Banana Cream Monkey Bowls

A no-cook breakfast can be filling and refreshing on a weekend or, because it’s so fast, any work or school day! The nuts and oil add substance, and the cinnamon plays perfectly off the sweet fruits.


  • 2 bananas, peeled and frozen in 1-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon milk (any kind) plus extra as needed
  • 1 fresh banana, sliced
  • 4 strawberries, sliced
  • ½ cup raw cashews, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cacao nibs (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flakes (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons honey (optional)


Using a food processor, blend frozen bananas, coconut oil, cinnamon and milk just enough to form a thick cream.

Divide cream between two bowls.

Top, evenly divided, with sliced banana, strawberries, cashews, coconut flakes and cacao nibs, and drizzle with optional honey.
