Strawberry Smoothie Bowl Recipe

This strawberry smoothie bowl is a perfectly balanced way to start your day (or add it as a snack!). With bananas, strawberries, Greek yogurt, and milk, this smoothie is so easy to put together with just a short list of ingredients. You get a punch of vitamin C and other antioxidants, potassium, fiber, and protein all in one bowl. It truly tastes like creamy, soft serve ice cream, but without all the added sugar!

What is a smoothie bowl?

A smoothie bowl carries the nutrient-density of a smoothie, but is thick enough to eat with a spoon. Smoothie bowls can also be topped with a variety of mix-ins–fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, and granola are some of my favorites!

Strawberry Smoothie Ingredients

To make this easy strawberry smoothie bowl, you just need a few simple and fresh ingredients, plus whatever toppings you desire! Here’s what you’ll need:

Strawberry smoothie ingredients on a wooden cutting board with ingredient labels written in white letters.
  • Strawberries – hence the name, you’ll need 2 cups of frozen strawberries to create the flavor base of this smoothie. 
  • Banana – for extra thickness, add 1 sliced banana.
  • Greek Yogurt – for tanginess and protein, a ½ cup of Greek yogurt heads into the blender next.
  • Milk – add a ½ cup of your milk of choice (whole milk, almond milk, oat milk, whichever you choose!) rounds out the ingredients.
  • Toppings (optional, but highly recommended) – for added texture, add your toppings of choice! My favorites include sliced banana, sliced strawberries, granola, and chia seeds. 

Optional Add-Ins

  • Protein Powder – if you’re looking for an added protein boost (in addition to the Greek yogurt), add a scoop of your favorite protein or collagen powder.
  • Flaxseed, Chia, or Nut Butter – for some healthy fats, add ground flaxseed, chia, or a nut butter (like peanut or almond butter). Not only will the fats keep you satiated longer, but they also help your body absorb vitamins more effectively. 
  • Leafy Greens – a handful of spinach adds to the fiber content and aids with digestion.

Is this smoothie bowl healthy?

Yes! I think so. The fruit, Greek yogurt, and milk provide for a healthy, well rounded snack or meal with no added sugars or sweeteners. 

  • Vitamins – strawberries and bananas are high in vitamin C and potassium and are an excellent source of many other vitamins. Strawberries contain magnesium, phosphorous, calcium, potassium, folate, and vitamin K, while bananas are a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin B6.
  • Antioxidants – both bananas and strawberries are rich in antioxidants that can help neutralize free radicals in the body.
  • Low-Glycemic – strawberries are also a low-glycemic fruit making them a great option for those who need to control or reduce their glucose levels.
  • Greek yogurt – Greek yogurt is protein-rich, high in calcium, and contains probiotics to support gut health.

The Key to Thick Smoothie Bowls

There are a few things you can do to make a thick smoothie bowl:

  • Use frozen fruit – the icy consistency helps keep your fruits from foaming and also adds a thicker consistency to your smoothie bowl. Use either frozen fruit or freeze your fresh fruit for 24 hours before making your smoothie.
  • Bananas – specifically, bananas are a key fruit that help thicken the texture.
  • Use less liquid –  the combination of Greek yogurt and milk help keep the consistency thicker.
  • High quality blender – this has a big impact on achieving the thickest, smoothest puree.

Smoothie Bowl Topping Ideas

Arguably my favorite part of a smoothie bowl is the toppings! There are truly limitless options that will add additional flavor, texture, nutrients, and FUN! Here are some ideas:

  • Granola – adds great flavor and crunch (like Purely Elizabeth)
  • Fresh Fruit – sliced strawberries and bananas bring extra fresh fruit flavor
  • Chia Seeds – add additional fiber and antioxidants
  • Nuts – sliced almonds or toasted coconut flakes make for a delicious add of healthy fats

    Could you make these a head of time or is it best to do it each morning?

    1. Melissa Guevara says:

      You can definitely make these ahead of time and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. The texture and consistency (thick and creamy) will be best right after it is blended from the frozen ingredients. Freezer smoothie bowl packs are an easy way to cut down on time in the morning if you have the time to blend in the morning. Just freeze all the ingredients (without the milk) and store in a freezer bag or container, then dump in the blender with the milk morning of and blend. ~Melissa
