Easy Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl
Smoothie bowls are the thing for breakfast in our household lately. They are always fun, filling and nutritious. This peanut butter smoothie bowl is easy to make and fun to add any toppings you like to it. The added protein is a total plus and gives it that rich and creamy taste. If you don’t like adding protein to your smoothie you can certainly skip it.
What fruits go with peanut butter?
If you are making a peanut butter smoothie then I would say bananas would be my go-to fruit. As far as snack options, peanut butter tastes great with many fruits like apples, bananas, and strawberries. Peanut butter also tastes great with celery and carrots if you want to have it with some veggies instead of fruits to keep the calories on the low side.
Can you use overripe bananas in smoothies
I would say absolutely. Over-ripe bananas are in fact ideal to use in smoothies. The only thing you would have to be cautious about is not adding any additional sweeteners to your smoothie like honey. Also, over riped bananas taste a bit different than a normal yellow banana. not in a bad way, but they have their unique intense taste. They are very sweet and should make your smoothie sweet enough especially if you are making a smoothie with berries.
What can I put in a smoothie to thicken it
In order to thicken your smoothie, you have a few options. Always try using frozen fruits like frozen bananas and berries. This automatcally makes your smoothie thick. Don’t have frozen fruits, use some ice but keep in mind when the ice starts melting and makes the smoothi a bit watery. Using frozen fruits is ideal which is what I did for my peanut butter smoothie bowl recipe. Making a green smoothie? Try adding avocados to make it thicker. You can also add things like flaxseed, whey protein, silken tofu, yogurt, and oatmeal.
