The weather has warmed up over here in Richmond and smoothie bowls are back. If we’re being honest, I was still eating them in the winter, but it meant I’d have to grab a blanket so I didn’t shiver while I was eating it. Warm weather is a little more conducive to smoothie bowls. This one is a combination of my favorite things: chocolate + peanut butter + bananas. Plus it’s packed with protein to refuel you after a morning workout!
If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you probably noticed that I don’t typically use dairy milk, I generally use nut milk. The one complaint I hear is that nut milks is that they don’t have as much protein as a glass of skim milk. That used to be true… but Silk just introduced a new line of protein nut milks! It’s made with cashews, almonds, and plant-based protein. There is no soy in it and they have two different flavors: Vanilla Protein & Nutmilk Almond Cashewmilk & Pea Protein and 2g Sugar Protein & Nutmilk Almond Cashewmilk & Pea Protein
It’s packed with the goodness of almonds and creaminess of cashews! Perfect for smoothie bowls, cereal bowls, or straight up in a glass. Each 1 cup serving as 10g of plant-based protein! Plus they’re free of dairy, soy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg and MSG. YES.
Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie Bowl
- Prep Time: 5 mins
- Total Time: 5 mins
- Yield: 1
- 4-6 large ice cubes
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp peanut butter (divided)
- 1 banana (divided)
- 1/2 cup Silk Protein Nut Milk
- Optional toppings: chia seeds, hemp seeds, strawberries, etc.
- In a blender, combine the ice cubes, cocoa powder, 1 tsp of peanut butter, 1/2 of the banana, and the Silk protein nut milk.
- Blend until smooth, then pour into a bowl.
- Top with the rest of the peanut butter, the other 1/2 of the banana, plus any other toppings you like! I used chia seeds and hemp seeds.
If you’re having trouble finding the milk, check in the dairy section by the regular milks. They actually sell it at quite a few Walmart stores, in the grocery section with the rest of the dairy.
I used the Silk Vanilla Protein & Nutmilk Almond Cashewmilk & Pea Protein but either one would be good in this recipe! With the protein from the milk and the peanut butter, you really don’t even need to add protein powder to this smoothie!
Alex always jokes that it looks like I’m eating ice cream for breakfast… which isn’t too far off! 😉 It tastes so creamy and delicious! Give your next smoothie bowl a boost of protein with one of those Silk milks!
