Tips

If you have overripe bananas with brown spots that you are tempted to toss away, do not. These bananas are at their sweetest stage and will lend a wonderful natural sweetness to your smoothie bowl. Just peel and slice the bananas, pop them into a freezer bag, and you will have the perfect smoothie ingredient ready whenever you need it.

Tips

Choose a high-quality cocoa powder as it is the star of the show. This will ensure your smoothie bowl has a rich, deep chocolate flavour to complement all your toppings. If you are looking for an even more indulgent option, you can use raw cacao powder, which is less processed with a rich dark chocolate flavour.

Sweetness from banana and tanginess from Greek yogurt

The natural sweetness of the banana forms a perfect balance with the rich bitterness of cocoa, creating a chocolatey bliss that is not overly sweet. Additionally, the banana lends a creamy, thick texture to the bowl, making it feel even more decadent.

Adding to this exquisite fusion is the tanginess of Greek yogurt. It is like the unexpected guest who turns the party up a notch. It brings a slight tang that cuts through the sweetness, adding a refreshing twist. Plus, it amps up the creaminess of the bowl, so each spoonful is out-of-this-world good!

Soft raspberries and banana

Enjoy the gentle, mellow bananas and soft raspberries as you dig into your smoothie bowl. They light up the richness of the chocolate and provide a soft texture that contrasts beautifully with the smooth base.

The banana slices bring a soft, creamy sweetness that pairs beautifully with the robust cocoa, and the fresh raspberries provide a vibrant colour and a tangy sweetness perfect for the deep, rich chocolate flavour.

Crunch from granola, cacao nibs, and pomegranate seeds

The granola, cacao nibs, and pomegranate seeds are the elements that bring the much-needed crunch to this bowl of bliss.
