Due to other commitments, I have been MIA-ing from the kitchen and am not experimenting with food as much as I would like to. I still do prepare weekday meals but it's usually a quick fix such as stir-fry or soup.
I am ashamed to also admit that I only upload a recipe post once a month if I have the luxury of time. I will, try, to amend this habit and post consistently - after all, I still enjoy cooking and I would like to share what sort of meals I prepare at home.
During the end of financial season clearance sale, I have convinced myself that I needed a clear glass that can make smoothies (aka baby food to some) look divine to carnivores. And so, I bought myself a couple of Bodum glasses which came to $22. Not cheap but hopefully it'll serve its purpose well.
These days, I cannot live without a glass of freshly prepared fruit/veggie smoothie - it makes me feel extremely good on the inside. Placebo effect? Don't think so.
Without further ado, here's a jazzed up version of my green smoothie, this time round with a matcha acai mix. I love how each layer has its own unique texture and flavour - mixing the bubbly, slightly bitter matcha with the tart vanilla bean flavoured greek yoghurt followed by crunchy granola and green smoothie was a party on it's own!
Handful of baby spinach
20ml of soy milk
Blitz the above ingredients together
1/4 tsp matcha powder
10ml warm water
3-4 tbsp soy milk
1 tsp acai
Prepare matcha by whisking powder in warm water followed by soy milk. Add acai and refrigerate overnight.
Place granola layer on matcha acai layer, followed by sliced kiwi around the cup, greek yoghurt, green smoothie and sprinkle with granola.
