Fall Focus Reset: Day 9

Fall Focus Reset: Day 9

Pistachio Protein Matcha Smoothie or Smoothie Bowl

(Focus Superblend)

Serves 1 • Paleo / Vegan + Dairy-free optional

This is the ultimate productivity smoothie. It’ll fuel your brain for the workday, power your workout, or help promote recovery after a good sweat sesh. With the perfect balance of protein, healthy fats, functional herbs + shrooms and a touch of natural sweetness, this nutrient-rich blend is the Swiss army pocket knife of smoothies. Don’t forget your choice of smoothie or smoothie bowl toppings. Not only do they add flavor and texture – they also ensure you “chew your smoothie” for better digestion!


  • 2 tbsp shelled pistachios*
  • ¾ cup coconut milk or other milk of choice (*use less milk for a thicker smoothie bowl)
  • ½ large banana (or 1 small), cut into 1” slices and frozen
  • ⅓ small avocado (~¼ cup), peeled + pitted
  • 1 serving (1.5 tsp) JOYÀ Focus Matcha Superblend
  • ½ tbsp hemp seeds OR 1 scoop plain/vanilla protein powder
  • ½ cup crushed ice
  • optional: collagen powder
  • optional toppings: cacao nibs, bee pollen, chopped nuts, seeds, dried coconut flakes, granola, fruit

Notes* Pistachios can be omitted or subbed with cashews.

How to

  1. In a small bowl, soak the pistachios in hot water while preparing the rest of your ingredients. Drain.
  2. Add all ingredients (except toppings) in the order listed to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and no chunks remain.
  3. Pour into a glass (or bowl for a smoothie bowl), optionally add toppings and enjoy!

Movement Practice 

We’re taking it to the chair today (that’s right – the chair can be a good thing!) as Lindsay guides us through three stretches to improve spine mobility and fight tension in the lower back and hips.
