swap for any green of your choice.
  • cinnamon – optional, but is the perfect spice pairing to this bowl.
  • toppings – fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, etc.

Thanks to multiple test runs, I 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.

Even though a good base is necessary, the magic is in the toppings! A sprinkling of granola is key plus a dollop of either yogurt or  Coconut Milk Yogurt for a good dose of healthy fats and let’s be real, it just makes it look super pretty…priorities.

Smoothie Bowl Customizations

  • Milk – Feel free to swap in any type of milk you’d like.
  • Fruit – I recommend keeping the base recipe the same but get creative with the toppings!
  • Avocado – Want a creamier base packed with healthy fats? Add in 1/2 of an avocado to the mix! You may need to adjust the amount of liquid you use as the avocado will make it pretty thick!
  • Toppings – Go wild here! Granola, cacao nibs, shredded coconut, fresh fruit, coconut whipped cream… you really can’t go wrong!
