Banana Bread Smoothie Bowl

Banana Bread Smoothie Bowl Recipe - made with frozen banana, almond milk, oats, almond butter, cinnamon, and vanilla extract

Eating my fruits and veggies is so much more enjoyable when they remind me of my favorite sweet treats. This creamy, cool, and sweet smoothie bowl has all the flavors of banana bread, but with a healthier roundup of ingredients. Here’s what’s inside: frozen banana, almond milk, oats, almond butter, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.

Oats in smoothies? I know. But trust me, they’re perfect. Oats add a grounding heft, giving the smoothie bowl a heartier, more filling (banana-bready) texture. But they also add fiber—and so does the almond butter, which is full of healthy fats, fiber, and protein. It bumps up the richness of the bowl, too. The star flavors, though, are the cinnamon spice and vanilla. They’re what give the smoothie that warm and toasty taste we associate with banana bread.

        If you don’t include the almonds in the topping, it only comes out to 5SP using the recipe builder. If you just put the stats into the calculator, it will be more because of the banana.

    Since you pour this in a bowl, is it the consistency like that of soup? Or oatmeal or cereal? It sounds wonderful but I am curious.
    Thanks Andie
