I’ve been obsessed with breakfast bowls lately! They are such a simple way to combine so many flavours into one delicious bowl – and then you have the best excuse to load up on all your favourite toppings. I’ve been eating tons of oatmeal bowls and rice pudding bowls¬† sprinkled with my favourite fresh fruits, crunchy granola, chopped nuts, drizzles of homemade jam… the toppings are the best part, really ūüėČ

But for this recipe, the toppings definitely come second. This Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl tastes like DESSERT in a bowl. The first time I made this recipe and dunked a spoon in my blender to give it a taste, I actually¬†audibly breathed, “OHMYGOD” and forced a spoonful into J’s mouth so he could taste it too.

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl tastes like a Reese's peanut butter cup in a bowl - but is so healthy! Try it for breakfast or a healthy dessert.

The very best part about this Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl is that it tastes like a treat, but is so HEALTHY! The base is frozen bananas, mixed with a little almond milk, peanut butter, cocoa powder, dates for sweetness, and chia seeds for thickness. And all those healthy, whole ingredients really make me smile.

Everything¬†gets popped into your blender, blended until smooth, poured (or scooped if yours is really thick!) into bowls, and topped with more crunchy peanuts, banana slices, and chocolate chips if you’re feeling naughty.

I mean, who wouldn’t want to start their day with chocolate?!

Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 2 frozen bananas (see note)
  • ⅓ - ½ cup almond milk (any milk works)
  • 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (cacao powder also works)
  • 2 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • chopped peanuts, for garnish
  • extra chia seeds, for garnish
  • semi-sweet chocolate chips, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients to a blender. Start with ⅓ cup of milk and blend on high until smooth. You may need to add additional milk (up to ½ cup), depending on how large your bananas are, and how powerful your blender is.
  2. When ingredients are smooth and desired thickness is reached, pour or scoop out smoothie into a bowl. Top with chopped peanuts, chia seeds, and chocolate chips.
Notes
Bananas may be frozen whole, but if your blender is not very powerful, I recommend slicing bananas before freezing them. If you freeze whole bananas,let them thaw for 5 minutes before attempting to peel them.
