Banana Nut Smoothie Bowl

May 7, 2017

Happy Sunday y’all! It’s been a pretty hectic couple of days, and now that all the craziness has somewhat subsided, I’m completely exhausted and in need of a nice, long nap. A good solid 9 hours of sleep is all I really want! Nonetheless, I’ve still got tons of chores and things to do around the house. Because I’ve been so busy, this banana nut smoothie bowl has really been a life saver for me in the mornings, and a great afternoon snack for when I get home from school. I love throwing all of my ingredients in my Ninja the night before, refrigerating it, and it’s all ready to blend and go. When I have the time, I’ll pour it into a bowl and make it fancy with nuts and bananas. It’s creamy, energizing, and super duper healthy!

Banana Nut Smoothie Bowl | My Southern Sweet ToothI’ve been love love loving pumpkin seeds recently, and unsalted nuts in general! They’re a great snack for late-night homework runs and a great source of healthy fats. Plus, they’re crunchy and so yummy! I get a giant pack of unsalted nuts from Costco every now and then, and they last for months (because I’m usually the only one who’s eating them). If y’all want to check them out, I’ll link them here. I also featured those particular nuts in my road trip essentials post a while back!

Before I forget: the toppings I listed below in the recipe are just foods that I think pair perfectly with the nutty flavor of the smoothie. I included peanut butter (obviously, because what would one of my recipes be without peanut butter?), nuts, pumpkin seeds, bananas, and more. These are just my personal preferences, but you might want to add more fruit, or maybe completely omit the nuts. Feel free to add whatever toppings you’d like!

Mostly, I’m obsessed with how pretty this smoothie bowl turned out! In addition to making food taste good, making it all nice and pretty is one of the things I love about food photography. Isn’t this smoothie bowl just adorable??

    Yum!! This looks delicious. I’m pumped about this recipe because I am allergic to packaged oatmeal and the fake flavouring chemicals etc. I love adding seed to my oats and sometimes pb + j!

      It’s a smoothie bowl, not oatmeal. Thanks, though!

    I don’t really like nuts, but that bowl definitely does look delicious! Super healthy.

    As a super picky eater, this actually looks and sounds delicious! I get so sick of drinking smoothies, the idea of eating a bowl of one with nuts in it sounds really good :)
