Creamy coffee protein smoothie bowl

It’s just been the London Coffee Festival last weekend, so I’ve been feeling really rather inspired Although I’ve been trying to reduce my coffee consumption ever so slightly, I love the flavour that it gives to desserts and sweet treats and have been experimenting adding it into a lot more of my recipes recently. I’ve found that it works really well in smoothies, raw desserts and definitely in banana ice-cream! This is a kind of cross between a mousse and smoothie bowl- so perfect now that the weather’s starting to get a bit warmer! The natural sweetness of the banana creates a delicious contrast against the strong, rich undertones from the coffee, creating a truly indulgent tasting treat, that’s actually packed with simple, wholesome ingredients! 

Another thing that I love about recipes like this is that they take next to no time to prepare and make.. and they taste like you’re tucking into a really decadent dessert! You also don’t need to go out and source a whole host of rare and unusual ingredients either; most, if not all of the ingredients in here are things that I already have in my kitchen. Something else that I love about these kinds of breakfasts/snacks/desserts is.. the toppings! Decorating the smoothie bowl is possibly the most exciting part of the dish! My favourite toppings are without a doubt; berries, some sort of nut butter (of course) and coconut chips! I love the slightly sour, fruity kick from the berries, creamy nut butter and the crunch of the coconut chips!
