This classic combo makes for the best. damn. smoothie bowl. Ever. Prefer to sip your smoothie? We have a nutty fix for you, too.

By Lauren Mazzo

There are few better combos in the world besides banana and peanut butter...except, all right, peanut butter and jelly or peanut butter and chocolate. Basically, anything with peanut butter.

But this Ultimate Banana Smoothie Bowl recipe by Edible Woman puts the nut butter and banana combo to great use: as the creamy cool foundation for a healthy, hearty smoothie bowl.

Blend up some frozen bananas, almond milk, oats, and nut butter, taking care to include less liquid than you would in a regular smoothie (because you want to spoon, not sip it).

The next-even more important-step is to prep and add the toppings. This particular bowl uses a blend of superseeds including chia, sunflower, pumpkin, flax, and hemp hearts to add a healthy dose of nutrition in a tiny little package. (More on the health benefits of those little babies right here.)

Toast some cashews, coconut ribbons, and rolled oats, then sprinkle the toasted mixture, seeds, and some cacao nibs atop your peanut butter-banana smoothie bowl. Slice up some fresh bananas, and artfully arrange them into a line, and you've got an Instagram-worthy breakfast, lunch, or dessert. For bonus points, drizzle a little extra melted nut butter over the top. (Related: The 6 Best Blenders for Smoothies)

The best part of these tasty peanut butter-banana smoothie bowls is that it feels like you're eating a big bowl of ice cream. Especially when you're nomming on this creation, a carrot cake smoothie bowl, or an apple pie smoothie bowl. In reality, it's a whole lot healthier. Filled with fiber from the bananas and healthy fats from the nuts and seeds, this bowl is satiating, yet naturally sweet. To up the fullness factor even more, add a scoop of your favorite protein—maybe even one that's flavored like peanut butter.

In a hurry and need a peanut butter-banana smoothie you can enjoy on-the-go sans bowl? Try this almost-too-easy solution (and try this tropical twist on a peanut butter-banana smoothie next!).
