I have recently seen smoothies bowls everywhere – on Pinterest, Instagram, and even Buzzfeed. They looked delicious, but I wondered if it would be hard to make. Naturally, I had to try one. So, I went to my neighborhood juice and yogurt bar and tried an acai bowl out. IT WAS DELICIOUS, but I realized that I could make it myself (at a much cheaper price point). This recipe was so easy, filling, and reminded me of my favorite frozen yogurt – Pinkberry. 🙂

What you’ll need:

  • Base

    • Almond Milk
    • Frozen Fruit:
      • Mango
      • Banana
      • Raspberry
      • Blueberry
      • Strawberry
      • Pineapple
  • Toppings

    • Fresh Fruit:
      • Strawberries
      • Banana
      • Rasperries
    • Granola (mine has flaxseeds and almonds in it)
    • Coconut
    • Chia Seeds
    • Goji Berries
    • Local Honey

What you’ll do:

  • Combine the base ingredients – frozen fruit and almond milk.
    • *Frozen fruit works best – if you use fresh fruit, be sure to add ice
  • Blend the yummy ingredients together until you get the consistency of frozen yogurt. I used my immersion blender and it worked just fine.
  • Transfer the smoothie mixture to a bowl, arrange your toppings to taste, and EAT!

I probably ate one of these every evening after work and even tried out a variation with Kale and almond butter. The cool thing about this is that you can make ’em with anything! Try a smoothie bowl out and tell me how you like it. 🙂
