Chocolate Silk Smoothie Bowl

When I took a big spoonful of this smoothie, I could hardly believe that it was really healthy. If you’re into all things chocolaty, thick, and creamy, this bowl is for you. It has become a favorite of mine and I am so excited to be sharing it with you all.

The inspiration to create this smoothie bowl came from an avocado-based chocolate mouse that I had at a vegan restaurant a few weeks ago. While I had been skeptical of the avocado in a dessert, I was amazed by how thick and creamy it was. Thus, motivation came to create a healthy version or this dessert with more ingredients to make up a huge, frozen bowl.

 

The ingredients in this smoothie really make the texture perfect. Japanese yams are naturally dry and starchy, bananas are naturally sweet, cauliflower is a great thickener, and avocado is creamy. Friends, this smoothie might sound like a lot of effort, but I promise it is 100% worth it.

(I went through 3 cheep blenders over the course of one semester in college. no joke).
