- 1 banana

- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
- 2 tablespoons nuts (optional)
- 1 cup milk
- Add all the ingredients into a blender with only half of the milk. Blend until smooth, adding more milk as needed, until desired consistency is reached.
- Pour contents into two bowls and add your favorite toppings on top. Serve immediately.
How to customize: You can customize this smoothie by using different kinds of nuts or nut butters, fruit, adding in some shredded coconut, or sweetening it more with maple syrup or honey, if desired. You can also customize it by the toppings that you decide to add. Refer to the "Ingredients and Substitutions" section above for more ideas.
How to store: Smoothie bowls are best served immediately. If you have leftovers, store it an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 day for the best flavor and texture. It may lose some of its thickness and get watery as the ice melts, but then you can enjoy it as a smoothie with a straw.
How to freeze smoothie bowls: Another way to store is to freeze them. Transfer the smoothie bowl to an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to eat, take it out of the freezer and allow it to defrost slightly on the counter for about 10 minutes. You should be able to easily eat it with a spoon.
