Key Ingredients

This Snickers smoothie is creamy and perfectly sweet, so it actually tastes like you’re indulging into a Snickers bar. Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • Frozen Banana: A frozen banana adds more sweetness and creaminess to this smoothie bowl!
  • Frozen Cauliflower: I know it sounds crazy, but adding frozen cauliflower is where the thick texture comes from. Don’t worry, you can’t taste it. I recommend using store bought frozen cauliflower, or even frozen cauliflower rice, because it blends up nicely.
  • Medjool Dates: Adding dates to the recipe transpires the most amazing texture to achieve the tastes of caramel. Also, be sure to make sure that your dates are pitted.
  • Cacao Powder: To make the smoothie chocolatey! If you don’t have cacao powder, you can use cocoa powder or even vegan chocolate protein powder.
  • Peanut Butter: Adding peanut butter is key to achieve the classic Snicker bar flavor. I recommend using creamy peanut butter, made with 1 ingredient, peanuts!
  • Non-dairy Milk: You only need a little liquid to blend, since it’s a smoothie bowl. I used unsweetened almond milk, but you can use any non-dairy milk that you enjoy.
  • Flaxseeds: Flaxseeds are loaded with nutrients, high in omega-3 fats, rich in dietary fiber, and you can’t even taste them. They are completely optional, so no problem if you don’t have them…yet!

Tips for making the Perfect Smoothie Bowl

To make the perfect smoothie bowl, make sure to follow these tips!

  • Use a frozen banana and frozen cauliflower to achieve a thick consistency.
  • Start off by only adding 1/3 cup of non-dairy milk and only add more if needed.
  • Use a high-speed blender, with a tamper, to ensure that your smoothie bowl achieves a thick and creamy texture.
  • Place your serving bowl in the freezer before you begin preparing this recipe and remove it when smoothie is ready. This will ensure that your smoothie bowl stays cold as you enjoy it.

Fresh versus frozen fruit

The key to making smoothie bowls is using frozen fruit. By adding frozen fruits to your smoothies, you will achieve a thicker result, so that you can add toppings, without them sinking. Also, don’t add too much liquid, because it is a smoothie bowl after all. I usually start with a little non-dairy milk and add more, if needed, until I reach the desired thickness. 

Smoothie Bowl FAQ

Can I make this smoothie bowl a smoothie?

Absolutely! This smoothie bowl can be as thick or as thin as you desire. Increase the liquid from 1/3 cup to 1 cup, to make it a smoothie.

Can I add protein powder?

Yes! To increase the protein content of this smoothie bowl, add a scoop of your favorite protein powder. I recommend using a chocolate flavor for this smoothie bowl recipe.

Can I make this smoothie bowl banana free?

Certainly, replace the frozen banana with an additional 1/2 cup of frozen cauliflower.

Can I make this smoothie bowl in advance?

Unfortunately, no. I do not recommend making this Snickers Smoothie Bowl in advance. However, you can definitely prep all the ingredients, the night before, by adding them to a zip lock bag. That way, in the morning, all you need to do is add the ingredients, along with non-dairy milk, to your blender.
