Fall Focus Reset: Day 2

Fall Focus Reset: Day 2

Matcha Mint Chip Smoothie or Smoothie Bowl

(Focus Superblend)

Serves 1 • Paleo / Vegan optional / Dairy-free optional

This is the perfect smoothie to power your brain for the workday or your body for a workout. Chia seeds, banana and greens pack this smoothie with healthy omega-3 fats, fiber, protein, vitamins + minerals, and natural sweetness to keep you fueled and satiated. The Focus Superblend brings that vibrant matcha-green color, along with brain-boosting, stress-fighting, immune-balancing and energizing goodness. And finally, some mint and cacao nibs layer in that texture and flavor reminiscent of the classic, mint chip ice cream. 

Prefer to enjoy it as a smoothie bowl? Use less milk for a thicker consistency, and go wild with your choice of toppings!


  • ½ cup milk of choice (*use less milk for a thicker smoothie bowl)
  • ½ large banana (or 1 small), cut into 1” slices and frozen
  • 6-8 large mint leaves (or 3 drops peppermint extract)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 serving (1.5 tsp) JOYÀ Focus Matcha Superblend
