Pistachio ice cream smoothie bowls taste just like pistachio ice cream – but they’re healthy! Creamy and rich, they are vegan, gluten-free, and paleo.



Pistachio Ice Cream Smoothie Bowl

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/3 cup raw shelled pistachios
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed kale, stems removed
  • 1 cup almond milk + ¼ cup if needed (protein powder can make the smoothie quite thick, so use your judgment).
  • ¼½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 serving protein powder of choice (I like vanilla flavored)
  • 2 Medjool dates, pitted (see notes)
  • Pinch of sea salt

Coconut Buckwheat Granola


Pistachio Ice Cream Smoothie

  1. Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Add more almond milk depending on desired consistency.

Coconut Buckwheat Granola

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In a bowl, stir the buckwheat groats together with seeds and nuts, coconut, and salt.
  3. In a separate small bowl, mash the banana with a fork and mix in the coconut oil and maple syrup. Add the dry buckwheat groat mixture to the wet mixture and stir until everything is nicely coated.
  4. Spread evenly onto a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring once halfway through, until fragrant and golden. Watch carefully as coconut flakes burn very easily! The exact cooking time will vary depending on your oven.
  5. Let cool before storing in an air-tight container.

To Serve

  1. Divide pistachio ice cream smoothie into two bowls. Top with ¼ – ½ cups of coconut buckwheat granola.


The number of dates you use will depend on the sweetness of your protein powder and personal preference.

Stored in an airtight container, the coconut buckwheat granola will stay fresh for several weeks.
