What is a smoothie bowl?
A smoothie bowl is simply a thick smoothie poured into a bowl and then topped with toppings.
Instead of using a straw, you use a spoon to help spoon up all the goodness.
The thing I love most about a smoothie bowl is the ability to top my smoothie with all. the. toppings.
It’s so delicious!
How do I make a smoothie bowl?
For any smoothie bowl, you’re looking for to make an extra thick smoothie.
That way it’s easy to spoon it up and it can support all the toppings without being too watery.
For this cranberry smoothie bowl you’ll need the following:
- Frozen cranberries – you want to make sure to use frozen fresh cranberries. They are very tart but filled with antioxidant.
- Frozen wild berries – I used a basical frozen wild berry blend that I got from the grocery store. My version combined strawberry, raspberries, and blackberries.
- Banana – Use a ripe fresh or a frozen banana.
- Almond milk – This is what you’ll use to blend it all together. You can really use whatever liquid you like – cows milk, oatmilk, rice milk, soy milk, coconut milk, or cashew milk.
- Toppings – for this bowl I used coconut, almonds, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, and chia seeds. You can swap out and use whatever toppings you love. Any nuts or seeds will work here.
What changes can I make to this recipe?
You can easily swap out the mixed berries for another sweeter fruit like strawberries, peaches, or mango.
The liquid I used for this smoothie bowl was almond milk but you can use whatever dairy or non-dairy milk that you like. Yogurt will work as well BUT you might need to add a little water to thin it out.
Lastly, use whatever toppings you love. Some great ideas are flax seeds, any other nut such as walnuts or hazelnuts, granola, or even a dollop of nut butter would be delicious!
How do I store leftover smoothie?
I store any leftover smoothie bowl in the fridge and eat within a day.
