my favorite smoothie bowl recipe

As temperatures have been heating up, I bet your Instagram feed has seen its fair share of smoothie bowls. I mean, they're basically a food blogger's dream: impressively gorgeous, customizable, and their toppings pack an extra nutrient punch.


As one of my first breakfasts of summer, I decided to create smoothie bowl of my own with all of my favorite goodies.  Rachel and I hit Whole Foods for some pretty fruits, then she came over to take photos and enjoy with me. I wrote down the completed recipe so I could present it on the blog and you could make a beautiful breakfast for yourself! So, grab a friend and your blender-- you're gonna wanna make this one.

THE BASE
makes two bowls
  • 1/4 ripe avocado....(or 1/2 of those cute mini ones)
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 cup of frozen raspberries (or any frozen berry, use a lighter berry for a greener color)
  • 3 handfuls of fresh baby spinach (or more if you're feelin green)
  • 1 handful baby kale
  • 1.5 cups sugar free coconut milk (full fat for those healthy fats!
  • 1/2 tsp matcha with 1/2 tsp hot water
Blend until creamy, add more coconut milk if it won't blend. (Optional: place your bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes to thicken it so the toppings don't sink!)

THE TOPPINGS
The toppings are what make the bowl. I added tons of fruit and seeds, and you can also add nut butters!


Some ideas:
  • Pomegranate
  • Kiwi
  • Dragonfruit
  • Citrus slices
  • Blueberries
  • Fruit cut with melon baller
  • Banana slices
  • Drizzled yogurt
  • Chia pudding
  • Drizzled nut butter
  • Hemp hearts
  • Chia seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Almond slices
  • Coconut flakes/chips

  1. I should try adding avocado to my smoothie bowls. I've started experimenting with making my own. I normally just do a regular acai bowl.

  2. The best way to ensure you are getting the best deal on the right cookware is to shop online. You can compare sets side by side and inspect each item in a set. Sometimes the pictures aren't good representations. Circulon Premier Professional

  4. Smoothies are an extraordinary breakfast choice for pressing in a lot of supplements into your day. For weight reduction, it's about what you put in them. http://smoothierecepty.cz
