If you're wondering how to make a smoothie bowl, it's simple: First, you blend the ingredients. Next, add the toppings.
Then voila! You have an Instagram-worthy breakfast. Your friends will be totally jealous.
Sure, you can create your own smoothie bowl, but here are some classic smoothie bowl recipes you'll love:
1. Acai Smoothie Bowl
Acai berries are rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants improve your skin and heart health. This makes acai berries perfect for breakfast bowls.
To make an acai bowl, blend a frozen banana, 1/2 a cup of frozen chopped spinach, 1 cup of frozen berries, 1 cup of almond milk, a tablespoon of almond butter, a tablespoon or more of acai berry powder, 1/4 cup of ground flaxseed, 2 teaspoons of maple syrup, and a pinch of salt.
Use more almond butter to create a thicker consistency. Add more almond milk to make the acai bowl creamy.
Top the acai bowl off with granola and fresh fruit.
2. Berry Fantastic
For this smoothie bowl, you'll need a cup of frozen mixed berries. You can use raspberries, blueberries, strawberries or strawberry powder, and even elderberries for health benefits.
Blend the berries with a frozen banana, 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1 teaspoon of honey, and ice.
Top the smoothie bowl with more berries.
3. Cool Kale
Kale contains antioxidants, potassium, calcium, and more. That's why the healthiest smoothie bowls contain kale. Gotta get that vitamin C!
To make a Cool Kale bowl, blend kale with a banana, 1 cup of almond milk, avocado, agave syrup, and ice. Top with banana, raspberry powder, kiwi, or chia seeds.
All forms of kale work with this recipe. Consider using torn and stemmed large kale leaves, baby kale, or kale powder.
If you're feeling daring, go hard and use a whole avocado. This will make your smoothie bowl super creamy and nutritious.
4. Banana Blitz Bowl
The Banana Blitz Bowl is perfect if you want some dessert for breakfast.
This recipe calls for 2 bananas. That means more potassium for you. Potassium improves cardiovascular health, bone health, muscles, kidneys, adrenal functions, and more.
Blend 2 frozen bananas with 1 cup of almond milk, 1/4 cup of rolled oats, 3 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter, 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, and however much sweetener (like maple syrup or honey) you like.
Most people top this banana bowl off with dark chocolate chips, pomegranate powder, lavender flower, nuts, or honey drizzles.
