Vegan Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl

Vegan Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl


From one smoothie recipe to another. Except this time it's a smoothie bowl. I totally can get behind the hype of smoothie bowl. Often times a smoothie doesn't quite feel like a meal because it's a drink. So a smoothie bowl is essentially the same, but has a "bite" to it.

This was my first attempt at making a smoothie bowl, and it turned out quite successfully! The layering was fun to do and gave the smoothie bowl much more taste. I haven't eaten many smoothie bowls so I guess this one turned out fine.

Am I team smoothie or team smoothie bowl? I would say ... team smoothie! Because the smoothie bowl (because of the frozen fruits) was quite cold to eat, and a smoothie is more room temperature. Also, I like the idea of drinking a meal. The number one reason why I drink smoothies, is because it saves time! Great for when you're in a hurry and still want to eat healthy.

Ingredients:
- 1 banana frozen
- 1½ cups frozen strawberries
- ½ cup Silk Unsweetened Coconut Milk

Instructions:
- Combine frozen banana, frozen strawberries, and coconut milk in a blender. Puree until completely
smooth - the mixture should be thick. Add a touch more liquid if necessary to get it to blend completely smooth.
- Transfer to a bowl and add toppings as desired. Enjoy!


For toppings I used: shredded coconut flakes, flax seed, sliced strawberries & bananas, and dark chocolate (vegan).
