* Be sure to use a large frozen banana or the texture of the smoothie bowl won't be thick enough.
** If you are omitting the protein powder, you can reduce the almond milk to 1 cup (250 mL), and add more from there if needed. I use Sunwarrior Warrior Blend protein powder in "Natural". It's important to use a neutral-flavoured protein powder so it doesn't overwhelm the delicate flavours of the smoothie bowl.
If you want a bit of a kick flavour-wise, try adding some fresh ginger (to taste) to heighten the flavours.
