Chocolate Banana Date Smoothie Bowl

This recipe is long overdue. My friend Dori asked for it last week, but I kept putting off writing about it. I have a few excuses, including going out of town to Cleveland and wanting to write about a bunch of other recipes, first. But whatever.

ANYWAY. This recipe was inspired by my friend Carly, who makes a frequent appearance on this blog and told me about a delicious smoothie bowl that she made a week ago. It had banana, dates, coconut Icelandic yogurt, almond butter, cacao powder.

The timing worked out well because I just brought back some dates from San Francisco. I blended everything together, topped the bowl with shredded coconut, toasted almonds, sliced bananas and cacao nibs and called it a day.

And oh, what a great day it was.

Here’s a song that reminds me of this bowl.

Chocolate Banana Date Smoothie Bowl (from me, to you)

Ingredients

1 banana
1 handful of dates
1/2 cup coconut yogurt (I used Siggi’s 2%)
1 tbsp unsweetened cacao powder
1 tsp of honey or agave, or more to taste
1 tsp almond butter
sliced banana, toasted almonds, cacao nibs and shredded coconut for topping

Directions

Blend everything in a blender on high until smoothie. Pour into a bowl and top with sliced banana, toasted almonds, cacao nibs and shredded coconut. You can even drizzle some almond butter on top…I just didn’t think of it at the time.
