Date Banana Smoothie Bowl with Blueberries

When I make smoothie bowls, I usually get more excited by what’s on top than what’s in the base. It’s like toppings on salad: I want to eat all the good stuff first, but I force myself not to because then I’m just left with the lettuce.

In the case of this bowl, though, I only had eyes for the base. I got inspiration from a smoothie bowl recipe I saw on Instagram, but I put my own spin on it. I threw half a frozen banana, some dates, almond milk, almond butter, maple syrup and vanilla yogurt into a blender and let it do its thing.

I knew that I’d hit on something good when I was more excited about the smoothie than the chocolate on top. I have a feeling this is a smoothie bowl combo I’ll be returning to again and again.

Here’s a song to get your weekend started on the right foot.

Blend all the ingredients in a blender on high until smooth. Pour into a bowl and top with toasted almonds, blueberries, cacao nibs and dark chocolate. Enjoy!
