Smoothie toppings (see below for ideas)
One of my favorite things about a smoothie bowl is you follow the basic recipe, but you can use any of your favorite fruits. The toppings are completely up to you. It can be anything you have in your pantry that will work.
Some great topping ideas for smoothie bowls are:
- fresh berries
- other fresh fruit such as kiwi, peaches, and bananas
- chopped nuts such as pistachios, pecans, walnuts, and almonds
- chia seed, hemp seed, pumpkin seed, or flax seed
- toasted unsweetened coconut flakes or coconut chips
- chocolate chips or cocoa nibs
- Place the serving bowls in the freezer at least an 15 minutes prior to making the berry smoothie bowl.
- Prep the toppings and line them up so they are ready to add to the bowl once the smoothie has been blended.
- Place the frozen fruit, yogurt, milk, and sweetener in the blender.
- Process the fruit mixture until smooth and no frozen chunks of fruit remain.
- Transfer the berry smoothie to the frozen bowls.
- Top with a variety of toppings to your liking. See the smoothie topping suggestions for ideas.
Make it Vegan
Smoothie Bowls can be vegetarian or vegan. This particular recipe is a vegetarian recipe due to the fact that I used milk and greek yogurt. However, it can easily be made vegan by making substituting the milk and yogurt for a non-dairy ingredient.
Non-dairy milks are a plenty nowadays. Try substituting cashew milk (my personal favorite), almond milk, coconut milk, or oat milk.
Vegan substitutes for yogurt are more popular than ever and can be found in the same area you would find regular yogurt. These yogurts are made with the same non-dairy milks listed above.
💭 Top Tips
- Freeze the serving bowl prior to assembling the smoothie to prevent quick melting.
- Prep all of the toppings prior to blending the smoothie.
- Using frozen fruit eliminates the need for ice which waters down the flavor of the smoothie bowl.
📖 Smoothie Base Variations
- Substitute other frozen fruit mixes in place of berries such as bananas, peaches, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, pineapple, or mango.
- Make a smoothie with powerful color. Try a dragon fruit blend or a smoothie with spinach, and use the toppings to add contrast.
- Substitute the honey or maple syrup with a sugar free syrup product from this company. (use code grumpyshoneybunch for 10% off your order)
