German Chocolate Cake Smoothie Bowl

It is important to do things for yourself every day.  If you do not take care of yourself, then how can you take care of anyone else in your life, and if you are not happy, those around you will not be either.  I do things for myself everyday, alone for the enjoyment of it.  Going out for a run to clear my head, spending some time doing a little relaxing yoga, and preparing delicious things to eat that I can enjoy and savor slowly.  On my days off, it is essential that I make time for myself, and this German Chocolate Smoothie Bowl was part of that.  A girl can never say no to chocolate, and there is no need to.  Especially with this smoothie bowl.  I don't know why I thought of German chocolate cake when deciding what type of bowl to make for myself, but it sounded amazing, and it was. 

It was like German chocolate cake and a smoothie had a love child together.  All of the flavors of the cake in a healthful energizing smoothie plus a few extras that I like to add to my meals like hemp seed, flaxseed and chia seeds. I felt special while eating it and it was sinful tasting but left my body happy.  Take time for yourself today, you deserve it!

German Chocolate Cake Smoothie Bowl
Serves 1

3 large bananas
1 scoop raw chocolate protein powder (optional, I used Garden of Life brand)
1/4-1/2 cup raw hemp milk or coconut milk (depending on how liquidy you like it, I like mine thick so I add less)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 Tbsp raw cacao powder
1 Tbsp maca powder
stevia to taste (or your choice liquid raw sweetener)

sliced medjool date
raw walnut pieces
raw cacao nibs
flaked dried coconut
chia seeds
ground flaxseed

For the smoothie, combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, using the tamper to press the mixture into the blades.  Pour into a bowl, and top with toppings (I used about 1 Tbsp of each).  Enjoy!
