But the best part, is that it’s actually perfect for any ol’ day! It comes together in under 5 minutes and you can customize the toppings to your liking. So, who’s ready for a Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie Bowl?!
What is a Smoothie Bowl?
If you can make a smoothie, you can make a smoothie bowl. There really isn’t much difference except the vessel you serve it in – glass vs. bowl – and the utensil you use to get it in your mouth – straw vs. spoon. (Is a straw considered a utensil? We’ll just say it is). If you like your smoothies on the thinner side, you may want to thicken it up it for bowl status. What really makes a smoothie bowl different from a smoothie are the toppings! In this Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie Bowl, I went with fresh strawberries, coconut flakes, sliced almonds, and dark chocolate shavings.
I know I told you up above that the best part of this recipe is that it works for any day of the week, not just today’s holiday, but truly the best part is that it’s all for you! This recipe serves just one! Of course, you could double it up and serve two if you wish, but I’m giving you permission to allow yourself to enjoy a little something just for you. You deserve it!
Dark Chocolate Shavings
You see those beautiful little curls of dark chocolate? Yeah, those aren’t optional. 🙂 Without them, we would just have a Strawberry Smoothie Bowl. Which is actually delicious in itself, but come on! It’s Valentine’s Day – we need our chocolate fix! A vegetable peeler and a good quality dark chocolate bar is all you need to make those cute little chocolate curls. But but but, chocolate chips would work fine in a pinch as well.

This dairy free bowl of goodness is creamy, thick, delicious, and decadent. It tastes like dessert, but go ahead and indulge because it’s actually healthy! It has protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. It’s also, gluten free, oil free, and sugar free – sweetened only with fruit. Who’s ready for Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie Bowl?
