Peanut Butter Banana Date Nice Cream Bowl with Caramelized Coconut Banana's, Brown Butter Chocolate Drizzle N Berries



I was craving something sweet...sometimes nothing will do, but a big bowl of peanut butter and chocolate! My solution --> a smoothie bowl made with bananas and dates drizzled with organic chocolate and peanut butter and topped with caramelized coconut bananas, brown butter chocolate squares, berries, mint, buckinis, cacao nibs and everything you dream about. 

Ingredients:

Nice Cream:
2 frozen bananas
3 soft pitted dates
1 tbsp. organic peanut butter
1/4 cup water

Chocolate Drizzle:
2 squares of chocolate (I used this amazing Brown Butter Organic Chocolate) You can also opt for one of Altereco's vegan chocolates.
1 tsp. coconut oil

Peanut Butter Drizzle:
1 tsp. organic peanut butter
1/2 tsp. coconut oil

Caramelized Coconut Sugar Bananas:
6 banana coins
1 tbsp. coconut sugar
1 tbsp. coconut oil

Extra Toppings:
5 berries
3 sprigs of mint
1 tbsp. buckinis (sprouted buckwheat groats)
1 tbsp. cacao nibs


Directions:

Nice Cream:
Blend frozen bananas, dates, peanut butter and water together. set in the freezer until ready to serve.

Chocolate Drizzle:
In a small cup melt chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until liquified.

Peanut Butter Drizzle:
In a small cup melt peanut butter and coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until liquified.

Caramelized Coconut Sugar Bananas:
Dip each side of the banana coin in coconut sugar and place in a hot pan with 1 tbsp. hot coconut oil. Fry on each side until a crispy shell is formed. *I like to flip them with chopsticks...it's easier than a spatula.

Assembling:
Take the nice cream out of the freezer and pour/spoon into a bowl. Drizzle chocolate and peanut butter sauces (if you want to make it look pretty swirl them with a toothpick, move quickly because both or these sauces will harden in 10 seconds or so). Place caramelized banana's on top, followed by berries, mint, buckinis and cacao nibs. And there you have it!
