About This Smoothie Bowl Recipe
A smoothie bowl is essentially a smoothie of fruit, yogurt, milk, juice, or sometimes added veggies, which is blended and poured into a bowl, rather than a cup. Then, almost like yogurt, you add toppings: fresh fruit, like bananas or blueberries, granola, shredded coconut, flax seeds, hemp seeds, nuts, and more!
What You'll Need To Make This Smoothie Bowl
Frozen acai berry. I find these at my local Trader Joe's. If you can't find it, no problem! Just substitute whatever frozen fruit you like.
Frozen fruit: Whatever you'd like to add! I do mixed berries, like raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries.
Yogurt: You can use dairy-free or lactose-free yogurt. This will help thicken the smoothie.
Milk: You can use dairy-free, plant milk, or lcatose-free milk. This will help blend the smoothie together. You could also use juice, if you'd like this to be more fruity!
Toppings: The toppings are the most fun part of a smoothie bowl! Fresh fruit, nuts, granola, coconut flakes,, chia seeds - hemp hearts - whatever floats your boat! I use Purely Elizabeth's granola for mine.
How To Make This Smoothie Bowl
All you do is blend everything in a blender or food processor until smooth. Then pour into a bowl and add your favorite toppings, sliced fruit, granola, or whatever else you like. It's such an easy breakfast or snack!
Can I Make This Dairy-Free?
Of course! You can use whatever non-dairy milk you prefer. Or for a fruitier flavor, use orange juice or another fruit-based juice. You can also substitute dairy-free yogurt. I prefer Green Valley for lactose-free yogurt, and So Delicious for dairy-free yogurt.
Can I Save This Smoothie For Later?
I wouldn't suggest it. Smoothies, once mixed, tend to melt and become more watery as time goes on. So if you are going to make this smoothie bowl, I'd suggest eating it right away or quickly after!
