The Smoothie Bowl of Dreams

Healthy never looked so good.

Pick your frozen fruit, pick your veggies, add your juice and some protein if you fancy it. Throw it all together in a blender and bobs your uncle, you have the smoothie for your smoothie bowl. Then it’s all about making it look beautiful. Use anything from nuts to more fruit. Anything you want, you could even add chocolate shavings for a decadent and less healthy bowl.

Struggling for ideas or just can’t seem to get it right? Then why not check out a couple of recipes that I have been loving.

Chocolate Dream Smoothie Bowl By Plantily

I have possibly saved the best for last. This chocolate and banana smoothie bowl only have three ingredients and it tastes like an absolute dream. If you fancy something to curb those chocolate cravings then this is definitely the smoothie bowl for you.

INGREDIENTS x2

  • Frozen Bananas
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Milk of your choice

DIRECTTIONS

Cut up your frozen bananas, so they’ll blend more easily. Add them to your blender or food processor. Add in cocoa powder to taste (probably start slow, you can always add more!). Now, add in the smallest possible amount of your chosen milk. This is key if you want a thicker smoothie/nice cream. You want to add just enough liquid that you’re able to blend the frozen bananas. Blend, and add more liquid as needed.

TOPPINGS

  • Nature’s Path Organic Love Crunch granola in dark chocolate & red berries
  • Some defrosted strawberries
  • Toasted coconut flakes
  • Green & Black’s organic milk chocolate with chopped almonds
