With warm days come cool treats :) my warm morning oatmeal is getting traded in for the best delicious smoothie bowls, and I’m not mad about it. Smoothie bowls are one of my favorite things ever, and they’re one “trendy” food item that I’ll always defend.
Some people say you should just drink your smoothie, but they’re missing the most important things about a smoothie bowl:
First, texture: smoothie bowls > smoothies because they’re THICK and creamy and almost ice cream-like. Any way that I can have “ice cream” for breakfast is a win in my book.
And of course, TOPPINGS! I live for toppings. I get so bored with things that have no texture, so adding crunchy bits is key for me!
This almond chocolate coconut smoothie bowl is a new fave for sure, thanks to all the goodness both IN and ON it. Making up the super creamy smoothie part, we’ve got bananas, almond butter, cacao powder, and Silk’s new almond-based Dark Chocolate Coconut Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative.
I tasted the new almond yogurt from Silk at Expo and promptly fell in love – it’s so tasty, and since dairy has been giving me some trouble lately, it’s a new staple in my fridge. My cousin also recently found out he was dairy-free, and my aunt stocked up on these too. She mentioned to me that she’s been eating them all the time too, and is totally in love. It makes the bowl super creamy and adds a touch of chocolate coconut flavor 😍
I also love loading up my smoothie bowls with superfood goodness! I added collagen powder, maca powder, and chia seeds to this one. These are optional, but if you’ve got them around, I recommend you toss them in for an extra nutrition boost.
Now, back to toppings. I always go a little crazy here, because texture is our friend. This one’s got banana slices, flaked coconut, chocolate granola, chia seeds, dark chocolate-covered chia seeds, and of course, a big drizzle of almond butter. A drizzle of coconut butter would be good too. Go crazy with whatever you’ve got on hand! This is the fun part :)
And…stop, admire your work, and then devour it immediately. This chocolatey, coconutty smoothie bowl tastes a bit like dessert for breakfast, and that’s always a good thing in my book. It’s lusciously creamy and loaded up with so much goodness – you’re gonna love this one! Enjoy.

Collagen is not vegan, so skip this to keep the recipe vegan.
I’m loving the warm weather, too! It’s a reminder that summer is officially on the way, woohoo! Such a pretty smoothie bowl, Rachel! I love the combination of flavors. Such a great way to start the day!
Thanks so very much, Gayle!

So very true – thanks so much, Sarah!!
This looks amazing! Omg, it’s like dessert for breakfast!
Thanks so much Tori!
This smoothie bowl looks so irresistibly good!
You make the best smoothie bowls, Rachel! This looks like such a fun breakfast. I’m going to have to look for that almond milk yogurt!
Love this Rachel! Saw you on the FeedFeed stories yesterday too! Really well done. You were awesome!
Thank you so very much, Debs!!
It’s been so so nice out that cold thick smoothies have been on my mind repeatedly! Unfortunately I’m doing Whole30 right now, but when I’m done, you bet I’ll blend up this chocolatey- coconutty goodness!
There are honestly never too many smoothies toppings…different tastes and textures are this girl’s best friends!
Looks good but why do the ingredients in the directions differ from the ingredients on the ingredients list?
Whoops, mistake on my part! Copied the wrong instructions here, thanks for catching that. It’s fixed now.
HOW ON EARTH DID YOU MAKE THAT LOOK SO SO SO SO SO pretty!! I can’t get over it!
You’re too kind! Thank you so much.
This smoothie bowl looks like the perfect way to start the day! Love that drizzle of almond butter!
Chocolate and coconut is one of my fave combos! And YES to the thick consistency of smoothie bowls! Love it!
This is gorgeous! I’m all about taking the time to thoroughly enjoy a smoothie bowl..it just makes for such a pleasurable smoothie experience. I could go for a chocolate-almond-coconut combo any ol’ day and I’m digging the maca and collagen infusion here. Healthy bliss right here!
It totally is healthy bliss! Thanks for the love, Julia!
Such a dreamy smoothie bowl – I’m so ready to devour this beauty!
oh Yum! Looks absolutely delicious!
Heads up…the bowl will not be vegan if you add the recommended collagen to it. Collagen (gelatin, basically) is made from the connective tissue and bones of animals. The collagen pictured says “grass fed, pasture raised” right on the package.
Hi Madeleine, I do have a note under the recipe stating it’s not vegan with the collagen. Thanks for pointing that out!
