Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie Bowl
This post is sponsored by Silk. All opinions are mine.
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!
This peanut butter smoothie bowl is loaded with plant based protein! It’s the perfect breakfast for a busy day!
- 4–6 large ice cubes
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon 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.

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! P.S. If you want to make a gorgeous smoothie bowl like this one, check out my tips for making your smoothies thicker!
