Smoothie Bowls and Healthy Smoothies are saviors for anyone who strives to be healthy but has too much to do in the morning with too little time. If you’re not a morning person and wake up a little too late, this dairy free smoothie bowl recipe is for you. If you’re a mama juggling hangry kids and all the get ready for all the school-daycare-camp-work things, this dairy free smoothie bowl recipe is for you. Or if you’re all about your morning workout / meditation but also want to fuel your body with something good, this dairy free smoothie bowl recipe is for you. I’ve made this version – Dairy Free Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie Bowl – so many mornings and keep it feeling fresh with different toppings every time.
A few health shout outs to some of my chosen smoothie bowl ingredients:
- Bananas are an awesome source of potassium
- Natural peanut butter is a protein rich source (but is low in essential amino acid methionine)
- Hemp hearts are exceptionally rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3), as well as a great source of Vitamin E.
- Chia seeds are loaded with antioxidants, fiber, and protein.
- Flax Seeds are rich in Omega-3 fats, dietary fiber, and high quality protein.

PEANUT BUTTER BANANA SMOOTHIE BOWL INSTRUCTIONS
Add frozen bananas, peanut butter, chia seeds, flaxseed meal, vanilla, cinnamon, maple syrup, and oat milk into the blender.
Blend all ingredients until mixture looks smooth and creamy. For thicker smoothie bowls, use minimal oat or non dairy milk. And if your blender is having trouble blending the frozen ingredients, add more liquid/non dairy milk until the blender is able to mix all ingredients.
Transfer the smoothie into an individual bowl.
Toddler Tip: Serve your peanut butter banana smoothie in a wide cup to minimize the mess!
When ready to serve, top with your favorite granola, dried pineapple, toasted coconut, a few banana slices, peanut butter, hemp hearts, berries, bee pollen, honey, and anything else you love.
