11 Breakfast Smoothie Bowls That Will Make You Feel Amazing (17 pics)

breakfast smoothie bowls that will make you feel amazing

Smoothie bowls are what they sound like, but they’re better. You can create pretty much any combo of flavors that you want and then top it with your favorite fruits and other crunchy things like cereal and nuts. This means it’s more satisfying than a regular smoothie because you can’t down it 10 seconds.

Smoothie bowls are a huge thing on Instagram and are super trendy because they are so pretty. If you’ve gotten hooked on açai bowls at your local juice shop, these are basically the same thing. A smoothie bowl is just an açai bowl without the açai.

PRO TIP: If you want to make a pretty design, add the heaviest ingredients last.

1. Strawberries ‘n’ Cream Smoothie Bowl

Scale the toppings up or down on this one depending on what you have on hand. Get the recipe at the bottom of the post.

2. Pineapple, Banana, and Peach Smoothie Bowl

Dessert-for-breakfast types, this one’s for you. To make the smoothie, blend banana, raspberries, soy milk, ice, almond butter, and honey. The toppings are strawberries, raspberries, granola, coconut, and a drizzle of honey.

Hemp seeds sound really weird, but they’re a great source of protein with a nutty flavor. Look for them near the sunflower seeds and almonds in your grocery store. Get the recipe at the bottom of the post.

6. Mixed Berry Smoothie Bowl

11. Coconut Açai Smoothie Bowl

To make the smoothie, blend açai, banana, coconut water, chia seeds, and agave syrup. The toppings are dried mulberries, blackberries, apple, and a drizzle of agave.

You can find single-serving packs of 100% açai in the freezer aisle. If you can’t find it, just substitute about 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries. Get the recipe at the bottom of the post.

HOW TO MIX + MATCH YOUR OWN: If you don’t see a recipe you like on this list, it’s pretty easy to create your own combination. Start with 1 cup of any frozen fruit and a banana.

Nut butters add protein and body to the bowls, and natural sweeteners will boost the flavor.

Then you can top your bowl with pretty much anything. Nuts, seeds, cereals, and dried fruit all work well.
