A berry banana smoothie bowl is a healthy beautiful breakfast or snack

Smoothie bowls are easy to make and differ from smoothies you drink because they are thicker, thanks to the yogurt. You can dress them up with a variety of toppings to give your bowl more substance.

Typically this smoothie bowl is made with a variety of berries, such as blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries. However, feel free to use whatever berries you have on hand. If fresh berries aren’t in season you can replace with frozen berries.

Step by Step for the Perfect Berry Banana Smoothie Bowl

5 minutes is all you need to make the perfect bowl!

I like to get all of my ingredients rinsed and ready to go before I start blending. You’ll want all of your ingredients to be very cold.

Add the ingredients in this order for even blending:

  1. Start with your favorite variety of berries. If using frozen berries you can omit adding any ice to the process.
  2. Add berries and banana to the blender
  3. Top with very cold milk (we use low-fat) or almond milk
  4. Add Greek yogurt. We use plain but vanilla works well too
  5. Pour in honey and sprinkle in chia seeds.
  6. If using, add vanilla extract
  7. Optional – add a 1/4 cup of crushed ice for a super cold bowl.

Adding toppings to your bowl

Smoothie bowls are delicious but sometimes you need a little extra to really make it feel like a meal. There are so many great options available because berries are so adaptable.

Here are a few toppings that work well:

  • Extra berries
  • Nuts such as pecans, walnuts, almonds, and cashews for added protein
  • Seeds – extra chia seeds or sunflower seeds for flavor and protein
  • Shredded toasted coconut
  • Granola
  • An extra drizzle of honey
  • Cinnamon
