Peanut Butter – Banana – Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

It’s the little things that can make or break your morning: your favourite song on the radio, a good hair day or catching all green lights to work. So, at least for me, taking a few extra minutes to make an aesthetically pleasing breakfast can put you on track for a great day – because everything tastes better when it looks good. Whether it’s to post on instagram or just for yourself, this breakfast is healthy and filling while feeling like a treat. And gearing up for a few days of 40 degree humidity, it’ll be a refreshing part of your morning before the rush (and heat) of life sets in.

1 frozen banana

4 tbsp non-dairy/dairy milk (I used cashew milk)

1 tbsp peanut butter

1 tbsp cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

Ice

Chia seeds

Coconut flakes

Blueberries

  1. Blend the frozen banana with 2 tbsp milk in a blender on low speed until it is smooth and creamy. (You can use fresh bananas but it will give the smoothie a thinner consistency)
