Today we are talking about two simple words that, when strung together, make up one pretty incredible thing. We’re talking about smoothie bowls. I repeat: SMOOTHIE. BOWLS. Have you tried them yet?? I’ll admit I was late to the smoothie bowl party. About three years late. And all I know now is that for about three years I could have been enjoying this magical smoothie in a bowl thing and instead I was missing out. So if you’re putting it off, don’t. Kick off your smoothie bowl love affair with this banana bread version, you will not regret it.
If you’re a little confused, because you don’t really “get” what a smoothie bowl is, let me tell you that it is pretty much exactly what it sounds like, serving a smoothie in a bowl instead of a glass BUT, instead of just slurping down that creamy goodness with a straw, you’re going to use a spoon because on top of all that creamy goodness is a whole slew of your favorite toppings to go with that particular smoothie’s flavor profile. In this case, I topped my banana smoothie with toasted walnuts, dark chocolate, fresh bananas, and honey. All of the things I love about banana bread but in a quick and easy to make breakfast I can whip up in about 5 minutes. It doesn’t get better than that!
