What I absolutely love about smoothie bowls is the fact that you ca

n add crunchy toppings to them and actually eat it.

On the other hand, when you make a smoothie, there’s no chewing involved.

Not that there’s anything wrong with drinking a smoothie at all!

I love me some traditional smoothies, like my Pumpkin Smoothie, Al Roker’s Basic Berry Smoothie, and my Vanilla Protein Shake with Peaches & Almond Milk!

But sometimes, I just need to chew on my breakfast.

Needless to say, this recipe will have you crunching and chewing to your heart’s content!

the difference between a smoothie and a smoothie bowl

Besides the obvious difference that a smoothie is consumed with a straw and a smoothie bowl requires a spoon, here are other differences between a smoothie and a smoothie bowl:

  • Smoothies are thinner in consistency, while smoothie bowls are a lot thicker and have a lot more texture.
  • Many smoothie recipes include yogurt to enhance their creaminess, whereas smoothie bowls use frozen fruit and less liquids.
  • You can have fun with the toppings you add to a smoothie bowl. On the contrary, a smoothie’s ingredients are all blended up together into liquid form.

Smoothie Bowl Ingredients

To make a smoothie bowl, you just need a handful of ingredients and about 5 minutes to prepare it!

With this recipe, you’ll need:

And for the toppings you’ll need:

  • Sliced banana
  • More shredded coconut
  • Granola

Recipe Ingredients

Step 1: Freeze Your Fruit

Make sure you use frozen blueberries and bananas to achieve a thicker smoothie bowl.

But be sure to peel and slice your bananas and place them together with the blueberries for at least an hour in the freezer.

Needless to say, if you put a whole banana in the freezer, it will be a lot harder to slice it up.

Step 2: Blend Frozen Fruit, Powder, Chia Seeds & Milk

Blend your ingredients together in a blender, like my favorite NutriBullet, until you achieve a thick, creamy consistency.

Optional: Add two ice cubes to thicken it if needed.

Don’t over blend it because you want it to be a thick, creamy, soft serve ice cream texture.

Serve immediately for the best consistency

Step 3: Top + eat!

Now, all you have to do is pour your smoothie into a bowl and top it with chopped bananas, granola, and shredded coconut.

Pro Tip: Eat immediately after topping it, as it can lose it’s consistency pretty quickly.

The possibilities are endless!
