This smoothie bowl only takes 4 ingredients to make, plus added deliciousness for the toppings!
- frozen ripe strawberries, adds beautiful color and delicious berry flavor.
- frozen ripe bananas, it’s rich, creamy texture makes the smoothie bowl velvety smooth while also adding flavor and sweetness.
- milk of choice, it helps blend the fruit into the dreamy, creamy smoothie bowl.
- sweetener of choice, I used a stevia & monk fruit sweetener from Whole Earth Sweetener. It’s a plant-based zero calories sweetener, which keeps this dish light and healthy. It only needs a dash of extra sweetness because the ripe fruit adds natural sweetness. You could also use agave or honey too!
- toppings, I used almond butter + fruit + toasted coconut, optional
How to make this strawberry banana smoothie bowl
You may be asking, what’s the difference between a smoothie and a smoothie bowl?! Great question! A smoothie is a bit thinner, so you typically drink it out of a glass with a straw. In contrast, a smoothie bowl is more of a soft serve consistency, so you can top it with goodness and eat it with a spoon. It’s much like a fruity, nutritious sundae for breakfast. It’s a total breakfast win for you and your kids!
Here are a few key steps to creating this smoothie bowl (and not accidentally making a smoothie!):
- use all frozen fruit, this create a delicious, soft-serve like consistency
- first just blend the fruit until it creates a pebble-like consistency, a crucial step to creating the perfect smoothie bowl consistency
- slowly add the milk, I add just 1/2 tablespoon at a time until it’s blends into a creamy, thick consistency. If you add the milk too quickly, it can become too runny.
- pour into cold bowl, this helps prevent it from melting too quickly
- add toppings, for extra flavor and texture!
- swap out another berry for the strawberries, blueberry or raspberries would also work great
- have fun with the toppings, any sort of nut butter adds extra richness and protein, I also love adding granola for crunch. Any cut up fruit adds color and extra flavor! Have fun to make this smoothie bowl extra special and delish!
- add in some spices, ground cinnamon, cardamom, or ginger would add a nice, fun flavor kick!
- other nutrition boosters, you could add some vanilla or other flavored protein for an extra delicious nutritional boost; maca or cacao powder, or even some greens.
This delicious smoothie bowl is a delicious, nutritious, creamy, dreamy breakfast treat! It’s perfect for a healthy, tasty, and satisfying breakfast for you and your kids!
