Making a berry smoothie bowl
A smoothie bowl is great for those mornings when you need to get moving in a hurry. They are quick to make, which means you can have something more exciting than toast even when you don’t have much time.
This smoothie bowl recipe makes enough for four people. It is possible to keep leftovers in the fridge for the next morning, but it does not keep overly well. There may be some separation so give it a good stir before eating.
Mix the frozen berries, a ripe banana, coconut milk, sugar and rolled oats in a food processor or blender. I used frozen blueberries, but other berries will work just fine.
Frozen berries are one of the tricks for getting a think smoothie and mean you don’t have to use ice cubes to get the right temperature. They are also easier for a weak blender to work with.
Blend everything together until it is creamy and smooth. It will still have a thick consistency, perfect for eating with a spoon. Divide it between four bowls and add the toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
There is no end to the toppings you can add to a smoothie bowl. I’ve tried to match the flavours of this bowl by adding additional berries on top, but there is room to be creative. Having fun making each smoothie bowl your own!
Here are some suggestions for smoothie bowl toppings you can add:
- banana slices
- pomegranate seeds
- rolled oats
- chia seeds
- pumpkin seeds
- flaked coconut
- flaked chocolate
- cacao nibs
- any nuts you can find (I love pistachios)!
- 2 cups frozen blueberries
- 1 banana
- 1 can / 400 ml coconut milk
- ⅓ cup rolled oats
- 2-3 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds (optional)
- ⅓ cup blueberries (optional)
- 1-2 strawberries (optional)
- 1 tablespoon flaked coconut
- In a food processor or a blender combine frozen blueberries, one banana, coconut milk, granulated sugar and rolled oats and blend until smooth.
- Divide among 4 bowls and top with more berries, chia seeds, rolled oats and flaked coconut.
Experiment with toppings to add variety to your breakfast. A list to get you started is in the post.
