One of my favorite go-to breakfast choices is a delicious fruit smoothie. I love how quick and easy they are to make, and how versatile they can be. It’s super easy to add a scoop of protein powder or nut butter to transform your smoothie into some excellent post-workout fuel.
But lately, people have been taking it a step further, and crafting their smoothies into beautiful food masterpieces, topping them with sliced fruit, nuts, seeds, you name it. They are called smoothie bowls, and they look downright delicious. If you enjoy the taste of a smoothie but it doesn’t feel quite like a meal, you should give smoothie bowls a shot.
This was my first attempt at crafting a smoothie bowl, and it turned out to be pretty tasty. I started with a simple strawberry banana smoothie and added some protein powder. I will definitely experiment with other flavor combinations and add those soon!
Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie Bowl
- 1 banana, sliced (save a few slices for toppings)
- 1 cup strawberries (about 5-6 medium sized berries)
- 1 cup almond milk (I use almond milk, but feel free to use whatever type milk you prefer)
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Swiig Mediterranean Vanilla Plant Protein)
Slice the bananas and strawberries, and freeze them overnight. Combine all the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. Next is the fun part: add your favorite toppings! This is where you can get creative. I topped my smoothie bowl with strawberry and banana slices, chia seeds, and granola.
