Sheree’s Super Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Since my trip to Bali where I tried my first smoothie bowl at this awesome cafe (Alchemy, check out the review here) I have been craving smoothie bowls like there’s no tomorrow. Which makes a change from craving Toffee Crisps, and is much, much healthier. So I thought I’d have a crack at making my own since they are incredibly expensive to buy here in the UK. So here is my recipe, oh and it was DELICIOUS!!!!

3 Steps To Breakfast Heaven

STEP ONE: The Smoothie Base

This is important because it’s the main component of your bowl, your smoothie needs to be thick, a lot thicker than a usual smoothie. So I use bananas because they thicken anything up and they’re cheap, but you can also try avocados, yoghurt (or a dairy free alternative if you’re lactose intolerant like me. Blend everything together in a Nutribullet or blender.

  • 1 Banana
  • Handful Frozen summer fruits
  • Almond milk
  • Manuka Honey

STEP 2: The Fruit

You can use anything here to be honest, just chop up some of your favourite fruit. A good rule of thumb is to try and get a few colours in there because eating the rainbow is,like, sooo good for you. I will suggest melon, it’s so refreshing and a melon will keep for ages in the fridge and make many, many smoothie bowls. Try blueberries, avocado, dragon fruit, peach… anything goes.

  • Melon
  • Strawberries
  • Banana

STEP 3: The Toppings

This is the fun bit and where you can really pack in those nutrients, there are hundreds of things you can sprinkle on top: flaked coconut, bee pollen, cinnamon, almonds, pumpkin seeds, mint, raisins, pecans… so much. The only thing you need is granola because it adds some much needed crunch.

  • Toasted Almond Flakes
  • Mixed Seeds
  • Granola

And there you have it, a nutritious, colourful and tasty smoothie bowl. Obviously go to town on the presentation so you can instagram it with pride.
