I’ve been a tad obsessed with smoothie bowls lately. If you’ve never had a smoothie bowl before, they’re exactly what they sound like! I always use frozen bananas as my base, add in any other frozen fruits I’m feeling, then get crazy with some toppings. ๐Ÿ™‚

The other day, Dj and I got home pretty late, so I didn’t want to eat anything too heavy for dinner. I decided to play around with a new combo for a smoothie bowl and it was AMAZING. Luckily, I thought to snap a picture before digging in, so while this post doesn’t have as many step by step pictures as my posts usually do, I can still share it!


Shopping List

  • 1-2 frozen bananas
  • 1/2 – 1 cup of frozen cherries
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Chia seeds
  • 4 chopped dates
  • Toasted muesli (I chose one with dried fruit + seeds)
  • 1 tablespoon PB2 powder

Recipe Guide

  1. In a food processor or blender (I swear by this one) pulse frozen bananas, cherries, and cocoa powder with about 1/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk [you want the texture to be pretty thick]
  2. Pour your smoothie mixture into a bowl and layer on your chia seeds, toastedย muesli, and chopped dates
  3. Prepare pb2 with water + drizzle over the top of the smoothie bowl
  4. Enjoy immediately !
