I admitted my Almond Butter and dark chocolate obsession. I am also addicted to smoothie bowls. My go-to breakfast for sure. Quick, easy, and healthy-while satisfying my sweet tooth. 

Must bowls have lots of sugar via fruit. I love those but wanted something filling yet low in sugar. But still creamy and indulgent.

Enter frozen cauliflower. I have been experimenting with replacing frozen bananas with cauliflower and it’s great. Still creamy but with less sugar and a nutritional boost of a  cruciferous vegetable. Win-Win.

Here is a recipe I found via Simply Quinoa and tweaked to my liking. Check out Alyssa’s site for great recipes. 

Dark Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened chocolate coconut milk
  • 1 cup spinach or kale
  • 2 Tablespoons cacao or cocoa powder 
  • 1/2 scoop Designer Whey Chocolate Protein Powder (works fine without this)
  • 1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 cup frozen cauliflower 
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries (cherries , strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or a combo)

Place in the order listed and blend until the consistency you like. If you don’t have a Blendtech(I have a refurbished one I love), Vitamix, or high powered blender, mix the liquid and greens together first and then add the other ingredients. I do this most of the time out of habit from owning a Magic Bullet and then Ninja and like how it eliminates any small particles of greens. 

Pour into a bowl and top with your favorite fruit, chia seeds granola, etc. My bowl had gluten-free granola with cacao nibs, peanut butter, and frozen blueberries. Yummy!
