Healthy Rocky Road Smoothie Bowl (Vegan)

Healthy Rocky Road Smoothie Bowl (Vegan) Recipe

By VegetaFull

🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes


1½ cups (15 oz. can / 425 grams) of black beans, drained and well rinsed

2 large ripe bananas

¼ cup (2 oz.) of unsweetened almond milk

1½ teaspoons of almond extract

¼ cup of raw cacao powder

1/8 teaspoon of fine sea salt

3 large medjool dates, pitted

1 cup of steamed and frozen cauliflower florets


1If using canned beans, drain and thoroughly rinse the beans to avoid a beany taste. One 15 oz. can is approximately 1½ cups. If you have cooked dried beans, measure out 1½ cups. For extra creaminess, thaw your cauliflower slightly before blending. Just let it sit on the counter while you gather your other ingredients.

2Add the black beans, bananas, and almond milk to a blender container followed by the almond extract, cacao powder, salt, dates, and cauliflower.

3Securely attach the lid to your container and blend until creamy, starting at low speed and working up to medium speed. You may have to stop and scrape down the sides of the container or use the tamper (with a Vitamix) to push the food down and around toward the blade. This will take about a minute or more, depending on what type of blender you are using.

4Scoop the creamy chocolatey mixture which will be the consistency of loose pudding into two or three bowls. Top with sliced almonds, coconut flakes, and cherries. Just for fun, plop a fresh cherry on top for that old-fashioned ice cream parlor look!

5Notes: Top with sliced almonds, coconut flakes, and dried cherries.
