This Healthy Smoothie Bowl from TikTok Looks and Tastes Just Like Coffee Ice Cream
We're already pumped to wake up to THIS tomorrow morning.
Oh what a time to be alive, coffee fans! First came our collection of 12 breakfast recipes perfect for coffee lovers. Then Whipped Coffee Baked Oats burst onto the scene. And now, a 5-minute fast, refreshing and chocolate-flavored smoothie bowl is entering the caffeinated a.m. meal competition—and we're majorly intrigued.
"Ain't nobody got time to sit down for a full breakfast everyday! When I know I have a busy morning, I love to put all the ingredients of this Breakfast Coffee Smoothie in a blender at night, store it in the fridge, and then give it a whirl in the morning," she says in her blog post about her Breakfast Coffee Smoothies/Bowls.
Jawad also told us she likes to add instant coffee in her recipe for Chocolate Hazelnut Smoothie Bowls (that delicious-looking recipe pictured above) for a delicious morning pick-me-up. She also tops this version with chopped hazelnuts and chocolate chips for a dessert-like spin.
She explains that juggling a grab-and-go breakfast including a banana, granola bar and travel mug of coffee inspired her to combine all of those elements she loved into one dish. Just pop everything into a blender and give it a whirl in something like this Ninja Foodi Smoothie Bowl Maker and Nutrient Extractor (buy it: $99.99 on Amazon). While a scoop of vanilla protein powder is optional, it's a nice way to make this quick and smoothie bowl more of a meal than a snack.
"It's a delicious fix for my busy mornings," Juwad says as she scoops up a silky spoonful to conclude the TikTok how-to video. "So good!"
