Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl

The trick to making a smoothie into a bowl is blending until you have a texture closer to soft serve than to a traditional smoothie. For this bowl, I used Greek yogurt, frozen bananas and ice to create a satisfying bowl that will leave you full for hours. If you're in the camp that thinks peanut butter tastes better with a little chocolate, add in a tablespoon or two of cocoa powder and top the bowl off with a generous handful of cacao nibs.
