Samoa Smoothie Bowl

20200310_163055Coconut…chocolate…caramel!  Those cookies that can create such a cravings, yet are full of restricted ingredients for many people.  Can a smoothie this decadent possibly be good for you?  Yes!

Unsweetened shredded coconut and coconut milk are full of healthy saturated fats.  The caramel-like sweetness of dates merges with deep chocolate protein powder to create that ooey-gooey girl scout cookie taste.  This smoothie offers a hefty dose of protein, healthy fats, a stealthy serving of veggies and a delicious taste!

Instead of a banana, frozen cauliflower lend frosty creaminess without added sugar.  I love this smoothie poured into a bowl and topped with cacao nibs and additional shredded coconut for a satisfying crunch.

Samoa Smoothie Bowl

1 c. frozen cauliflower

1/4 c. shredded, unsweetened coconut

1 serving chocolate protein powder (I like Nuzest Clean Lean Protein in Rich Chocolate)

2 dried dates

1/2 t. vanilla extract

3/4 c. full fat, canned coconut milk (plus more as needed)

Toppings: cacao nibs, shredded coconut, chopped dates

 

Place the frozen cauliflower, coconut, protein powder, vanilla, dates and coconut milk in a blender.  Blend on high until smooth and creamy.  Add more coconut milk if needed.  I like it thicker in a bowl, and more “drinkable” in a glass!  Pour into a tall glass or a bowl and top as desired.  Enjoy immediately!
