Have you had a smoothie bowl yet? This Strawberry Smoothie Bowl is delicious and makes for a healthy breakfast, lunch or snack! There are so many options to personalize your own smoothie bowl too. See below for some ideas!
Ingredients for Strawberry Smoothie Bowl Recipe
This recipe only requires a handful of ingredients to make the smoothie bowl base and then you can choose your toppings if you prefer something different from what we used. For this recipe you will need:
- frozen banana- see my tip below for how to store bananas in the freezer
- frozen strawberries- buy frozen or freeze fresh strawberries after you buy them (this is great to do while strawberries are in season!)
- flax seed- already ground or whole flax seeds can be used for this recipe
- milk- use non-dairy milk or regular milk
- fresh strawberries, for topping
- granola, for topping- we made our Dark Chocolate Coconut Granola for this recipe
- unsweetened coconut flakes, for topping
If you prefer other toppings check out our list below for some more ideas!
Tip: When my bananas at home get to be too brown for what I will eat I stick them into the freezer. I like to peel and slice in the half the ones I will later use for smoothies. If you keep them in a freezer bag they should stay good for a couple months. I also keep another stash of bananas in the peel for baking things like Banana Bread. See How to Store Ripe Bananas for more information.
How to Make a Strawberry Smoothie Bowl
Then, gather your ingredients: a frozen banana, frozen strawberries, flax seed and milk. If you want a thick smoothie bowl slowly add the liquid a little at a time until you get the consistency you prefer.
Blend all the ingredients until smooth and then pour into a big bowl and get ready to top it! We topped ours with fresh sliced strawberries, granola and unsweetened coconut flakes.
Topping a Smoothie Bowl
We topped our Strawberry Smoothie Bowls with fresh sliced strawberries, Back to Nature Dark Chocolate Coconut Granola, and unsweetened coconut flakes. There are lots of options if you prefer to try something different:
- Other berries or fresh fruit: blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, banana, kiwi, mango, etc.
- Chopped nuts
- Chocolate chips
- More flax seed or chia seeds
- Peanut butter or other nut butter
Use any toppings you prefer to make a smoothie bowl you will love! The options are endless.
