Healthy & Yummy Banana & Cacao Nibs Smoothie Bowl For Breakfast That Tastes Like Dessert


A delicious smoothie bowl that's packed with nutrients, is rich and creamy and tastes as decadent as a dessert. A perfect meal to start the day.


I love smoothie bowls, as they are not only delicious and simple to put together, but with the right combination of toppings, it can be a nutrition powerhouse that everyone will enjoy.

This Banana and Cacao Nibs Smoothie has become one of my favorites. Its made with organic frozen bananas, peaches, and berries. The added antioxidant-rich cacao nibs give this smoothie the taste of a chocolatey treat. I love playing around with various toppings with this smoothie, but the toppings I've used in this recipe are my favorite so far.

Bananas are high in potassium and are a rich source of protein, calcium, vitamin B6, and dietary fiber. They have zero fat and cholesterol. Bananas make the best base for a creamy smoothie and make it naturally sweet without any added sugar or natural sweeteners. Make sure you use frozen bananas for the ultimate creamy and sweet smoothie.

Berries are packed with antioxidants that nourish your body with vitality. They are also low in calories and high in Vitamin C. Peaches are also high in vitamin C, are a rich source of vitamin A, B-carotene and minerals.

As for cacao, they are dubbed as a superfood and have become a major hit in the health circles recently. You should not confuse cocoa and cacao, because the former is processed and with very low nutrition factor, while the latter is packed with nutrients.

Cacao comes from the seed of an Amazonian fruit tree and is considered one of the highest antioxidant foods on the planet. Cacao nibs are nature's chocolate chips made from pure cacao beans - completely raw with a deep chocolate flavor and very nutrient-dense. In fact, cacao is actually one of nature’s richest dietary sources of magnesium and is also high in iron, manganese, and chromium and is also extremely high in anandamide.

They also contain plant-based protein, good fats and healthy carbs, and can improve cardiovascular health, build strong bones, are a natural aphrodisiac, and can elevate your mood. The alkaloid content in cacao, according to herbalist and holistic nutritionist Rachelle Robinett, interacts with different neurotransmitters in our body and helps us feel good.

When buying your cacao nibs, make sure it is certified organic. Non-organic cacao is treated heavily with toxic pesticides and fumigation chemicals and may contain genetically modified (GMO) products.

I have used Essential Living USDA certified cacao nibs, but you can use any other brand easily available near you like Navitas Organics Raw Cacao Nibs.

This one is packed with so many good-for-you ingredients, and the best part is that it basically tastes like dessert for breakfast. I love when that happens!
