Banana, choc-nut smoothie bowl

This smoothie or smoothie bowl is a great combination of flavour, protein, fat and carbs. Try it to kick off your morning, or as a pre-workout afternoon snack.




  • 1 frozen banana (sliced)
  • One big scoop of protein powder (about 20g)
  • ½ cup high protein greek yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter (or preferred nut butter)
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 ice cubes
  • 1/8c chilled water
  • Toppings of your choice, I love toasted coconut, cacao nibs, goji berries


Throw everything into a blender and blend until a consistency you like, pour into a glass or bowl, top with your chosen additions.

I like a really cold smoothie bowl so I place it in the freezer for 15 minutes before eating.

Serves 2
