Chocolate Almond Butter Smoothie Bowl
This smoothie bowl is so easy to make and will be ready in 5 minutes max!
What you’ll need
2 large frozen bananas
1/4 cup almond butter
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
3 – 4 ice cubes
I call for almond butter in this recipe, but if you prefer peanut, sunflower, or cashew butter, etc., by all means use your favorite type of nut butter. Feel free to use creamy or chunky if you like.
Looking to add even more protein? You may like to add Silk brands Protein & Nut Milk which would add an extra 10 grams of protein if used in this recipe (just know it does have a small amount of added sugar). Alternately, adding a scoop of protein powder would be great, just be sure to add a tad more milk, starting with just a splash or two.
Put Your Smoothie Together
Start by adding your frozen bananas to the blender. Add in a few ice cubes, cocoa, nut butter and milk. Blend until smooth. Serve as a smoothie bowl, as shown here, or enjoy the more traditional smoothie in a glass with a straw (preferably a wide straw). Either way, you can add a few additional toppings for added flavor and texture. Granola, sliced bananas, cacao nibs and chopped almonds are perfect toppings!
And there you have it, a dairy free chocolate almond butter smoothie with no added sugars – made easy, healthy and blissfully delicious!
