Choco-Banana Smoothie Bowl

Some days you just need a little something sweet. Especially when you’re 7 months pregnant. 🙂

I whipped up this Choco-Banana Smoothie Bowl the other day and HAD to share it with you. Be careful, you’ll want to eat one every day.

    How do you freeze the banana so the peel doesn’t stick to it?

    • Robin Long 5 years ago

      Great question! Peel the bananas, break them in half, then freeze them in a freezer bag for future use. 🙂

    It sounds delicious! Do you think I can substitute the banana for frozen berries? Thanks for sharing!

    • Robin Long 5 years ago

      I think you could! Banana makes it a little creamy but berries would probably taste great. I say give it a try! 🙂

    This is a great recipe. I love it and my kids love it too. Such a special treat!

    You don’t have to wait for bananas to over ripen before freezing. They are tasty when frozen at any time. I bought a bunch (pun intended) recently at $0.29 a pound and froze two big bags full!
