High protein chocolate smoothie bowl

I love chocolate and lately I have been trying to incorporate it even on some savory recipes. Granted I am not using the sweet varieties but the darkest chocolate I can find. I prepared this high protein chocolate smoothie bowl as an after school snack on Friday and my kids couldn’t get enough of it.

Smoothie bowls tend to be on bit thicker than regular smoothies, or at least that is how I make them, otherwise all my toppings sink to the bottom.

Smoothie bowls are a great way to start the day or even to have as a snack. The variations are endless and on this one I used things I had on hand. We are loving hemp hearts right now. Then I added some chia seeds, cacao nibs and fresh fruit that I always have on hand.

Truly the sky is the limit when it comes to making smoothie bowls. Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner I figure I can make something that is healthy, easy and quick.

As some of you know, I don’t have much time on my hands lately. In 4 months my life will be way better and have a switch for the best since I will be graduating from Physician Assistant school and be able to continue with my normal life. Being a mom, work and carry on with my life more or less.

Anyways, I have another healthy, quick, dessert that I made over the weekend that I want to post very soon. I always make double the batch whenever I am baking or cooking so that we can have it for several days. Not necessarily concurrent days but at least another time throughout the week so that it doesn’t seem to repetitive that whe are eating the same thing over and over.

Anyways, start making your own smoothie bowls. I know once you start you won’t be able to stop. So healthy, good and easy.

Enjoy!

  12. I have never tried making overnight oats, but my girls love oatmeal in the morning. This recipe is going to be a wonderful surprise for them because. Thank you!

  13. This looks great, but I don’t think I have all my oats straight. Are rolled oats the same as “old fashioned” oats? And if not, can you used the “old-fashioned”? Thanks.

    • Sam, it is probably the maple in it.  I am not a fan of maple and strawberries.  Just omit the maple. It will still be sweet and wonderful!

  17. I just made these with my 3 year old and she wanted a bowl before we even put them in the fridge overnight. She ate all that I gave her and is excited for the morning. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  18. Would steel cut oats make this recipes any different?

  19. If you add a grated green apple to the mix, it’s even healthier and you won’t need the maple syrup as a sweetener

  20. Would steel cut oats work?

  21. I have used oat groats & even buckwheat groats instead of oats in my overnight oats recipes & I like the more chewy texture so steel cut should work…you just have to chew a bit more. :)

  22. Miriam these are actually heavenly! I made these last night…super quick and easy! use rice malt instead of maple as none left. my husband and I both chomped on them this morning….slightly warmed with a sprinkling of omega seeds and raw honey! Thank you for sharing xx

  23. Does it have to be a glass container?

  24. Is it okay to separate the recipe Into six different servings before putting it in the fridge overnight?

  28. Looks awesome! Do the frozen strawberries need to be thawed out before pureeing?
