🥘 Ingredients Needed
For a complete list of ingredients, please refer to the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
- frozen strawberries - strawberries are the perfect fruit for this smoothie bowl, beautiful and so tasty all on their own!
- ice - gives your smoothie bowl some thickness, as well as keeping it nice and cold.
- almond milk - better for you than dairy milk but just as tasty.
- plain yogurt - gives your smoothie bowl some extra creaminess and flavor.
Please note: This is an overview of the instructions. You'll find the complete instructions in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
- Combine the milk, yogurt, strawberries, and ice in a good blender.
- Blend until everything is smooth and uniform. You may have to pause every so often to scrape the sides of the blender.
- Transfer to a bowl and top with strawberries (fresh, not frozen here), spinach leaves, chia seeds, or whatever toppings you like!
Using frozen fruit is one way to make a thick smoothie bowl, as well as adding more ice or using the least amount of liquid possible. If you still want it thicker, you could also blend in a scoop of raw oats or chia seeds.
While smoothies are on the thinner side so they can be sipped, smoothie bowls are thicker and usually eaten with a spoon. Smoothie bowls can also be served with toppings.
Yes! Because there are only a few base ingredients, it's not hard to see that these strawberry smoothie bowls are good for you. Strawberries, yogurt, and almond milk are all relatively healthy ingredients, and as long as you don't top your smoothie bowl with too much of anything that isn't also healthy, it should make for a nice nutritious dish.
Not necessarily, as long as you're careful to limit the amount of sugar in them. They can be a good source of things like fiber, nutrients, protein, and certain healthy fats. It's all about the ingredients you use at the end of the day!
While this recipe uses almond milk, you could also use something like coconut water, fresh juice, dairy milk, or any other kind of milk substitute. It comes down to flavor and consistency, so try different options and see what works best for you!
This smoothie bowl recipe will last for up to 3 days in the fridge, though the consistency won't be quite as good as when it's fresh made. If you do make your bowl ahead of time, just be sure to leave the toppings off until it's time to eat!
You can also store smoothie bowls in the freezer for several months. When you want to eat, let them sit in the fridge to thaw a bit, but you can allow it to come down to whatever temperature and consistency you prefer!
