Anyone else here eat Nutella out of the jar for breakfast? Now, don’t get me wrong, that is a PERFECT breakfast in every shape and form. But, if you want to get a few more nutrients in during the morning with the same great chocolate hazelnut taste, then you’ve come to the right place. Today I present to you my Vegan Nutella Smoothie Bowl!
This thick (if you want to learn more about how to ensure your smoothie bowl is thicker than a Snickers filled with Nutella, read this blog post!), creamy smoothie bowl is basically like diving straight into a new jar of Nutella, just with a whole lot more fiber, nutrients, and no sugar crash 5 minutes later. It’s loaded with plant based protein and healthy fats, ensuring that you’ll stay full and focused throughout your day afterwards.
Now, before the vegans started hurling hazelnuts at me, I know regular Nutella is not vegan. Well, it wasn’t, until I made a vegan version! Check it out here. Make it, bath it in, and then immediately turn around and make this smoothie bowl.
I was inspired to make this after Frooze Balls launched their new Trader Joe’s flavors. Their chocolate hazelnut flavor is basically Nutella formed into a bite sized ball. They’re also the perfect topping for this smoothie bowl. Dice up a couple of them, sprinkle them over with some cacao nibs and ripe strawberries and ready your spoon for a chocolatey adventure.
If you make this recipe or any others on my blog, tag me in a photo on Instagram @figisisters . I would love to see your recreation!

Add all smoothie ingredients to a food processor or high-speed blender. Blend until completely smooth.
Remove bowl from the freezer. Pour food processor contents into the bowl.
Top with desired toppings and enjoy immediately.
Use just enough nut milk to get the food processor or blender going to ensure that your smoothie bowl is thick. Start with 60 ml and add more as needed to reach desired consistency.
Placing your bowl in the freezer helps to ensure the smoothie bowl stays cold while you eat it.
