This quick and easy, chocolate mint smoothie bowl is ready in minutes and is sure to impress with its simple, vibrant toppings.

Chocolate Mint Smoothie Bowl

This week I’m doing something a little different on the blog. I dare say it’s even a little crazy. Since Valentine’s Day is next week, it got me thinking about what I was going to work on for a recipe. After compiling a list of ideas, my indecisiveness got the better of me and I was unable to narrow down my list beyond 5 recipes. So, I’m posting 5 recipes this week. Yes, FIVE!

If you need help planning your Valentine’s Day menu, stay tuned this week for sweet and savory recipes to make your day more special next week. If you’re like me and don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, but like cooking and eating good food, you should also stay tuned because lets face it, you don’t need a special occasion to eat heart shaped chocolates.

Let’s kick off day 1 with this chocolate mint smoothie bowl. Who wouldn’t love a creamy, chocolaty, smoothie bowl served to them first thing in the morning? Bonus points if you serve it to your significant other in bed.

You may have seen a number of smoothie bowls out there (especially if you frequent Instagram) that appear to have taken all morning to prepare, only to be inhaled within minutes, leaving that beautiful piece of artwork to be nothing more than a delicious memory. As much as I love staring at those stunning bowls, I wanted to take a more minimalistic approach and create something just as eye catching with a fraction of the effort.

Chocolate Mint Smoothie Bowl

This smoothie bowl is so quick and easy to prepare. The frozen banana and avocado give you the perfect creamy consistency and the touch of almond butter really enhances the chocolate flavor. The combination of raspberries and mint make a great garnish as they resemble roses poking up from the chocolaty ground.

Stay tuned this week as the Valentine’s Day theme week continues!

Total Time

Servings: 2
Ingredients
Smoothie Bowl
  • 4 ripe Bananas frozen in small pieces
  • 1 cup Almond Milk or milk of choice
  • Β½ Avocado
  • β…› cup Almond Butter
  • β…› cup Cocoa Powder

Instructions
  1. Combine all smoothie bowl ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. If using a blender, you may have to shut it off and stir the mixture around with a spoon and blend again until incorporated. You can also add more milk if you want to thin it out. I find it easiest to use a food processor.
  2. Divide mixture between two bowls and add toppings. Eat immediately.

This looks awesome! I love chocolate avocado pudding, so this is very similar! I don’t usually have mint on hand until the summer so I’m going to try this with a drop of mint extract! Definitely pinning this for later.

I imagine the banana would tone down the richness that can come with chocolate avocado pudding. I like a little nut butter in my smoothies, so I’m sure I’d like this, too!
