How To Make The Best Smoothie Bowls

Smoothie Bowls are taking the world by storm, and we aren't surprised. They are super delicious and a great opportunity to get lots of different foods and nutrients into your diet!

Start the day with a nourishing breakfast bowl, bursting with flavour and vibrant colours! Smoothie bowls will leave you feeling energised and ready for the day.

Are Smoothie Bowls actually healthy?

Smoothie bowls share a lot of the same health benefits as regular smoothies, but it is important to note that there is such thing as too much of a good thing. Whilst smoothie bowls can be inherently healthy, try not to overdo it with large portions.

Recipe Ideas

You can experiment with lots of different ingredients for the smoothie mixture and the toppings, such as:

  • Berries such as raspberries, blackberries and blueberries
  • Fresh pineapple of diced mango
  • Sliced bananas
  • Sliced peaches, plums or pears
  • Seeds such as chia seeds, flax seeds and hemp
  • Chopped or sliced nuts such as almonds, pecans, walnuts, cashews and macadamia nuts

To thicken up your smoothie bowl, the best option is to use frozen fruit but you can also also ice if desired.
