Chocolatey Good Smoothie Bowl

Photograph by Shannon L. Buck, copyright 2017.

I’ve decided I love smoothie bowls! And, since I mentioned I’d be sharing more with you, I figure it’s about time I do so. One day I was craving chocolate, but did not want to go to the store for candy or a dessert item (I don’t keep that stuff in the house!). A smoothie would work just fine to satisfy that craving.


(For the smoothie)

1/2 of a banana

1/2 of a Granny Smith apple

6 slices of cucumber

1 tbsp protein powder

chocolate almond milk

(For the smoothie bowl)

1/2 of a Granny smith apple, chopped

1/2 of a banana, sliced

almond slivers or slices

  1. Put 1/2 each of a banana and a Granny Smith apple into the blender, along with the cucumber and protein powder.
  2. Add just enough almond milk to make a thick smoothie, less than for a regular one.
  3. Cover and pulse until well blended.
  4. Pour into a bowl.
  5. Add sliced banana and chopped apple to the bowl.
  6. Sprinkle the almonds over the top.
  7. Enjoy!


  • Use vanilla almond milk instead of chocolate. See which you like better.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with a vegetable-based juice.

Happy Day!
