Coconut-Matcha Smoothie

Coconut-matcha smoothie.

Nourish Café & Market owners Kalle LeMone and Kimber Dean believe that every sunrise signals a fresh start. A haven for those who crave delicious nutrient-rich, unprocessed food, the downtown Columbia, Missouri, eatery boasts a menu free of gluten, soy, corn, refined sugar and preservatives. A gold mine of vitamins and minerals, this coconut-matcha smoothie – like all smoothies at Nourish – also packs a superfood punch that will help your body thrive.

“We use mostly organic ingredients in our smoothies, and every one has at least one superfood, [from matcha to bee pollen to turmeric]. [They] are meant to nourish and satiate without taking your blood sugar on a rollercoaster ride!” –Kalle LeMone

PRO TIP: If you’re looking for colorful add-ins for this smoothie, LeMone suggests spinach because it doesn’t have much taste or texture, but it adds much-needed nutrients.
