When I was little I loved reading the adventures of Curious George and his friend in the yellow hat, and would wish that I could one day have a friend like George :). I don’t think I’ll be getting a pet monkey anytime soon, so instead I thought I would make a smoothie bowl inspired by those adorable baby bananas that I found at Whole Foods. This Chocolate Banana Pudding bowl has the best texture, and only gets better over time – setting into a consistency similar to a mix between chocolate mousse and pudding. It’s creamy, dreamy, and perfect for either a decadent breakfast, or even dessert.
I turned mine into George by piping coconut yogurt mixed with just a tad of cacao powder on top of the smoothie for his face. Then I added chia seeds for the mouth, coconut yogurt, and then set dark chocolate for his eyes and nose, and covered apple slices with the cacao/yogurt mixture for his ears (the piece of “hair” that’s sticking up is dark chocolate with the smoothie bowl covering it). You could also turn this recipe into a chocolate nice cream by blending just the bananas and cacao powder together (with a touch of coconut milk to get everything going).
