I love the flavor combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and banana – otherwise known as chunky monkey. But there is no funny monkey business with this chunky monkey smoothie bowl, it is just plain good.
Sometimes you just want chocolate for breakfast! Pairing it with peanut butter and bananas into a smoothie bowl just makes sense, removes any guilt – if there was any, and is a very satisfying delicious, dare I say it – even good for you breakfast. They say chocolate has antioxidants; it certainly has pick me up, feel good endorphins. Peanut butter packs in some protein and bananas are loaded with potassium. Topping this chunky monkey smoothie bowl off with fresh fruits – I enjoyed blackberries, mangos, and more bananas as my toppings – certainly raises the healthy bar a little more. Good for you granola and chia seeds toppings is another bonus.
