When I went to Vancouver this past winter, I had the most amazing Acai bowl and I have been on the hunt to find places in Toronto that offer it. Last weekend, we went to this amazing vegan cafe called Sorelle and Co. in Vaughan and they had some smoothie bowls. Again I was so impressed and now I want to see if this is something I can make at home myself! Smoothie bowls are so delicious and healthy and so fun to eat with the beautiful toppings and I think you will love this berry banana smoothie bowl recipe!
The key to an amazing smoothie bowl is to make sure most of your ingredients are frozen so that the smoothie is thick. So you will not need any liquid in the recipe. The one I am sharing with you all today is just 3 ingredients: frozen berries, frozen bananas and yogurt. It’s basically a nice cream! But if you are looking for a smoothie recipe (try my favourite one here) and not into eating a smoothie, just add a half cup of milk and you have yourself a smoothie instead of a berry banana smoothie bowl!
The thing that makes the smoothie bowl so much more impressive is the toppings! That is why your smoothie needs to be thick so that the toppings don’t just sink into the bowl! Another tip I learned is to layer on your least heaviest toppings first, and then add your heavier ones like the bananas!
Okay, now on to the recipe!
1 cup frozen berries
1/2 cup vegan yogurt (try the yoso brand)
1 cup frozen bananas
Nature’s Path Love Crunch granola (thanks to my sister for introducing me to this)
Place your frozen bananas, frozen berries and yogurt into a high powered blender and blend until smooth. I love my copper Vitamix!
Pour the smoothie into a bowl and use a spoon to even it out.
Now add in your toppings, starting with the lightest one first.
Make whatever design you like!
Now add in a spoon and enjoy!
This recipe is so quick and easy and probably the funnest one on the blog!
