What's great about it

This is a power packed smoothie that I regularly enjoy for breakfast after a morning workout. It's light on the palate and easy to drink without weighing you down, so you're powered up and energised for a busy day ahead. I'm a huge fan of smoothies and if the right ingredients are used, they make a perfect meal and can fill you up for hours. I've used coconut water to make this recipe as it's extremely refreshing and helps to hydrate your body quickly. I often add a frozen banana to make my smoothies creamier and you can also use frozen pineapple chunks or mango that marries perfectly with matcha.
