Ingredients

For the smoothie bowl

  • 1 large banana
  • 7 oz silken tofu
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tbsp soy yoghurt

For the cookie dough balls

  • 1 can tinned chickpeas drained and rinsed (about 240g or 1.5 cups)
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar
  • 1/2 scoop vegan protein powder optional
  • 1 oz dark chocolate chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp almond milk
  • 4 tbsp desiccated coconut

Instructions

  • To make the smoothie, simply blend together the ingredients in a blender or food processor until thoroughly combined
  • Similarly, to make the cookie dough balls, blend together the ingredients except for the coconut, slowly adding the almond milk until a dough-like texture is formed. Taste and add more agave nectar if you want it sweeter. Roll into 7-8 balls (around 3 cm in diameter) and coat in the desiccated coconut. Leave in the fridge for 15-20+ minutes for optimal results. 
  • Wonderful when enjoyed together, but can be eaten separately! 

Notes

To minimise cooking time, I didn't see it as necessary to bake the cookie dough balls. However, if you want them to be slightly crunchy on the outside, throw them into a preheated oven at 200 degrees C for 5-10 minutes.
