I love breakfast. It’s the one meal of the day where sweet things like French toast, pancakes and waffles, are for some reason totally legit. No one questions you or your morals when you eat sweets for breakfast. But let’s be honest. I don’t think anyone really feels great after an 8 AM carb-load like that, and in my experience, when I start the day off with a little too much decadence, it can be hard to get back on track. That’s where the smoothie bowl comes into play pretty nicely.
The Ultimate Elvis Smoothie Bowl
I set out to make a sweet- themed breakfast that I can totally feel great about. Introducing my Chocolate Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie Bowl. Elvis would have died for this. Seriously, there are few flavour combinations that I crave more often than peanut butter, banana and chocolate.
I know it sounds crazy decadent, but it’s actually surprisingly healthy thanks to the protein-packed greek yogurt, antioxidant-loaded unsweetened cocoa powder and cocao nibs, protein and fibre rich peanuts and fibre-licious oats. LOVE THIS SMOOTHIE BOWL.
