Post workout meal or dessert – this peanut butter banana chocolate smoothie bowl works either way. With only four ingredients this recipe is super simple and super delicious. Seriously, it tastes like chocolate ice cream. Make it in less than 10 minutes and you’ve got a totally guilt-free and completely healthy meal. All that’s left is the toppings.
I’ve listed a few of my fav. toppings below, but feel free to top your peanut butter banana chocolate smoothie bowl however you’d like.
4 smoothie bowl toppings I love:
Hemp seeds – These have flavour and nutrition nailed down. They have a slight nutty taste plus they’re a great source of plant based protein and healthy fats.
Shredded coconut – It’s fair to say I’m a bit obsessed with pretty much anything coconut 😍 – but for good reason. It provides quick usable energy in the form of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). They bypass the regular digestive route that other fats take and head straight to the liver for energy. Make sure you choose unsweetened!
Raw cacao nibs – The perfect chocolate-y topping to add some crunch to your peanut butter banana chocolate smoothie bowl. Raw cacao nibs are simply broken up cacao beans AKA pure and healthy. They’re completely sugar free and a rich source of skin-loving antioxidants.
Buckwheat – Despite its name, this grain is totally wheat free and gluten free. You can eat it raw and sprouted, or toast it up. It’s great in trail mix, and perfect as a smoothie bowl topping. Buckwheat is high in fiber and rich in magnesium. Try adding it to homemade batches of granola too.

If you don’t have protein powder on hand – no worries! Just substitute it for 1-2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder. If you want to add some protein in, add two tablespoons of hemp seeds.
