What is a Smoothie Bowl?

A smoothie bowl is like a traditional smoothie with a thick consistency that you eat from a bowl with a spoon. You generally add delicious toppings to enhance the flavor and heartiness of the bowl.

If you've ever heard of the wildly popular acai bowl, you'll know what a smoothie bowl is. An acai bowl is an acai smoothie bowl and became a hit when acai was all the rage for its health benefits. 

Smoothie bowls are an easy, delicious, and healthy breakfast or snack and a great way to sneak in healthy fruits and vegetables. 

Why You'll Love These Smoothie Bowls

These three smoothie bowls use frozen fruit, eliminating the need to wait until fresh fruit is in season. They use five simple ingredients and have a creamy texture from the banana. 

These fruity smoothie bowls are vegan and use coconut milk, but you can use your favorite dairy or non-dairy milk. You can add your favorite protein powder for an extra boost, but it's not required to get the perfect texture.

What Ingredients are in These Easy Fruit Smoothie Bowls?

Each bowl contains the following ingredients:

  • Banana - you'll use frozen banana. To freeze your banana, cut into rounds or four pieces, lay on a sheet of parchment paper, place on a tray and freeze for a few hours. You don't want to freeze a banana with the peel on. It will be difficult to peel and cut once frozen. 
  • Frozen fruit or greens - depending on which flavor you would like, you'll use frozen fruit or fresh greens. Most grocery stores, and even Costco, carry varieties of frozen fruit year round. The frozen fruit will also help make a thicker smoothie bowl than if you used fresh fruit. 
  • Coconut milk - we love the flavor and creaminess coconut milk adds to these smoothie bowls, but if you prefer a different milk, any milk will do, and oat milk would also be delicious. 
  • Maple syrup - just a bit of maple syrup is added to enhance the sweetness in these bowls without making them overly sweet. 
  • Vanilla extract - vanilla extract adds a tasty flavor to these bowls. If you have a vanilla flavored milk on hand, you can half or eliminate the vanilla extract, but it's highly recommended you add some vanilla flavor. 

You can top your bowl with your favorite toppings.

How to Make Easy Fruit Smoothie Bowls

No matter the flavor you choose, you can make each bowl by adding your smoothie ingredients to the blender. Blend on high. It will take about 3 minutes and a few times of stopping to press down on the fruit before the smoothie will be completely blended and is soft serve ice cream consistency. 

You can use a food processor to make this smoothie bowl, but you may end up with little bits of fruit that aren't fully blended. 

Once blended, pour into a bowl and top with your favorite topping(s).

What are the Best Smoothie Bowl Toppings?

The sky is really the limit with smoothie bowl toppings! You can add whatever you have and love. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Chia seeds - these healthy seeds are full of protein, fiber and healthy fats. they'll also add a fun crunch. 
  • Fresh fruit - fresh berries, dragon fruit, pineapple chunks and pomegranate are a few ideas. 
  • Granola - granola is a great way to add extra crunch, nutrients and heartiness to your smoothie bowl. 
  • Nuts, seeds and dried fruit- hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, goji berries, cacao nibs, coconut flakes, almonds and cashews are all healthy toppings that are tasty and add an extra bang to your smoothie bowl.
  • Nut butters - a little almond butter or peanut butter is a nice treat to a smoothie bowl and adds healthy fats.
