Brain Power Matcha Berry Smoothie
Smoothies are a great way to pack a lot of nutrition into a cup. Try this version for a morning brain wake-me-up, or as an afternoon brain boost! Bustling with antioxidants, fibers, and healthy fats, this simple recipe will nourish your busy day. Soaking the walnuts makes them blend to a creamier texture and improve their digestibility. You can soak them overnight in a covered container in the fridge, so they will be ready in the morning.
1 cupfrozen mixed berries
1⁄2 cupcup walnuts, soaked for at least 15 minutes
1 cupfiltered water
1 tspmatcha powder
Drain the soaked walnuts and discard the water. In the cup of a high-speed blender, combine all ingredients. Blend on high until well combined. Adjust for water if needed by adding a few tablespoons more at a time. Serve immediately, or freeze in individual portions. Recipe by Fernanda Brusamolin, MS, CN, 2019. All right reserved.
