Recipe: Banana-Free Chocolate Collagen Smoothie Bowl
- Written By:Carla Contreras
Looking to skip bananas in your smoothie? Frozen riced cauliflower will give you all the creaminess with extra fiber and no sugar. This bowl is like dessert. Eat straight up or add toppings like granola, nuts, seeds, nut or seed butters, fresh or frozen fruit, coconut flakes, and mini chocolate chips or cacao nibs. You can also add 1 to 3 TBSP more plant-based milk to make a smoothie.
- 1-1/2 cups plant-based milk of choice
- 2 cups frozen riced cauliflower
- 2 scoops EVOLUTION_18 Relaxing Chocolate
- 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
- 2 Tbsp. cacao powder
- 1/16 tsp. salt
- 2 Tbsp. brewed coffee or espresso
- Garnish with toppings of choice
Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend on low for one minute and then high for an additional minute. This is super thick and may need to be stirred.
Divide into two bowls and top with garnishes of choice.
