Chocolate “Peanut Butter” Protein Smoothie Bowl

I can’t force this smoothie bowl on you, but if I could, I would make you eat/drink every last bite of it. Because it’s effing delicious. No joke, I constantly crave it now. Problem is, I only have so many frozen bananas in my freezer…meaning none. Get your life together, Juli. But back to the point, if you are a fan of smoothies, you’re gonna me a hella fan of this because you get the smoothie texture but then you get crunchy and sweet and salty, all at the same time. And you get to eat it with a spoon. I recommend a soup spoon because that way, you get as much as possible in one bite. But that’s just my really good advice, take it or leave it.

But who cares about the smoothie bowl right now, we need to talk about what’s important here…The Bachelor. It was pretty dramatic this week, making up for last weeks boring attempt at a show. Did anyone notice Ben’s swim shorts length? It pretty much looked like he was wearing boxers…for someone who weighs a buck fifty. There’s no way those were created to wear in public. They were clinging to his tall hairy thighs. Do you think Amanda’s children were actually running away from him on the beach because they were frightened by his thighs? Could be. It was just cruel to put Amanda’s date first because after dealing with children screaming in a car…and at home…and going to bed, any date seems way better. So all the other girls had the upper hand.

And then there was Kayla’s date. What the hell is this girl hiding? You can’t be the happy and smiley all the time. I’ve had friends like that and turns out they were hiding all kinds of weird sh*t. What is Kayla hiding? Let’s create a new campaign with that as our slogan. As they were building a toy house, I wonder if Ben was thinking…hey, maybe I could bring this back to Amanda’s kids and she could stay on the show one more week since they won’t be crying for another 10 minutes. Sadly, he forgot about the toy house and just carried her out of the factory like they are walking into their bedroom on their wedding night…with factory workers clapping. Not weird at all.

Ohhhhh another key to our puzzle. Kayla calls her parents mommy and daddy, in front of the person she wants to sleep with and an entire camera crew. THERE’S YOUR SIGN. To me, maybe you’re not prepared for marriage when you’re still calling your parents that. It creeps me out.

Now to JoJo. That girls boobs looked ON POINT at the rose ceremony. Maybe that’s what kept her in the running. Because it definitely wasn’t her family. As her brothers put Ben on blast for being on the show…when they knew exactly what the show entailed when JoJo got on it…did you notice JoJo’s mom drink straight from the bottle? That whole situation can’t leave you pumped for Christmas dinners at her house. Especially when she doesn’t even know if she loves the guy after 1 MONTH. Who doesn’t know that they love someone after 30 days??!? That’s not how this show works, JoJo! Fall in love or leave the island, what I always say. What?

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. This looks yummy! Just wondering if the sunflower seed butter is needed. It’s not something I have on hand. I can go buy some but just wondering what benefit it brings to this recipe. Please advise. Thanks!

  2. Wow this looks incredible Juli. I could just dive my face straight into it. Thank you for all of your recipes, you are truly fabulous and provide me with a constant stream of inspiration.

  3. I heard on a podcast that I listed to that one of JoJo’s brothers (Ben I think?) was on a reality tv dating show on some other channel that got cancelled, but he “fell in love” and was burned in the end. I still think they’re awful, but interesting context! I can’t wait until next week!

  4. I don’t (and never have) watch the Bachelor(ette) or any variation of it because I can’t stand hearing those plastic fools talk. But every time I read one of your posts about the show, I laugh my ass off. I imagine my commentary would be similar if I actually watched the shows. Also, can you just make this bowl for me please?? I’m making spaghetti squash pizza bake tonight but adding ricotta, mushrooms, and zuchini 🙂

    1. I love that pizza bake dish! I never thought about adding ricotta though and that sounds delicious. Definitely doing that the next time I make it.

  5. omg i’ve been calling my parents mommy and daddy since i could talk. i’ve never heard of anyone thinking it was weird and im 26!! id feel weird calling them something else at this stage of my life haha

      1. Haha so do I. And so do most people I know. Most people in my culture even call their in laws mummy anf daddy. So maybe its a cultural thing. Note to self: never do this in front of white American people????Love your blog btw. Can’t wait to try this.

    1. because there was no drama in her date lol it was easy peasy and sadly, boring. except for being in portland because portland is the absolute best

  6. looks SO good…

    no frozen bananas in our house, either… my toddler eats them too quickly to let them be frozen :-/

  7. Perfect timing, Juli! I’ve been doing egg-free breakfasts lately to see if my skin clears up too. These look BOMB. Can’t wait to try! Also, freaking love the picture. that pop of purple is so perfect!

  8. Your Bachelor commentaries are my fav. If only Ben could have you as his voice of reason;)
    Can’t wait to hear what you have to say about the finale!

  9. Julie, what about Lauren B, no commentary. I need your take on this and everything you said is completely ON POINT, like JoJo’s boobs!!

  10. Curious what the carb load is for this? I have a friend who is diabetes type 1 and is curious! Thanks!!!

  11. Would I be better of halving ingredients in the recipe or can I make more then one serving and save the other serving for another day?
