Ultimate Green Smoothie Bowl


If you are new to smoothie bowls, they typically have a much thicker consistency than a normal smoothie, are eaten with a spoon and topped with a variety of toppings for added texture and flavors.

The fact that you’re eating the smoothie bowl with a spoon (and chewing the toppings) helps slow down the eating process, promotes digestion and makes the smoothie more filling.

It comes together in no time at all… just add everything to a blender and blend until smooth! Pour it into a bowl and add your toppings. It’s perfect for a quick breakfast or snack!

The thick consistency and sweetness almost makes it feel like your eating soft serve ice cream.

This bowl is totally customizable – feel free to switch up the smoothie ingredients and get creative with the toppings.

Green Smoothie Bowl Variations

Don’t love bananas? You can try swapping the frozen banana for frozen peaches, more frozen mango or even frozen zucchini or cauliflower. If you use the zucchini or cauliflower you may want to add a little maple syrup, medjool dates or honey for extra sweetness.

Swap the mango: Don’t have frozen mango on hand? Frozen pineapple or peaches would be a good substitute.

Use a different green: If you don’t have spinach on hand any leafy green like kale would work well.

Add protein: Want to add protein to this smoothie bowl? Add some Greek yogurt, protein powder or nut butter!

Use a different liquid: Feel free to use plain water for the liquid in this smoothie bowl Any type of milk, almond or coconut milk, but any type of milk will work.

Add flavor enhancers: Add even more flavor to this smoothie bowl by adding a pinch of cinnamon or a splash of vanilla extra.

The Best Part = Toppings

Okay, this is the fun part and the options are truly endless here! Get creative with your smoothie bowl toppings. Here are some of my go-to toppings:

Banana – banana lovers, add banana slices on top!

Kiwi – kiwi slices pair perfectly on top of this bowl. Fresh mango, peaches or really any fresh fruit would also be delicious!

Berries – I like using a combination of fresh raspberries, strawberries and/or blueberries, but any combo of fresh berries work!

Granola – want to add some texture to your smoothie bowl? Add crunchy granola on top! Try my hemp granola, almond coconut granola or this grain free granola.

Chia seeds – add in healthy fats, fiber and texture with more chia seeds on top. Flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds or hemp seeds would be a good substitute.

Shredded coconut –  Add shredded coconut or toasted coconut for added sweetness and crunch!

Nuts – nuts add the perfect amount of crunch to smoothie bowls. I prefer walnuts, cashews or almonds.
