Yield: 1 smoothie bowl

Smoothie bowls are a fun way to serve soft-serve–like smoothies that are packed with vegetables, fruits, and lean protein from dairy. This refreshing treat is packed with antioxidants from colorful produce and a bright green tea powder called “matcha.” Matcha green tea powder is a high-quality, extra-fine ground green tea with immune-boosting, stress-fighting properties. It’s a great ingredient to try in the New Year!

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium banana, diced into coins and frozen for at least 1 hour
  • 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup loosely packed baby spinach
  • 1 tsp matcha powder
  • Water and/or ice as needed to reach desired consistency
  • 1/2 cup diced strawberries
  • 1/3 cup diced kiwi
  • 1 tbsp toasted unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 tsp chia seeds

Instructions:

  1. Combine the first 4 ingredients in a high-powered blender (like a Ninja or Vitamix) or food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add water or ice as needed until your mixture is the texture of soft- serve ice cream.
  2. Decorate your smoothie bowl with toppings of kiwi, strawberries, toasted coconut, and chia seeds in whatever design suits your fancy. Serve right away!

Falafel
By Chef Ryan Callahan
Beans are rich in protein and iron, making falafel an excellent substitute for meat. Done correctly, falafel is dense and heavily spiced. Try this recipe for a savory and aromatic treat!
