How to Make Dessert Smoothie Bowls

While many smoothie bowls, or acai bowls are based around fruit, yogurt, and nuts or
seeds, there are some that are better for dessert. These are still going to contain some
healthy ingredients, so feel free to have them for breakfast, lunch, or dessert!

Go With a Classic Chocolate and Peanut Butter Combination

It doesn’t get much better than chocolate and peanut butter combined! These
ingredients together are not only amazing with a morning smoothie that uses bananas
and yogurt, but they can also be the way to get a delicious and filling smoothie bowl.
There are many ways to use these ingredients for a dessert smoothie bowl, from the
type of peanut butter you use to how you get the chocolate in there. The bulk of the
smoothie can be a mixture of frozen banana, yogurt, and your preferred type of milk.

For chocolate, you can use raw cacao powder, cacao nibs, or chocolate-flavored protein
powder. You can then add in your favorite type of peanut butter or even another type of
nut butter. For toppings, slivered almonds, cacao nibs, and peanut butter slices are all
great to include.

Make Your Own Healthy Caramel

There are two main ways to use caramel in a dessert smoothie: you can use real
caramel or caramel sauce to drizzle on top, or you can look for a healthier option. If this
smoothie bowl is simply another way to have a yummy dessert, go ahead and use your
favorite type of caramel. It can be added inside the smoothie bowl or just drizzled on
top. For some healthier alternatives, you can either make your own with dates, maple
syrup, and coconut milk, or you can use something like caramel-flavored yogurt in the
smoothie bowl to get that flavor you’re looking for.

Choose Dessert Toppings

The last way to turn a typical smoothie bowl into one that is perfect for dessert is by
choosing your toppings carefully. Instead of just topping it with berries and granola,
think of more dessert-type toppings. This might be a drizzle of peanut butter or caramel,
using chocolate sauce, or having cacao nibs or chocolate chips on top. You can also go
with nuts if you prefer them on your desserts, such as almond slivers, or even add some
coconut shavings for a healthier sweet taste. Maple syrup is also really amazing on
some of these sweeter smoothie bowls.
