If you like to have a healthy and oh so chocolatey snack in your balanced meal rotation, this recipe is for you. It comes with plant-based protein, healthy fats and lots of fiber to make your belly happy. It is a delicious chocolate and nut combination thanks to nourishing ingredients like the organic hemp products from MEDIHEMP. For this recipe, I used their organic protein powder with cacao and their organic hemp nuts that are a perfect match. The best part? It can be prepared ahead and is ready for you to take on the go with you.

  • drizzle of peanut butter

  • chopped peanuts

  • MEDIHEMP Hemp Nuts

  • fresh or dried banana slices

  • granola

Tips and substitutions for this recipe

  • When freezing the bananas, cut them into slices and place them in a freezer bag next to each other for easy blending.

  • I mostly have sliced bananas prepared in the freezer. They don’t take up much space. When I want a smoothie bowl, it is ready in no time.

  • You can use a different protein powder to keep the protein intake high in this smoothie bowl. If not using protein powder, you can skip it and opt for 1-2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder to get the chocolate flavour.

  • You can also skip the maple syrup entirely. You can still have some sweetness when using ripe bananas. The riper the bananas, the sweeter they will taste.

  • Fill the smoothie bowl in a sealable container to take it on to go. If not eaten right away, store in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
