Blueberry PB Smoothie Bowl
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (I used almond breeze unsweetened original almond milk)
- 1 oz vanilla protein powder (I use optimum nutrition performance whey)
- 2 tbsp powdered peanut butter (I use the brand pbfit organic)
- 1 cup frozen blueberries (I use the signature select brand)
- 2.5 oz or about 3/4 large frozen banana
- Cinnamon, to taste (I usually add a few generous shakes)
- 1 tbsp pecan pieces
- 2 tbsp granola (I use O Organics oats and honey granola)
- 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
1. The night before you make your smoothie bowl, peel your banana. Chop it into 4 even chunks then freeze in a plastic zip lock bag overnight. This recipe doesn’t require a full frozen banana but they hold well in the freezer.
2. When you’re ready to make your smoothie bowl, blend together all the base ingredients in a blender.
3. Pour your base into a large bowl. The smoothie should be a bit thick so use a spoon to scoop out the rest if needed.
4. Finally, add your toppings to your bowl. Eat with a spoon and enjoy!
- This recipe is made using powdered peanut butter. This is a great alternative to the real deal because it has more protein, less fat, and about 1/3 of the calories!
- If you don’t like the thickness of the base, add more almond milk to thin it out.
- The nutritional information will be different depending on what brands of ingredients you use.
- If you don’t like the toppings, you can also try different varieties of seeds, nuts, granola, and fresh fruits. This will change the calorie count.
- The protein powder adds a nice sweetness but if you want a bit more, you can add 1 or 2 tsp of pure maple syrup.
- The base is only 348 calories so if you want a lower calorie count, you can change or omit the toppings.
