10 Healthy and Gorgeous Smoothie Bowls That Give You a Morning Headstart

Have you experienced a smoothie bowl yet? Smoothie bowls are one of the recent breakfast trends that are becoming highly popular and addictive — and for a good reason. Packed with delicious tropical fruit, leafy greens, and a dash of creamy avocado, these super-bowls are filling, nutrient-packed, and most importantly, they taste absolutely delicious.

Building off of the nutritious and healthy green smoothies, a smoothie bowl is eaten with a spoon due to the extra thick texture, making it the healthiest and easiest way to turn a smoothie into a meal. You can make them into even more of a complete meal with the addition of a few simple ingredients into the blend, and toppings like sesame seeds or goji berries, which add to the superfood ingredients list as well as a wonderful crunch that is so missing in green smoothies.

The simple rules of a smoothie bowl include blending 1–2 servings of ingredients such as the following:

1. Liquid

  • filtered water
  • coconut water
  • full cream milk
  • almond milk or any non-dairy preference

2. Fruit

  • bananas
  • berries
  • pineapple
  • pears
  • mango

3. Greens

  • kale
  • spinach
  • silverbeet
  • broccoli stem

4. Protein

  • nut butters
  • hemp powder
  • tahini

What makes the smoothie bowl even more exciting is the delicious toppings, such as goji berries, hemp seeds, blueberries, sesame seeds, edible fruit, bee pollen, and granola.

Smooth Bowl Recipes

1. Green Smoothie Bowl

    This a new twist on the simple green smoothie that you know so well. The basis of this smoothie bowl is to make a slightly thicker, more nutritious smoothie by adding ingredients such as avocado and hemp powder, and then top it with some crunchy ingredients, like coconut, hemp seeds, and pine nuts.

      This smoothie bowl has a fantastic kick to it thanks to the wonderful twist of adding beetroot juice. Beetroot, otherwise knows as beets, are rich in natural chemicals called nitrates. Through a chain reaction, your body changes nitrates into nitric oxide, which helps relax blood vessels, thus assisting with blood flow and blood pressure.

      3. Kiwi Breakfast Bowl

        I absolutely love this recipe due to its simplicity, availability of produce, taste, and texture.

        Using a banana frozen makes this a devilish creamy blend that the whole family will love. It is also quick and easy to prepare for breakfast you will wonder why you never thought of it before now. Kiwi is packed with vitamin C which is mostly concentrated just beneath the skin, so be sure to blend up the whole fruit in this recipe.

        4. “Zero Waste” Turmeric, Avocado, Banana Smoothie Bowl

          There’s more to turmeric than spicing up a curry. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, stimulates the gallbladder and produces bile. Because bile helps digest fat, experts believe this can help improve digestion and may help control weight. Other benefits include easing indigestion and reducing symptoms of bloating and gas. This smoothie bowl can be enjoyed any time of day.

          5. Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl

            The title of this smoothie bowl can be quite deceiving seeing as it does not contain any blueberries, which is what you may be expecting. What I love about this smoothie bowl is the addition of a frozen zucchini. In the summer months when zucchini are plentiful, I store excess zucchini in the freezer ensuring a plentiful supply in the winter months.

            Zucchini are an excellent source of dietary fibre and this smoothie bowl is a great way way of ensuring your green vegetable intake at least twice a week, as I am sure that once you try this recipe, you will be adding more frozen zucchini to other smoothie bowl recipes.

            6. Berry Banana Smoothie Bowl

              This simple smoothie bowl is a mixture of almond milk, a frozen banana, frozen mixed berries, and fresh spinach. All the work seems to go into the topping. Adding nuts to the topping increases the protein content and fruits for flavor making this a wickedly delicious way of sneaking in spinach for those less inclined to eat spinach or any other leafy greens.

              7. Strawberry Flax Smoothie Bowl

                Packed with powerful hemp seeds and ground flax seeds makes this a hight-protein, high-omega smoothie bowl.

                Make sure to grind your own flax seeds to make the ground flax seed to ensure high protein and omega content. Store-bought ground flaxseed is simply the end pulp after the nutritious omega 3 essential fats has been removed to create flax oil.

                  There always has to be a chocolate recipe in a foodie post and smoothie bowls is no exception.

                    What I like about this recipe are the ideas of what to put on top of your next smoothie bowl. Above you can see every single idea imaginable. Here is the list of toppings added to create such a wonderful blend. You do not need to go to such lengths as just adding three ingredients as your topping is a great start to the day. Goji berries, chia seeds, hemp seeds, bee pollen, raw activated almonds, sliced figs, coconut shreds, edible flowers (such as cornflower or marigold) blueberry jam, kumquats, pumpkin seeds, and sesame seeds are all included in this smoothie bowl.

                    10. Vegan Papaya Acai Smoothie Bowl

                      Papaya fruit contains papain, an enzyme that helps digest proteins, making this smoothie bowl a delicious dessert to help assist in digesting an evening meal.
