While the weather may not be quite warm enough to feel like we are relaxing in a tropical location (even if our imaginations are pretty good!), this refreshing and decadent smoothie bowl will more than likely do the trick of putting you right on the beach with the sun warming your shoulders. Or lazing in a hammock. Or lounging on a beach chair. All of the above, really! From Life of Coco, a chocolate smoothie bowl DIY tutorial to whip up at home and enjoy!

What You Will Need:

• 1 1/2 frozen bananas

• 1 scoop chocolate protein powder

• 1/2 tablespoon ground flaxseeds

• 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder

• 1/3 cup soy milk

Step One

Blend, blend, blend! I use a food processor because I find it keeps it thick. The key is patience!

Step Two

Pour blended mixture into your favourite bowl (which is, of course, a recycled coconut bowl from Life of Coco!).

Step Three

Top with strawberries, Oreos, granola, cacao nibs, and a whole load of crunchy peanut butter! And… enjoy!
