I mentioned Coconut Bowls, as a sustainable brand that I love supporting, in my post How To Save The Planet by Shopping. Before I even purchased my coconut bowl, I loved stalking their instagram page for smoothie bowl recipes. A smoothie bowl is a classic smoothie with a thicker consistency, making it ideal to eat with a spoon. This recipe is my go to, because it only requires 4 ingredients and I usually already have them laying around.
- 2 Frozen bananas
- 2 heaped spoonfuls of peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice)
- a splash of coconut milk (or preferred milk)
- 1tsp Vanilla Extract
The great thing about this recipe is that it easily adaptable. You can swap the peanut butter for another nut butter of your choice, for example almond butter would work perfectly. Additionally, you could use regular milk or any type of plant based milk in the place of coconut milk. That’s just my personal preference. Even the vanilla extract is not essential, I just have a sweet tooth.
You simply add all the ingredients into your blender or food processor and blend together until mixed completely. I always freeze my bananas is small slices to make it easier to blend. If you’re finding it difficult, just add more milk but it will make the smoothie less thick.
Toppings for your smoothie bowl are almost as important as the smoothie. I usually top this bowl with chocolate chips and coconut flakes. For other bowls I like to use fruits like bananas or berries as a refreshing topping.
As a sucker for the Pinterest life, I always serve my smoothie bowls in my original coconut bowl and buddha spoon set. If you’re interested in getting one of your own I have a discount code (09CA2A8C) or you can shop directly through this link. I am not sponsored by them, though I wish I was, I just genuinely love the company.
