Foodie Tuesdays: Peanut butter cup banana smoothie bowl!

Peace Soulstars,

I’ve been indulging in smoothie bowls lately and wanted to share my favorite thus far.   Above is my creation.  Not as artistic as some others you may have seen but I was in a rush.  Anyway,  you know how I love my chocolate banana smoothie so I tried it with peanut butter one day, loved it and from there I decided to make a smoothie bowl.  The smoothie came out thick like soft serve ice cream so thought I would add it to a bowl.  So, instead of drinking my smoothie I eat it just to switch things up a bit.   I love the chocolate and peanut butter combo in general but in this smoothie bowl it’s truly heaven in a bowl for my taste buds.   This time I added a tablespoon of peanut butter to the mix and the taste is similar to a Reese cup.  I think it’s safe to say that this smoothie bowl satisfies my reese cup cravings that I get from time to time.  So, I call it a peanut butter cup banana smoothie.

*Quick tip*:  For smoothie bowls try to add less liquid than you would for your usual smoothies.  It makes for a thicker consistency which you want because it won’t melt as fast.

Peanut butter cup smoothie bowl recipe:

2 frozen bananas (chopped)

2 tablespoons creamy organic peanut butter

1 tablespoon cacao powder

1/2 to 1 cup coconut milk

Blend well.  Pour contents into a bowl and add favorite toppings…Enjoy immediately!  As pictured above,  I used vanilla almond granola, sliced bananas, almonds, and chia seeds.  You can also add cacao nibs.

Love and Light,
