I set out to make a Keto Diet Friendly avocado based smoothie bowl for you, however, the banana in this recipe totally wipes out that idea. I was going to replace my banana with my favorite natural sweetener instead, which I’ll do next time for sure, but had one little banana left and my little boys were about to brawl for it. So this mama used it up, fast! Also, I needed some fiber in my diet on this particular day. Long ramble aside, the banana addition is delicious. But if you’re strict Keto vs modified Keto (like me), nix the ‘nana and add your favorite sweetener instead.
The clear star of this breakfast bowl is the spinach, although my frozen bananas do come up as a close second. I have a quick question. Do you freeze your bananas, too? I have a tip for you, if you want to start using frozen bananas in food bowls, but HATE thawing them out. My method of thawing is FAST and easy. I will put the browned banana in my stove, peel intact. I’ll turn the stove on, setting it to 350 degrees. The banana warms with the stove and as soon as your stove is preheated, grab the banana. It’s still cold to the touch, but peels and breaks into smaller parts quite easily.
Are you kidding me right now? Avocado may just be the most neutral fruit around, adapting to it’s food bowl neighbors’ flavors and providing a rich, smooth consistency.
Before I dive into just how amazing this tiny little green fruit is, I need to confess something totally non-recipe-related. Bare with me, this is just what I do…
I have an intense sweet tooth. It’s so strong, in fact, that I would often turn to very unhealthy candy or store bought cake-like desserts and BINGE EAT in order to escape the chaotic, stressful environment I am often in.
