Chocolate-y soft serve that’s made from healthy whole foods? Yup. Only three ingredients? Yup. I know, I’ve got you hooked.
The recipe is super simple, really more of a method. But you can dress this smoothie bowl up or down, and customize it to your heart’s desire! I went for a Valentine’s Day dessert theme and topped them with decadent goodies.
Chocolate Dream Bowl
- frozen bananas
- cocao powder
- milk of your choice
- Toppings - see below for ideas
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 (start slow, you can always add more!).
Now, add in the smallest possible amount of your chosen milk. If you have a food processor (I use this one) or high speed blender. If you do add liquid, you want to add just enough liquid that you're able to blend the frozen bananas. Blend, and add more liquid as needed.
Serve up your smoothie bowl into chilled bowls and add your toppings
My BF is super into chocolate, so I wanted to amp up the chocolatey goodness in my toppings. I used:
- Nature’s Path Organic Love Crunch granola in dark chocolate & red berries
- Some defrosted strawberries
- Toasted coconut flakes
- Green & Black’s chocolate
The options are endless. You can top yours with any sort of fruit, nut, seed, etc. If you’re at a loss for ideas, I suggest you take a look at #smoothiebowl.
- Prep your toppings before blending the smoothie so it doesn’t melt while prepping
- Put your serving bowl in the freezer to cool before adding the smoothie
Happy V-day. Or just happy Sunday, because I actually don’t really care that it’s Valentine’s day. I’m down to eat this nice cream bowl any day.
