We've all probably dreamed of it: a gluten free and vegan breakfast that's good for you but tastes like dessert. Thanks to this Chocolate Superfood Smoothie Bowl, though, that dream can actually become a reality. Just imagine: a rich, thick and creamy chocolate smoothie, paired with crunchy gluten free granola, juicy berries, creamy nut butter and a healthy chocolate magic shell for good measure. I won't say this tastes exactly like ice cream...but this vegan smoothie bowl is pretty darn close! And, even better? It's packed with hidden veggies and superfoods so you really can eat it for breakfast every day. (Like I actually have been doing, on-and-off, for over a year).

  • Ingredients: 1 ripe banana, chopped and frozen
    Handful of strawberries, frozen
    1 small zucchini, chopped (and optionally frozen)
    Handful of spinach or other leafy greens
    1 TBSP chia seeds
    1 spoonful of cacao powder (adjust to taste; I like about 1 tsp)
    1/2 tsp maca powder
    Liberal shake of turmeric, cinnamon and vanilla extract
    Enough liquid to blend (use a vanilla Superfood tea like Numi Organic's Amber Sun for a flavor and nutritional boost)
  • Instructions: Making this chocolate smoothie bowl is as easy as layering the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blending! For best results, I add the liquid, spices, chia seeds and fresh fruit (if any) before adding the frozen portions into my blender. I also keep my liquid to a minimal for the thickest smoothie bowl possible. For a more drinkable consistency, simply add more liquid!

    One last tip: if you don't have a powerful blender to make this vegan smoothie bowl, you can also blend the ingredients fresh (versus frozen) and chill your smoothie bowl in the freezer until solidified.

  • Serves: 1

  • Top 8 allergens?: gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, fish-free, shellfish-free, nut-free, peanut-free
  • Active/prep time: 0-15 minutes
  • Total time (inc active/prep): 15-30 minutes
  • Serving suggestions: Once you've gotten your creamy chocolate smoothie bowl made and waiting for you in the freezer, you can work on the smoothie bowl toppings. Personally, I'm addicted to different textures in my smoothies. So, I top my Superfood Chocolate Smoothie Bowl with juicy berries, crunchy homemade vegan granola, and creamy sunflower butter.
