Banana Maca Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are fast becoming my favourite breakfast. I mean, of course, I still love porridge a lot, nothing can break that bond, but sometimes I like to have something different and smoothie bowls have become my go-to. Smoothies are wonderful but I find that having that alone for breakfast doesn't completely satisfy me, so smoothie bowls are the perfect alternative, filled with lots of fruit goodness but with plenty of toppings too to make it a bit more substantial. Plus, my banana granola makes the yummiest smoothie bowl topping (or at least I think so).

The flavour combination in this recipe was inspired by a really delicious smoothie bowl I had at Hula Juice Bar in Edinburgh a few months ago - the maca nana bowl, which is a banana, vanilla and maca smoothie topped with raspberry granola, peanut butter, and berries. It was incredible, and while I wish I could eat there every single morning because damn it is so good, it's not the most practical so I came up with my own recipe to recreate it at home and I'm so happy with how it turned out. I mean nothing beats the original but this is a really good runner up, and it means if you don't live near Edinburgh you can still enjoy the yumminess (but seriously, if you do live near you need to get to Hula and try it too)!
