Prepare a tasty base and personalize to your liking with the beginner’s guide to the perfect smoothie bowl!



  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, or dairy-free for a vegan option
  • 1/2 cup milk or dairy-free milk (I used almond milk, but any kind will work.)
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • (optional) Add a scoop of vanilla protein powder, or a heaping tablespoon of nut butter for extra protein


You can use any toppings you want in your smoothie bowl! But if you’re looking for inspiration, here are a few options:

  • Coconut shavings
  • Cocoa nibs, dark chocolate shavings
  • Nut butter (Yes, you can put some in your smoothie and on top!)
  • Go nuts: almond slices, walnut crumbles, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc.
  • Berries: blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, etc.
  • Something sweet: honey, maple syrup, agave nectar
  • Dried fruit: dried cranberries, mango, pineapple, apricot, etc.
  • Other options: granola, healthy cereals, graham cracker crumbs


  1. Blend together yogurt, milk, frozen strawberries, banana, and protein.
  2. Add ice, blending again until smooth. Pour into a bowl.
  3. Arrange the large toppings first in whatever way looks good to you! Perhaps layer dried fruit in a circular pattern, or create an arrangement of berries. Get creative!
  4. Add smaller toppings next, sprinkling over the bowl, or placing however you’d like.
  5. Add in the liquid toppings by drizzling in a lattice or swirl pattern.

The last step of creating your smoothie bowl is of course, to enjoy! Dig into your tasty breakfast, or pause to take a photo of your creation! Experiment with different toppings and find your perfect match with this beginner’s guide to the perfect smoothie bowl!
