Want to know a secret? You can turn just about any smoothie that you make into a smoothie bowl! Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone though. The beauty of a bowl is you can go crazy with the toppings. Add crunch with granola, add more fruit, shredded coconut, or drizzle with nut butter. It is such a great way to make a smoothie more like “eating food” that just drinking your meals.

And let’s be honest, adding fun toppings just makes me want to eat it more.

Why You’ll Love Smoothie Bowls

  • Easy – 5 minutes to add the ingredients to the blender and process until smooth is all it takes. So even on those busy mornings you can have this ready with minimal effort.
  • Filling – this is a very nutrient dense meal, with all the fiber and protein from the Greek yogurt you will be full until lunch time!
  • Customizable – I love any recipe that you can swap ingredients and make it just a little different each time. Use whatever fruit you have in your freezer, top with whatever fruit or granola you have on hand. The possibilities are pretty much endless.

How To Make Smoothie Bowls

  • Add all of the ingredients to the blender.
  • Process until smooth. You may need to add more milk to get your desired consistency. This can be thicker than a traditional smoothie since you are eating with a spoon.

Toppings

The best part of a smoothie bowl is getting to top with anything that you like! Here are just a few ideas, but you can raid your fridge or pantry to make it however you like.

  • Berries – strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries
  • Nut Butter – works well to heat a little so you can drizzle over the top
  • Granola
  • Shredded Coconut
  • Chia Seeds
  • Banana

Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • These are best when served immediately. You can store them in the fridge if you have leftovers, but they will get runny and the texture will change.
  • Get creative – make this what YOU like. If you don’t like banana don’t use it. You can add avocado or just more yogurt. Add honey if you like it sweeter. So many options, you can make it differently every morning of the week.
  • If your smoothie bowl is too thick you can add more milk. Scrape down the side of your blender, and if the mixture is too thick to blend smooth add a little more liquid.
  • If you are one who counts macros, add protein powder to this to make it even more macro friendly.

Is a fruit smoothie bowl healthy?

A fruit smoothie bowl is loaded with fiber, protein, carbohydrates and depending on what you top it with healthy fats. So it can a very healthy and nutritious way to start your day. It can be very easy to add a lot of extra toppings, so as long as you are mindful of what you add, it is a great choice to fuel your morning.

Can I make this dairy free?

Absolutely! You can use a dairy free yogurt and milk to make this smoothie bowl. Those things make it creamy and a consistency you want, so dairy free options are great alternatives.
