This Banana Berry Smoothie Bowl recipe is a delicious breakfast treat or healthy afternoon pick-me-up. This smoothie bowl is easy to make and delicious too!

You seriously can’t go anywhere without hearing someone talk about a smoothie, smoothie bowl, or seeing one listed on a restaurant menu. Over the years I’ve tried my share of smoothies. While I certainly enjoy them and totally understand and appreciate the health benefits, I sometimes just miss actually eating something. Do you know what I mean? I realize it’s all in my head, but there’s something about sitting down and eating that’s much more appealing to me than drinking out of a glass.

Thankfully, I’m not the only one with this issue. Some smarty-pants decided to serve a smoothie in a bowl and top it with yummy little bits. (Thank you, Smarty-pants!) With just a few simple changes, a drink becomes a meal and I’m not mad about it.

Naturally I had to give it a try and share my results here.

How to Make a Smoothie Bowl:

Obviously, you can use your favorite smoothie recipe and top it with whatever complementary yummy little bits you love best. However, maybe you don’t have a favorite smoothie recipe, so I thought I’d share mine with you.

I’m making a Berry Banana Smootie Bowl. For this recipe it’s best to use frozen fruit to give your smoothie a thicker texture. It’s just easier to eat that way and it makes it a bit colder – which I like. I would even say you might want to freeze the banana (peel it before freezing) to make the smoothie even thicker.

Also, you’ll notice there is spinach in this recipe. I really like to add spinach to any smoothie I make. It just makes the whole thing healthier and you can’t even taste it.

What do you put on top of a Smoothie Bowl:

Once your smoothie is blended, just pour it into a bowl and garnish. I created little lines of toppings on my smoothie to make it look pretty. It takes a little extra time, but it makes eating it so much more special.

Again, use whatever you like to top the smoothie. I chose some healthier options. Other ideas could be coconut flakes, pineapple, any kind of nut, honey, etc.

Let’s blend one up.

    If you’re ever in the Bay Area, California, I highly suggest you try Bare Bowls! (http://barebowls.com/menu/ ) They do wonderful smoothies in a bowl that are absolutely delicious (though homemade is always best!).
