Recipe: Smoothie bowl

In the following, I’ll show you how to create an easy, yummy smoothie bowl.
For this you need:

  • 3-4 bananas, best slightly ripped
  • two handful frozen raspberries
  • juice of half a lime
  • some vanilla extract
  • half a pineapple
  • fresh berries (blueberry, raspberry, strawberry)
  • coconut water/milk (for smoothies I often use canned coco milk, cause it has a solid part)

And for the topping:

  • Granola, chia seeds, puffed amaranth, coco greater, other nuts and seeds (I prefer sunflower, pumpkin, and  pignolia)
  • fresh berries/fruits
  • Oreo biscuits (yes, they are vegan)


How to make the smoothie bowl:

First, peel the bananas and break into small pieces cut the lime and press the juice out. Also, cut the pineapple into small bits. Now load all ingredients into your blender. If you don’t have a blender you can also use an immersion blender or mixer.
You want the smoothie to be relatively solid, so it doesn’t run from your spoon. When it’s too runny you can add more frozen fruits or ice, when you like it more slurry just add water or coconut water.
Blend everything together into a smooth mash and fill it into a nice bowl or deep / soup plate.

Now you can decorate your smoothie bowl to give it the extra pop and crunch.
Often I cut another banana into small slices and drop them around the rim of the bowl. Then I sprinkle nuts, seeds and coco grater inside the banana trim. Finally, I spread fresh berries, granola and sometimes crumbled Oreos in the middle, often I try to create a little mandala.

You see it’s super easy and quick to create a beautiful fresh smoothie bowl. Simple for everyday breakfast or as a healthy dessert alternative. Of course, you can use other fruits and berries, something that is in season or you prefer. I would recommend using bananas and frozen fruits for the base. Often I use frozen blueberries or strawberries (but my favorite is with frozen raspberries).
