This chocolate smoothie bowl is versatile. Either to enjoy as breakfast or dessert, but also when you are overcome by desire but do not want to reach for chocolate directly.
The banana, the riper the better by the way, and the dates make this bowl a healthy treat. At best, you should freeze the banana for at least an hour beforehand, even better overnight, so that the consistency becomes even creamier. The perfect meal when the temperature exceeds 88 °F (30 °C) again!
I always have frozen bananas in my freezer because they are versatile and, especially for smoothies, almost essential. The banana should be cut into pieces beforehand so that you can process it immediately.
I always store them in an airtight container and have them ready to hand in case I get hungry. But a frozen banana is still not a must, you can also eat it unfrozen!
Half of the avocado mixed with the (plant based) milk makes the consistency nice and creamy.
Did You Know? Raw Baking Cocoa as an Alternative To Conventional Cocoa
Raw baking cocoa tastes much more bitter and is naturally less sweet than conventional cocoa powder, but it contains many antioxidants, protects against cardiovascular diseases, ensures strong bones, can lower blood sugar levels and brings many, many more benefits. Therefore, raw baking cocoa as well as dark chocolate, the higher the cocoa content the better, is at the top of my list!
But now to the preparation, once again as simple as it gets: Cut the banana into pieces if necessary. Take the avocado out of its skin. Put all ingredients into a blender and mix on high speed for about 30 seconds. Et voilá!
Finally, put the mixture in a bowl and top as desired. I chose banana chips, cocoa nibs and hazelnut because I think they go great with the chocolate theme, but there your creativity is free rein. A little fruit would also be good, for example.
