Chocolate Peanut Butter Acai Powder Smoothie Bowl Recipe

They say that breakfast is the most important part of your day, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. I like to pack as much nutrition as possible into my breakfast to power through busy days. This Chocolate Peanut Butter Acai Powder Smoothie Bowl is the perfect recipe for a satisfying breakfast.

Unlike traditional smoothies, smoothie bowls are unique because they have toppings which adds more texture. That also gives you more variety when creating a new recipe. For this one, the roasted peanuts and granola add some crunch. The chocolate chips and banana slices add a touch of sweet. Of course, you can always substitute a low sugar chocolate option that’s sweetened with Stevia (I prefer the Lily Dark Chocolate Chips).

The secret to packing some extra nutritional value into this recipe is the Acai Powder. The power is produced from a superfood berry that’s harvested from the Amazon rainforest. It’s an excellent source of vitamins A and C, plus it has calcium. It’s a natural antioxidant and energy booster – which is perfect as a Mom with two toddlers.

You might be wondering how a berry flavor pairs with chocolate and peanut butter, but the sweetness masks the tart berry flavor. It’s the perfect way to introduce yourself to the benefits of Acai Powder without the potent flavor. Besides, you don’t need much to enjoy the nutritional benefits it offers.

I love making this smoothie bowl a part of my morning routine – it fits in nicely to my runner’s diet.

Try to purchase organic and high quality ingredients, if it fits into your budget. You can opt for low-sugar chocolate options or substitute for a different nut butter. I prefer creamy classic peanut butter though. The ripe banana blend into the smoothie, while you slice fresh bananas for the topping.

Combine bananas, milk, yogurt, peanut butter, cocoa powder, acai powder and vanilla in a large blender or food processor.

Blend or process until smooth and creamy. To make the smoothie bowl thick, more like soft serve ice cream consistency and easier to eat with a spoon, be sure to freeze the yogurt, as well. That’s how I prefer it because it feels like a true treat.

Pour into a bowl and top with toppings. More toppings for your smoothie bowl include almonds, pecans, coconut, dried fruit, or other fresh fruits like strawberries, cherries, or blackberries. Get creative and have fun with it!
 
To make the peanut butter drizzle, scoop about 1 tablespoon peanut butter into a plastic bag. Zip closed. Microwave for 15-25 seconds until peanut butter is softened. Snip a small corner off the baggy and drizzle peanut butter over smoothie bowl. Serve the chocolate peanut butter acai powder smoothie bowl cold and serve immediately after making.
