Smoothie bowls are almost as popular as choker necklaces. After admitting I had a smoothie bowl addiction and dropping an average of 8 dollars per bowl, I decided to make my own at home.
All of the fruit used should have no added sugar and can be found at your local groceria. If your grocery store is a slacker, Walmart has chia seeds and coconut flakes.
- 1 ba na na
- 1/4 cup frozen strawbs
- 1/2 cup frozen berry medley
- 1/4 cup frozen pineapple
- 1 cup unsweetened, original almond/coconut milk
- Sweetener as desired (e.g. Stevia)
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- Blend/puree the frozen strawberries, frozen berries, frozen pineapple, milk, and sweetener
- Sprinkle some granola on the bottom of the bowl
- Pour the smoothie base into the bowl
- Garnish with chia seeds, coconut flakes, granola, and bananer
- Too easy?! I know, huh
To change the consistency of the smoothie base, try adding half a cup of yogurt into the mix. I prefer Dannon Light and Fit Greek Banana Cream yogurt. I also prefer to use a food processor rather than a blender.
Don’t like bananas? Top your bowl with whatever fruit you fancy. Does coconut make you cringe? Swap it for some nuts. Do you have 6 sweet teeth? Drizzle a honey-licious design on top. Lacking on your vitamin A? Toss some spinach in before blending your base. I pinky promise you won’t taste it.
Become the next Picasso of smoothie bowls. Go wild. Grow up, play with your food.
