Strawberries and bananas blended to frozen perfection topped with fresh fruit, granola, slivered almonds, and coconut (or any toppings you love). Strawberry Banana Breakfast Smoothie Bowl is all sorts of delish.
Strawberry Banana Breakfast Smoothie Bowl
During the summer I love a cold breakfast. Cereal and yogurt, my old breakfast staples, are no longer an option because I’ve given up dairy and grains while I work to heal my gut. One magical morning, while scanning Pinterest, I discovered the notion of Smoothie Breakfast Bowls – MIND BLOWN! It’s no secret I love a smoothie, heck I spent 13 years helping clients make every possible frozen concoction imaginable. Why have I never made a smoothie bowl?!?
Smoothie bowls are the best of both worlds. I love frozen drinks but I prefer to EAT my breakfast. I’m one of those people who never feel full until I’ve actually chewed my food. Making a bowl lets me have my smoothie and eat it too;)
Smoothie Breakfast Bowl Awesomeness:

- Whole food
- Nutritious and delicious

Make It Your Own
You can create your own sensational smoothie bowl. Here are some variations:
- Fruit – swap out strawberries for blueberries, raspberries, mixed berries
- Milk – I used 1/3 cup canned coconut milk, but you can use any milk you like (almond, cashew, etc)
- Crunch – I used Bare Banana Chips. Other ideas; dried fruit, granola, chopped nuts
- Sweet – Add 1 tsp honey or maple syrup for an extra kiss of sweetness
- Chocolate – top with a few diary free chocolate chips or dark chocolate squares
1 frozen banana and 1 cup frozen strawberries.
Blend until the fruit looks like dipping dots.
Add 1/3 cup canned coconut milk (or other milk)
Blend until creamy – it may take up to 2 minutes depending on the power of your blender or food processor. Stop every 30 seconds to scrape down the sides.
