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:
- 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.
- 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.

How to Make a Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl
The process is SO easy, you’ll be able to whip up your fulfilling smoothie bowl in a matter of minutes and only dirty one container! Here’s how to make your smoothie bowl:

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
