Never doubt the power of a smoothie bowl. It is not at all like a normal smoothie that you’ll drink out of a glass or through a straw. No, this is more reminiscent of ice cream. But for breakfast.

Servings: 1 bowl

Equipment:

Ingredients:

Smoothie bowl

Toppings

  • ½ Banana
  • 1 tbsp Granola
  • 1 tsp Chia seeds

Instructions:

Freeze the banana

  • Starting the night before you want to make the smoothie bowl, slice your banana and spread it out into a container or freezer bag. Make sure to keep a thin layer of banana so it doesn't freeze into large chunks.
  • Place the sliced banana into the freezer and allow it to freeze overnight.

Blend the smoothie bowl

  • Place your frozen banana and all of the other smoothie bowl ingredients into a high-powered blender
  • Start by pulsing together the ingredients a few times until the mix starts to blend together
  • Continue blending the mix until it starts to form a thick liquid that resembles ice cream. It should be a light chocolatey brown colour.
  • If your blender is a little bit old or not as powerful as you'd like, take a few moments to mix everything around inside the blender using a spatula before blending again. If it really struggles, add a splash more plant-based milk.
  • Use a rubber spatula to decant the smoothie mix into your favourite breakfast bowl before adding your desired smoothie bowl toppings

Topping ideas

With this peanut chocolate smoothie bowl, I like to keep my toppings simple – just a sliced banana and a sprinkle of granola. Here is a full list of really tasty smoothie bowl toppings you can try:

  • Granola: a good quality granola adds a nice crunch to the chocolate smoothie bowl
  • Nuts & seeds: try this breakfast topper by Wellnoa or sprinkle on some chia seeds
  • Fruit: I like to use sliced banana but you can play around with other fruit toppings like mango

    I’m a bit confused by this recipe. Where are the peanuts?!

      Hi Mel, thank you for leaving a comment. I have no idea how I left the peanut off the recipe card, oops! I have just added it in.
