Hello dear smoothie lovers! 🙋🏻

Today I want to share my recipe for a Strawberry Smoothie Bowl with you. Strawberry smoothies simply look wonderful and, to me, they are the perfect summer smoothies. Strawberry smoothies are also rather healthy since they contain useful vitamins; most notably vitamin C, but also small amounts of B vitamins.

The recipe for this smoothie is quite simple: all you need is strawberries, a banana, some granola, peanut butter and coconut milk. The coconut milk can be swapped for normal milk, but, in my opinion, that won’t be as tasty.

The toppings on this smoothie bowl are the following: strawberries, banana slices, granola (you could use oatmeal, too), dark chocolate, coconut chips, black sesame seeds, almond nuts, dried cranberries and fresh mint. The granola and other toppings make the smoothie pleasantly crunchy—and beautiful 😄 To be honest, decorating a smoothie bowl is almost like some sort of color therapy: combining different elements into an edible piece of art calms me down when I’m stressed.

You can definitely leave out some of the toppings I’ve used, but I wouldn’t strip it down more than necessary. After all, the toppings are what makes smoothie bowls special. So if you don’t want to use lots of toppings—or if you don’t happen to have them at home—just make a normal smoothie in a glass instead.

Tip: If possible, use a frozen banana. This will make the consistency of your smoothie resemble that of melted ice cream. I tend to keep a banana or two in the freezer, just in case.

A colorful, aromatic and super delicious smoothie bowl made with fresh strawberries. It makes a perfect breakfast and could even replace lunch or dinner. This smoothie is rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals, so you will feel satisfied for a long time.

Course: Breakfast, Main Course
Servings: 2
Calories: 395 kcal
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cup strawberries (~9 oz)
  • 1 banana (preferably frozen)
  • 1/4 cup granola
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (or almond milk)
Instructions
  1. Rinse the strawberries under cold running water. Then gently dry the berries with a paper towel.

  2. Peel the banana. Cut it into chunks. 

  3. If you don't want any chunks in your smoothie bowl, you can first grind granola/oatmeal in the food processor (or coffee grinder). If you are OK with chunks, go to the next step.

  4. Pour the coconut milk into the blender jar. Add all ingredients.

  5. Process until nice and smooth.

  6. Pour the strawberry smoothie into two bowls. Decorate with fruits, berries, nuts and seeds of your choice.


Why this Strawberry Smoothie Bowl is good for you

Remember that granola and peanut butter both contain quite much fat and carbohydrates which make this smoothie bowl high in calories. If you are on a low fat/carbs diet, leave out these two ingredients. The reason why I added them in my smoothie is that they make the smoothie tastier and will keep you satisfied for a long time.

  1. I love that this smoothie has all the ingredients I usually have the in the pantry and freezer all the time. So easy to make and it looks delicious! I’ll definitely be trying this one out for brekkie (I don’t think my toppings will look as beautifully arranged as yours unfortunately).

    • Thank you Kate for stopping by 🙂 I am glad you liked this recipe. It is super delicious. I am glad it’s the strawberry season right now so I can go crazy with strawberry bowls and smoothies. They are just soooo good!
