This peanut butter protein smoothie bowl is loaded with protein and even when topped with crunchy granola, it comes in under 400 calories!
Needless to say, there are a lot of recipes I feature on the blog that are not foods David and I are exactly eating every day. For example, as much as I would love it, this chocolate orange cake with pistachios is not sitting on our counter every other week. Nor do I make giant pots of New Mexican posole every month.
But smoothie bowls?? This is AT LEAST an every other day occurrence, if not every day. Love love love smoothie bowls. I did not even know they were a thing until friends took us to Nekter Juice Bar. I fell so in love with Nekter’s Peanut Butter Acai smoothie bowl that I went through several boxes of frozen acai making a copycat acai bowl. As delicious as they are, I needed a lighter version with more protein that I could use for a post-workout snack or a dessert. Enter: skinny peanut butter protein smoothie bowl. You can even make it another 100 calories lighter by dropping the peanut butter, but that is my favorite part!
There are all sorts of toppings you can use for protein smoothie bowls:
- dried fruit
- chia seeds
- chocolate chips
- coconut flakes
When my goal is a high protein snack, I just use 1/3 cup of homemade coconut granola–I use this granola because it has half the carbs of my go-to commercial granola. (And um, duh. Because it’s delicious!)
I also use this vegan protein powder just because it is my absolute favorite! It has a slight vanilla flavor but not overwhelming. And my smoothies don’t have that weird after taste that comes with whey protein powders. I love it, because I prefer that my protein smoothies don’t taste like protein smoothies…
Instead, I will take this icy cold bowl of delicious fruity-ness topped with crunchy coconut granola!!!
