In the Buff Smoothie Bowl
I just can't get enough of this creamy, monochrome smoothie bowl!
Packed with protein and healthy fats, it keeps me going all morning long, and its subtle, earthy flavours and thick texture are the perfect base for loading on all kinds of toppings.
2 to 2 1/2 cups (500 to 625 mL)
For the smoothie bowl:
1 to 1 1/4 cups (250 to 310 mL) almond milk, as needed
1/4 cup (40 g) packed avocado
1 large frozen banana, broken into chunks*
1 tablespoon (12 g) chia seeds
1 heaping tablespoon (12 g) hemp hearts
1 scoop (25 g or 1/4 cup) unflavoured protein powder (optional)**
2 teaspoons (10 mL) almond butter
1 to 2 pitted Medjool dates, to taste
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 ice cubes, or as desired
The Perfect Granola, Grain-Free Pumpkin Spice Granola Clusters, or granola of choice
Fresh fruit (sliced banana, berries, etc.)
Hemp hearts and/or toasted sliced almonds
Add 1 cup (250 mL) of almond milk into a high-speed blender, followed by the rest of the ingredients.
Blend until smooth. If necessary, add more milk to get the blender going.
Pour into a bowl, and add your desired toppings. Serve immediately and enjoy with a spoon!
* Be sure to use a large frozen banana or the texture of the smoothie bowl won't be thick enough.
