This is my go-to Chocolate Smoothie. It is thick, creamy and satisfies that chocolate craving. Using frozen bananas is crucial as they act as such a great thickener, making it more of a thick-shake consistency that I love! Plus, you can load on the toppings without them sinking to the bottom.
Topping wise, smoothie bowls have no limits. I love to get creative and mix it up! This is extremely helpful if you’re like me and tend to get bored relatively easily. You could also enjoy this recipe as a regular smoothie, it is delicious both ways. I hope you enjoy it which ever way you try it.
Raw Choc-Coconut Smoothie Bowl
220g Banana, frozen in chunks
1 heaped Tbsp Cacao Powder
1-2 Medjool Dates, or 1 Tbsp sweetener of choice
1/2 Tbsp Coconut Butter or a Coconut Cacao Spread, (I like Mayvers Coconut, Almond & Cacao Spread)
1/2 tsp Vanilla Bean Powder or Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup cold Coconut Water, or Water
Toppings of choice: Fruit, Nuts, Nut Butters, Buckinis, etc.
Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into a bowl.
Add your toppings to the smoothie, I added Loving Earth Chocolate Buckinis, Fresh Raspberries & Shredded Coconut. Enjoy!
