Chocolate Nut Butter Smoothie Bowl
- 1 medium banana, peeled (or not), sliced, and frozen

- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 T sun butter

- 1 tsp. vanilla extract (alcohol free)
Blend all ingredients in a high-powered smoothie (I use my Vitamix for these). Add additional milk to desired consistency.
Bowl it. Top it.
- Sliced almonds or sunflower seeds
- raw cacao nibs
- Purely Elizabeth Coconut-Cashew Grain-Free Granola
Flip: If this is breakfast or anything but a dessert or treat, add greens. Just do. No one eats too many vegetables. Especially if you choose a mild source of greens like spinach, or chard and you won’t even know they’re there. But your body will.
The thing about chocolate
So, I’ll just say it. Chocolate is always appropriate. And paired with nut butter it’s one of my favorite treats. For Easter, my parents gave me a chocolate bunny and a jar of peanut butter. It was tradition. My friends and I used to indulge with chocolate bars dipped in.. you guessed it, peanut butter.
So now, a little more savvy to the food sensitivity peanut butter can cause (definitely true for me) and no longer thinking lounging around eating chocolate and nut butter is such a smart idea, I can still satisfy the taste without feeling like a lump.
I probably knew then it wasn’t the best thing to do. But it didn’t stop me! As a result of those childhood memories though I’m forever smitten on chocolate and nut butter.
