Creamy Coconut-Banana Smoothie Bowl

Best For An Occasional Breakfast

Would you believe me if I told you that the bowl you see on your left is actually healthy? It is raw, unprocessed and the only sweetener we use is banana.



MAKES 700 ml

• 3 frozen bananas
• ¼ cup water
• 1 cups coconut cream (malai)*
• 1 coin ginger
• 2 dates, seedless
• 1 tablespoon cacao powder or carob powder
• ½ teaspoon cinnamon powder
• any seasonal fruits and nuts for topping

*In case coconut cream (malai) is not available, use fresh grated coconut


Take the bananas, peel, slice and put in the freezer for about 6 hours


1. Take the bananas, peel, slice and put in the freezer for about 6 hours. Blend together the frozen bananas, coconut water, coconut cream, cacao powder, ginger and cinnamon.

2. Pour into bowls and top with any fresh seasonal fruits and nuts. I used banana, grapes, kiwi, figs, almonds, cacao nibs and chia seeds.

• Tip Nuts and seeds are great, to add texture to your bowl, but please don’t go overboard with them. At the end of the day, they are dry in nature and must be eaten in limited amounts. Focus on fresh, water-rich fruits for your topping.

• Tip Don’t forget to freeze your banana. They are key to achieving a good texture for your smoothie base.



  • Provides a burst of energy from natural sugars in bananas and dates.
  • Rich in potassium, which supports heart health and helps regulate blood pressure.
  • Coconut cream adds healthy fats that promote satiety and aid in nutrient absorption.
  • Ginger aids digestion and may help alleviate nausea.
  • Cacao powder offers antioxidants and may improve mood and cognitive function.
  • Toppings such as fruits and nuts provide vitamins, minerals, and fiber for overall health and wellness.
