PB2 and Banana Smoothie Bowl

In keeping with my theme of having cold breakfasts on these hot Summer mornings, I want to share another fun new breakfast dish with you... or rather another breakfast 'bowl.  I call it PB2 and Banana Smoothie Bowl.

Is there anyone out there who has not enjoyed the pleasure of eating what has become commonly known as banana soft-serve or nice-cream?  You just take a frozen banana and a bit of almond or coconut milk and blend them together till creamy... lovely.  I like to  add flavorings to mine so this breakfast was just an extension of that idea.  I added some PB2, some yogurt and some vanilla protein powder, to turn a dessert snack into a hearty cold breakfast, just right for a hot Summer morning.

I always have a few frozen bananas, peeled and cut into chunks, in a sealed container in my freezer, just waiting to toss into the food processor for quick snacks and desserts... a great way to use over-ripe bananas.

Are you a smoothie-for-breakfast fan?  Ever eat yours out of a bowl?
