What You’ll Need
- Blueberries- These sweet berries are the star of the show. Use fresh, ripe blueberries for the best flavor.
- Blackberries– These add some extra tartness along with the sweet.
- Bananas– This sweet fruit also adds creaminess to the smoothie bowl.
- Honey-For just a touch for sweetness.
- Plain Greek yogurt– This protein-packed ingredient also makes the Blueberry Smoothie Bowl extra creamy and smooth.
- Almond butter– For some thickness, nutty flavor, and added protein.
- Kiwi– This tropical fruit has a nice sweet-tart flavor that goes with the rest. Use it as a topping or add it to the smoothie.
- Toppings- I used granola, coconut chips, and chia seeds for my bowl, but you can add other toppings as well, such as goji berries, sliced bananas, and fresh berries.
Add-ins and Substitutions
- Add other fruits- Try this recipe with other fruits, such as peaches, mango, pineapple, raspberries, cherries, or strawberries.
- Substitute frozen fruit- You can also make this with frozen fruit. It will make the smoothie bowl a little thicker, so you may need to add a little water or milk to help it blend.
- Add protein powder- Add some more protein to this smoothie bowl with the addition of some vanilla or unflavored protein powder.
- Make it dairy-free- Just substitute the yogurt for plant-based yogurt, such as coconut milk yogurt, for a dairy-free meal.
How to Make Blueberry Smoothie Bowls
- Blend the ingredients. Place the fruit into a blender, along with the honey, Greek yogurt, and almond butter. Pulse the blender on high until the ingredients obtain a smooth consistency.
- Add toppings. Pour the blueberry smoothie into a large bowl and top with your favorite toppings. I used kiwi, coconut flakes, chia seeds, and granola on mine.
Pro Tip: This smoothie bowl tastes best cold, so keep it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve.
- Check the berries for stems- Some always sneak into a pint of these tasty berries, so check them for stems before adding them to the blender.
- Cut the bananas- It’s best to chop the bananas in half or smaller so they more easily blend with the rest of the ingredients.
- Use creamy almond butter- To keep your smoothie a smooth and creamy consistency, use creamy nut butter to avoid crunchy chunks inside.
- Scrape down the sides of the blender- If the ingredients are stuck on the sides of the blender, scrape them down so the smoothie is thoroughly combined.
If you want to thicken a smoothie bowl, the best thing to do is use frozen fruit. They blend to a thicker consistency than fresh fruit. You can also thicken it with nut butters, yogurt, protein powder, and chia seeds.
Yes, you can make these smoothie bowls the night before. Just prepare the smoothie and then store it in a lidded container in the fridge overnight. Add the toppings when you’re ready to eat it.
This Blueberry Smoothie Bowl is the perfect light breakfast. But you can also serve it with other morning favorites for the best family brunch.
