Easy Banana & Berry Smoothie Bowl

I have been meaning to post a smoothie bowl recipe for quite some time now and today I finally did it! It almost seems un-foodblogger-like not to have a smoothie bowl recipe since they are one of the hottest items in the food world right now. I am starting off very simple with a easy Banana & Berry smoothie bowl. It’s easy to make and uses simple ingredients.

Smoothie bowls are basically thick smoothies served in a bowl. Whoever came up with this idea deserves props as the bowls are so much fun and are a great alternative to the drinkable smoothies. From my research online the bowl frenzy started with Acai bowls which originated in Brazil and later made their way to San Francisco. Since then, there have been so many variations of the bowls but one thing that can’t be denied is how delicious and good for you they are.

Thanks to Instagram, smoothie bowls have also become a trendy food. If you just type the words smoothie bowl on Instagram you will find the prettiest and artistically decorated smoothie bowls out there. Sometimes they look too pretty, you wonder if the person who made it actually ate it. My only problem with those perfect smoothie bowls is that they are unrealistic. Nobody has time to add pretty flowers and sprinkles to their food. This is why it was important to me that the recipe I share today includes day to day ingredients that can easily be found.

For this smoothie bowl I used frozen bananas, frozen berries and almond milk. Frozen fruit works better for smoothies in my opinion but you can certainly use fresh fruit. I love the texture that frozen fruit brings to smoothies. I also used almond milk instead of cow’s milk because I wanted a smoothie that wasn’t too creamy but had more of a sorbet taste. For those days when I want a really creamy smoothie, I use milk instead.

This easy banana & berry smoothie bowl is ready in less than 5 minutes. I topped it with pre-sliced fruit for convenience sake but if you want to save money I suggest cutting the fruit yourself. Sometimes I find pre-sliced fruit worth the extra bucks since my time is so limited. If you are looking for more inspiration check out my Easy Citrus Sour Cream Mousse Recipe too!
