Creamy Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

Creamy Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

Last week I was experimenting with different chocolate smoothie bowls using different ingredients like sweet potato, courgette and avocado. I realised that I haven’t even shared my favourite go-to chocolate smoothie bowl on my blog! I have featured it several times on my page but never actually posted the recipe! So I thought while I am still working on perfecting my banana free version I can share this one with you all. In this version, I like to add almond butter to make it extra creamy and I also like to add ground flax seeds for added healthy fats. I also make my smoothie bowls in a slightly different way to what I see other people doing because I used a food processor. This is for a couple reasons, firstly, it makes the smoothie bowl really fluffy and creamy and you don’t need to add too much liquid to get it to blend. Secondly, because I don’t own a high-speed blender! They are so expensive and not something that everyone has. I want to make my recipes assessable to as many people as possible by using basic equipment. My food processor is actually about 5 years old and still works perfectly. I would like to replace it with a Magimix in the future but for now its good enough!
