Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie Bowls
When it comes to making smoothie bowls, anything goes. This recipe could easily be tweaked. For instance, you could use cow's milk or almond milk instead of the soymilk; add some Greek yogurt to boost the protein even more; or swap out the peanut butter for another nut butter.
1 cup plain or vanilla soymilk
2 frozen bananas
3 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon chia seeds
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Optional Toppers: O¬shaped whole grain cereal, crushed Graham crackers, chopped peanuts, chia seeds, coconut chips, sliced banana
Place the soymilk, bananas, peanut butter, cocoa, chia seeds, and vanilla in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into individual bowls and garnish with your choice of optional toppers.
