This smoothie bowl recipe is perfect for breakfast and also makes a yummy healthy dessert option!
I used frozen mixed berries for this recipe, but you are welcome to use any type of fruit that you’d like.
How To Create The Base of the Smoothie Bowl:
Once you have all of your ingredients, add your frozen berries, protein powder, milk (almond milk works great too!), honey, and banana to a blender and blend until smooth!
PRO TIP: a frozen banana helps achieve the thick consistency that smoothie bowls are known for!
Once you’ve achieved your desired consistency, add your smoothie mixture to your favorite bowl. I like to use flat bowls for these since they give me more room to add topping to my smoothie.
How To Prepare The Smoothie Bowl:
Once you’ve added the smoothie to your bowl, it’s time to top it with some of your favorite toppings! You can totally get creative here and add whatever toppings you like but for this smoothie bowl, I chose peanut butter, shredded coconut, protein granola, sliced banana, and a drizzle of peanut butter!
The protein granola and peanut butter add in some extra protein, the shredded coconut adds a little bit of healthy fat, and the banana adds some healthy fiber making this protein smoothie bowl a yummy, well-balanced treat!
Storage and Reheating Instructions:
How do I store the protein smoothie bowls?
I highly recommend enjoying the smoothie bowl immediately after preparing it to maintain its consistency and yummy flavor. If you need to store it for a short time you can:
Store in the fridge WITHOUT toppings for up to 24hrs in an airtight container to preserve freshness.
Be mindful that over time the texture of the smoothies bowl may change and the liquid in the smoothies bowl may separate so be sure to stir well before serving.
How many servings does this smoothie bowl make?
This recipe makes enough for 2 smoothie bowls.
