Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In addition to getting your metabolism started, breakfast is the foundation which you build your day upon. Coincidentally, breakfast tends to be the meal adults skip the most. Which really is a bummer, considering that taking those few extra minutes in the morning to make breakfast can turn your entire day around. Luckily, I’m going to teach you how to make a matcha breakfast bowl.
The nutritional properties of yogurt pair perfectly with matcha. Yogurt helps support your digestive health, while matcha green tea powder pumps your system full of antioxidants and other goodies that amp up your immune system. The natural caffeine in matcha green tea helps to kick start your energy, while L-theanine (an amino acid found naturally in matcha) reduces physical and mental stress. Which means you’re feeling better, thinking better, AND eating better.
Now before you pull out your “I don’t have enough time” excuses, this matcha recipe takes less than five minutes to prepare and is light, refreshing, and pleasant to the eye. Plus, you’re getting all the benefits of matcha green tea powder in a delicious recipe that could easily be confused with dessert.
You can even omit the granola and drink it as a smoothie on your way to work.

Consider this basic recipe your starting point. Granola is just the beginning. Try adding fresh fruit or walnuts to your matcha breakfast bowl to pack an even bigger punch into your matcha-full morning.
If you’re looking for a little more protein in your breakfast, use Greek yogurt. On average, there are about 10 grams of protein per 100 grams of Greek yogurt. Which means if you’re on a 2,000-calories-a-day diet, you’re getting 20 percent of your daily protein in one sitting.
On the other hand, adding a little chocolate granola to this matcha breakfast bowl is the perfect way to avoid the temptation of dessert while still satisfying your sweet tooth.
