Smoothie bowls are my new favorite breakfast. Aside from being the prettiest thing since cronuts, they are super tasty and just like froyo, you get to do your own toppings! I mean, can you believe this bowl came together in 10 minutes? Simply toss everything into a blender and serve. Want more fiber? Toss in some kale. More protein? A scoop of nut butter.
As for toppings, you can use berries, bananas, nuts, coconut flakes, chia seeds, hemp seeds, granola… the sky’s the limit.
What makes this smoothie bowl so special is that it’s chocolate… for breakfast. That’s right, friends. Chocolate! A little while ago I was contacted by ALOHA, a company that’s bridging the gap between busy lifestyles and healthy eating. Their goal is to provide food products that incorporate more nutrition into your daily eating habits.
As for this baking blogger, I’m constantly trying to get the nutrition I need amongst a literal ton of baked goods. And as much as I love sugar, a balanced diet is something that is incredibly important to me. So with my natural cravings for sweet things (and chocolate), I jumped at the idea to create a healthy recipe for ALOHA.
Friends, meet Superfood Chocolate Smoothie Bowl. It’s packed with vitamins and nutrients, from potassium to Vitamin K. I added a packet of ALOHA’s Daily Good Greens blend, which provides over 500% of your daily Vitamin D, contains only 50 calories per pouch, and is loaded with spirulina, which helps to support liver and kidney functions.
Plus, when blended into the smoothie, you can’t even taste a difference. All you get is a delicious chocolatey goodness. Your tastebuds will rejoice and your hips will thank you 🙂
On top of the smoothie I opted to chop up ALOHA’s Superfood Chocolate, which is no ordinary chocolate bar. It’s made with the Daily Good Greens Chocolate Blend, sneaking in all those vitamins and nutrients. I mean, give me the option to sprinkle chocolate on my breakfast and I’ll say yes 100% of the time, but nutrition-packed chocolate? Yes 110%.
This smoothie would also be delicious with some toasted peanuts on top. Really whatever floats your boat and keeps you full & satisfied.
What’s in this chocolate smoothie bowl:
There is so much goodness packed into this smoothie bowl recipe. The main ingredients for this chocolate smoothie bowl are:
Almond milk — If you prefer thicker smoothies / smoothie bowls, use less almond milk than the recipe calls for. And for thinner smoothies, add more. Feel free to use whichever non-dairy milk you like best!
Raw honey — Just a few teaspoons of honey sweetens up this smoothie bowl. If you’re plant-based, you can use agave or pure maple syrup instead.
Avocado — Don’t worry, you don’t taste the avocado at all in this chocolate smoothie bowl. It’s a key ingredient, though, as it’s what makes this smoothie so rich and creamy. Plus, the healthy fats in the avocado will fill you up until lunchtime.
Banana — For a super sweet smoothie bowl, use a ripe or even spotted banana. For something less sweet, use a banana that’s still slightly green. You can also freeze the banana the night before for a creamier smoothie!
Berries — I used blackberries in my smoothie bowl, but you can use whatever you have on hand. The berries jazz up the taste and texture a bit and are an easy way to mix up your breakfast.
Cocoa powder — What would this chocolate smoothie bowl be without a healthy dose of cocoa powder?
