Recipe: Chocolate banana smoothie bowl

If you’ve seen my chocolate banana peanut butter smoothie recipe, then you will understand how this recipe came about. I loved that smoothie so much, I turned it into a lighter smoothie bowl. Pretty much, smoothie bowls are a thicker in consistency version of a smoothie that you can eat from a bowl with various toppings and that makes it a bit more filling. Plus it’s a lot of fun! 🙂

I have a whole post about smoothie bowls if you are interested. I also have an acai bowl recipe for you to try out.

This one is my go-to nowadays when I want something really sweet and similar to ice cream. Try it out if you are a chocolate lover like me!



1 frozen banana

1 tbsp raw cacao powder

1 tsp cocoa powder

3 dried, pitted dates

1/2 tbsp chia seeds

3/4 cup milk of your choice (I normally use almond)


1. Put all the ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until incorporated. If it is too thick to blend – add milk accordingly.

2. Pour into a bowl and serve with toppings of your choice. I normally opt for dried coconut, goji berries, blueberries, strawberries and cacao nibs.

enjoy! 🙂
