Smoothie bowls are tasty little treats filled with literal goodness. A thick base of blended frozen fruit starts the process. From there, it’s undoubtedly time to garnish with freshly cut fruit slices, granola for crunch, and handfuls of super foods. Everything comes together to make one flavorful breakfast that seriously anyone would enjoy.
So, this smoothie bowl kick isn’t new. I’ve loved these things for a while. But here’s my problem…purchasing them from people who sell them in a shop get expensive. The average cost for some of the bowls I’ve gotten are anywhere from $7 to $14 bucks. A little pricey don’t you think?! Unfortunately, with all the packed nutrients and ingredients, it’s reasonable for retailers to sell at this price-point. My wallet just can’t keep up!
Because this breakfast is probably my most eaten meal at the moment, I wanted to share a recipe I’ve been making at home. It’s similar to what you’d buy at a smoothie place but portion controlled with ingredients bought in bulk (this way we can make more than one yummy bowl).
The above bowl was purchased at a shop in my area. Here are the things we need to make a near copy of this!
Banana (frozen and fresh)
Strawberries (frozen and fresh)
Natural Valley Granola
Honey or agave
Start by blending your frozen blueberries, banana, and strawberries with roughly 1/2 to a cup of your chosen milk. Pulse the mixture until thick.
Near the end of the blending, add in 1 tbsp of peanut butter. If peanut butter isn’t your fav, you can always opt for almond butter! Whatever you choose, blend the mixture again until smooth.
Transfer your smoothie into a bowl and begin slicing/topping with fresh banana and strawberries.
Lay granola for crunch + flax seeds and coconut flakes to enhance your taste.
Lastly, drizzle honey or agave across the bowl for added sweetness!
