I make a lot of smoothies, and to ensure that my smoothies are filling, I make sure they contain plenty of protein. Lately, I’ve been enjoying Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Powder. It blends smoothly so all you taste is the chocolate flavor. I love that it’s completely plant-based, and one serving contains 21g of protein. To round out this smoothie, I used Mooala Organic Plant-Based Almondmilk, Kite Hill Dairy Free Yogurt, a frozen banana, and almond butter. This smoothie, topped with an extra drizzle of almond butter, sliced almonds, and coconut flakes, is definitely a winner for sure!

I snagged all of these ingredients during the Plant-Based promotion at . Right now, they have great deals on plant-based products like 2 for $8 Kite Hill Dairy Free Yogurt, Orgain Protein Powder for $18.99 (16.3 oz), and $1 off Mooala Organic Almondmilk. It’s a great way to save some money while stocking up on good-for-you ingredients!

How to Make a Chocolate Almond Smoothie

Tips for Making a Thick Smoothie Bowl

The key to a thick smoothie bowl is to use frozen fruit. If your blender has trouble blending a frozen banana, slice a banana into coins, place the slices in a single layer on parchment paper, and freeze. Once frozen, you can transfer them to a freezer bag. Sliced banana is much easier for a blender to process, so you don’t have to add too much liquid. You can also add a little ice if you want to make this extra thick. You may need to stop the blender and use a rubber spatula to give the smoothie a quick stir to ensure even blending.

If you want to make a sippable smoothie, skip the ice and don’t freeze the banana. You’ll get a slightly thinner smoothie that is easier to drink if you’re on the go!

The Best Smoothie Bowl Toppings

I liked adding a drizzle of almond butter, chopped almonds, and shredded coconut on top. But you could also try adding fresh fruit like chopped strawberries or raspberries or a sprinkle of chia seeds. Pumpkin seeds can also be a delicious and healthy smoothie bowl topping if you’re looking for something new to try!
