Lately I’ve been seeing smoothie bowls everywhere and finally I decided to try it.

It’s pretty simple and can be made with any fruit really. That’s the fun of it, you can mix and match as you please. I’m a bit lazy when coming to cooking so I usually just drag what I have in my kitchen and make a meal. So, I dug around in and came up with this.

Check it out!

You’ll need fruits, a blender and water. That’s it.

My smoothie had bananas, apples and frozen mixed berries and frozen fruit (mango, strawberries and peaches). Simply add them all together with a little water to the blender and blend on low. Add water as you go along but don’t put too much too fast. You want the smoothie to have some body to it.

You can replace the water with milk or coconut water and add some protein powder and seeds. Some sweetener can come in handy as some fruits are a bit tangy. Keep blending until you get the consistency you like. Some like soft serve-y type smoothies while others (me) like some chunks of fruit. Gosh, either way it is absolutely delicious.

Oh and the toppings! You can go anywhere with these but I used what I had in my pantry so I chose fruit, coconut and granola.

Smoothies come in so handy for breakfast or a guilt-free nutrient filled, tasty snack. Try it and let us know what you think. This recipe is easy, fast and so healthy!

    I think this is amazing! I love smoothies, they are my go-to breakfast especially during busy mornings! Smoothie bowls are also really lovely and I always liked berries even with greens! This smoothie bowl is a must try!

  2. Those are literally all the same ingredients I typically use in my smoothies. i never thought about putting it in a bowl. That’s a pretty smart idea if I’m staying in for breakfast. On the go I will for sure be sticking to my smoothie tumbler haha.

  3. I am craving a great smoothie right about now. it is hot and putting all those frozen fruits together and topped with granola sounds like a great lunch or treat after dinner. I love a healthy dessert with frozen fruit.

  4. I love smoothie bowls! Easy and quick to make, however I have never thought to add granola on top! That’s a genius idea and I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of it.

    This looks super easy to prepare and it definitely looks yummy. It would be a great replacement for yogurt in the morning.

  7. I’ve tried the bowl before, but keep going back to regular smoothies in a cup so I can walk around with it. I really need to give smoothie bowls a try again because this one looks so delicious! I love the idea of the toppings too!

  8. Your recipe looks and sounds great!!

    I’ve always wanted to try a smoothie bowl. Can you believe I’ve never had one before? It looks both delicious and healthy. Plus, I grow fruit in my garden! All I’d have to do is freeze some 🙂

  10. This pregnancy gave me so many morning sickness and nausea so one of my simple joys is to find easy to prepare snacks or meals. That looks really yummy!

    Oh yum this looks so good. I love smoothie bowls but always struggle with the proportions when I do it myself.

    I really need to try making smoothie bowls… they’re SO perfect for summer (and every other season – let’s face it!). And fruit is my favorite way to start the day.

  13. Trish says:

    I tried something like this at a juice bar and it was good. As soon as I get a blender, I’m going to give this a try.
