10 Delicious and Nutritious Smoothie Bowl Recipes
Smoothie bowls are the latest health trend for breakfast, but there are so many options! Here’s the best smoothie bowl recipes to choose from.
It’s as the old saying goes, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, you need to start your day off right with something that’s healthy and can give you the energy boost you need to get through your long day.
When you think healthy you probably think of something that tastes like cardboard but it doesn’t have to be like this. What if we told you that you could have ice cream for breakfast? Okay, so it’s not actually ice cream but it’s just as tasty and has a similar consistency.
We’re talking about smoothie bowls. It’s sort of the same thing that you whip up in a blender and drink with a straw except it’s thick enough to eat with a spoon. If this sounds good to you, keep reading for a few great smoothie bowl recipes that you can try at home.
To start out this Acai bowl you’ll need to combine a frozen banana, frozen spinach, and frozen berries of your choice in a blender. Throw in almond butter, almond milk, maple syrup, ground flaxseed, a sprinkle of salt, and acai powder of course. Blend until you get your desired consistency and pour it in a bowl.
You can top it off with granola, and any fresh fruit that you think would go well with acai or just fruits that you like.
2. Mango Pineapple
If you want to be able to close your eyes and pretend that you’re on an island vacation instead of in your living room with screaming children, then you need this mango pineapple smoothie bowl.
For the base, you’ll need a frozen banana, frozen mango chunks, frozen pineapple chunks, and unsweetened coconut milk. Throw these into a blender and mix them. You can top it with tropical granola, strawberries, bananas, and kiwis.
The peach-raspberry is a sweet blend made with strawberries, raspberries, and zucchini? You’ll combine these fruits and veggie with plain yogurt, ground flaxseed, vanilla extract, and honey in a blender.
Blend the mixture to your desired consistency and then top it with granola, and other fruits of your choice.
4. Mixed Berry Detox
If you’re trying to detox after eating too much at a holiday get together or family event, this is the bowl you want to eat. It’s full of antioxidants and turmeric which will deflate a bloated tummy.
You’ll need spinach or kale whichever you prefer, a frozen banana, pitted cherries, frozen mixed berries, flaxseed, regular or coconut water, lemon juice, turmeric, and some kind of sweetener.
Mix these ingredients together and top it with seeds, coconut shavings, fruit, whatever you want.
Super-green doesn’t look or sound very appetizing but it’s not so bad when you get passed the freshly cut grass look of the mixture. Slice up a banana and leave it in the freezer for 30 minutes to a day depending on when you decide to make this.
After the banana slices have been frozen, you’ll toss them in a blender with spinach, pineapples, kiwis, hempseed, salt, coconut water, honey, and ginger. Mix this together until it’s good and hulk green and pour it in a bowl. Much like the others on this list, you can top it with whatever you want.
6. Banana Chocolate Chunk
This one reads like a cookie and looks like chocolate milk. You’ll need a frozen banana, cocoa powder, plain or vanilla yogurt, chia seeds, a nut of your choice, and cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips.
Put all the ingredients except the chocolate chips, nuts, and chia seeds into a blender and blend it until it’s your desired consistency. Pour the mixture into a bowl and top it with the remaining ingredients and any fruit you want.
7. Acai with Berries and Banana
This is another acai bowl but with an added twist of berries and banana. Grab a banana and freeze it for a little bit. After it’s frozen, throw it in a blender with blueberries, almond milk, acai powder, and chia seeds.
Blend the ingredients until it’s smooth and pour it into your breakfast bowl. You can top it with honey, strawberries, and granola if you want.
8. Banana Berry
Banana balances out the sweet taste of berries in this breakfast smoothie bowl. All you’ll need is unsweetened vanilla almond milk, frozen berries, vanilla protein powder, banana, and spinach.
Blend them together, pour it in a bowl and top it with chia seeds, banana slices, raspberries, coconut flakes, and anything else you can think of that you think would pair well with banana and berries.
This is going to sound a bit weird but for this bowl, you’ll need frozen cauliflower. Don’t worry it doesn’t really have a taste so you’ll be able to reap the health benefits without even knowing it’s there.
On top of the frozen cauliflower you’ll also need frozen banana slices, strawberries, cacao powder, coconut water, coconut milk, almond butter, salt, and honey if you want something to sweeten up the mixture.
Mix the ingredients in a blender. Keep adding coconut water until you get it to your desired thickness and pour it in a bowl when finished.
10. Strawberry Coconut
This bowl looks like something that you would pull out of a box of Valentines Day chocolates depending on how you set up the presentation. You’ll put frozen strawberries in a blender with strawberry extract, coconut milk, and protein powder.
Top this mixture with granola, coconut flakes, pecans, chocolate chips, and sliced strawberries.
