Nice Cream Smoothie Bowl


Summer has always been my favorite season. Perhaps because I was born in the summer, or because I grew up in a nearly-tropical environment that felt like summer most of the year. Whatever the reason, I love this season and I love all of the food we get to eat during these hot months.

I'm celebrating the summer solstice and this heat wave by having "Nice Cream" for breakfast. Nice cream is similar to ice cream because it's frozen, creamy and delicious. But nice cream is kind to your body because it consists of only one ingredient! Bananas!

Last night, I chopped then froze two bananas. This morning, I put them in a food processor and processed until they congealed and were smooth and cream like ice cream. It really is that simple!

Put chopped, frozen bananas in a food processor.

Process until smooth and creamy

At this point, it's ready to eat! But, if you want a scoop-able ice cream, put it in a closed container in the freezer for a couple of hours.

To make this nice cream smoothie bowl, I added a dollop of melted chocolate, raspberries, chia seeds and coconut. This definitely feels more like dessert than breakfast!


2 bananas, previously chopped and frozen

To garnish: melted chocolate, raspberries, chia seeds and coconut


Put the bananas in a food processor and process until smooth and creamy.

Transfer the nice cream to a small bowl and garnish with a dollop of melted chocolate, raspberries, chia seeds and coconut.

Kale Kiwi Smoothie Bowl

Kale and Kiwi Smoothie Bowl Happy FriYAY everyone! I'm loading up on greens since with this smoothie bowl since Father's Day weekend will surely be indulgent with delicious food, drinks, and desserts!

If you have been following me, you know that I'm a smoothie addict. And there's nothing I love more than a smoothie packed with leafy greens like spinach, collard greens or kale.  I wanted to keep this green smoothie green, so I paired it with kiwi and pineapple, and topped it with some of my favorite go-to toppings: fresh berries, chia seeds, coconut and cacao nibs.  I hope you enjoy this recipe and have a wonderful weekend!

Total time:
Serves: 1 bowl
  • 1 medium ripe banana, previously frozen and chopped
  • 3 large kale leaves, rinsed

  • 1/4 cup water or almond milk
  • Fresh berries, chia seeds, coconut, cacao nibs and kiwi for garnish
  1. Blend the frozen banana, kiwi, pineapple and kale with the Greek yogurt and liquid until smooth. If the smoothie is not blending, add more liquid. However, smoothie bowls should be much thicker than regular smoothies. If your smoothie is too liquidy, blend in more frozen fruit or ice.
