Banana Berry Smoothie Bowl

Banana Berry Smoothie Bowl

Whenever you find a healthy recipe that tastes unhealthily good, you know it’s a winner! The first Banana Berry Smoothie Bowl that I made blew my mind. It was like eating super yummy ice cream. For breakfast. Yep, that’s right.

The key ingredient to these amazing bowls is frozen banana. Once you blend a frozen banana it gets this thick and creamy ice cream consistency which is just delicious. From this on, the variations are endless. You can really just add the fruits and flavours you like. I love to add berries, almond butter, and cinnamon and coconut to top it off. Not only does this taste really good, it makes the perfect post workout meal as well. Bananas are great for helping your muscles recover and to prevent cramps. Almond butter will provide you with some healthy fats and protein, and you could easily add protein powder to the mix as well. For some extra crunch, serve the Banana Berry Smoothie Bowl with homemade granola or nuts. You will love it!

Here is my favourite combination:

– 1 small ripe frozen banana, chopped into pieces
– 1/3 cup of (frozen) blueberries
– 1 tablespoon of almond butter
– 1 tablespoon of dried shredded coconut
– 1/2 tablespoon of vanilla pea protein
– 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
– 1/3 cup of water

Simply put all the ingredients in your blender and mix. You can always add more water if you think it’s too thick, or more banana if it’s not thick enough. Enjoy!
