My Top 4 Smoothie Bowl Recipes

I’m constantly craving ice-cream (it’s one of my favorite foods!), but I often get a stomach ache or a sugar crash after eating it. Smoothie bowls, on the other hand, are packed with real fruit and other nutrient dense ingredients making them my perfect ice-cream replacement. They quench my sweet tooth without leaving me feeling icky, which is definitely better in the long run. Don’t get me wrong…I am in no way giving up ice-cream! Strawberry with chocolate sprinkles is just WAY too good šŸ™‚ ! Ā But anyway.. I decided to create a post with my top 4 favorite smoothie bowl recipes for you guys.Ā Hope you enjoy!

1.Pineapple Mango Banana

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 3/4-1 cup milk—depending on what consistency you preferĀ (you can use almond milk, coconut milk, regular milk, etc)
  • Toppings: banana slices, Oat & Honey Granola from Whole Foods Market (but you can obvi use any kind!), semisweet choc chips

First, add all of the fruit plus 1/2 cup of milk to the blender. Then, blend the ingredients together, add another 1/4 cup milk, blend, and then either stop or add the remaining 1/4 cup of milk. Then, add your toppings and enjoy!

2. Berry Mango

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup milk (you can use almond milk, coconut milk, regular milk, etc)
  • Toppings: unsweetened shredded coconut, frozen blueberries

Add all of the fruit plus 1/2 cup of milk to blender, blend, then add the remaining 1/2 cup of milk, blend, enjoy!

3. Strawberry Banana

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 3/4-1 cup of milk (depending on what consistency you would like)
  • Toppings: unsweetened shredded coconut, almonds, Justin’s dark chocolate PB cups.

4. Strawberry Pineapple Mango

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1 cup milkĀ (you can use almond milk, coconut milk, regular milk, etc)
  • Toppings: Frozen blueberries, Oat & Honey Granola.

So there you have it! My favorite recipes are definitely the Pineapple Mango Banana and the Berry Mango, but they are all really delicious! They’re very easy to make and super versatile. However, I do recommend using a decent blender because it helps achieve the proper consistency. I use a BlendtecĀ and I absolutely LOVE it, but there are many other varieties that would work. Just make sure it’s relatively strong and durable because in order to achieve the thick consistency you need a blender that can blend the frozen fruit with less liquid than a smoothie.
