Build Your Own Smoothie Bowl

Build Your Own Smoothie Bowl

Ya’ll, I have been obsessing over smoothie bowls lately! Since quarantine, this has been one of my favorite creative outlets. Not only are they packed with nutrients, but pairing different varieties of flavors certainly makes these days more fun.

In today’s blog, I’m breaking down each step tp make it super simple to build a smoothie bowl of your own!

Step 1 : Choose Your Liquid

  • Flax milk 
  • Almond milk
  • Cashew milk
  • Macadamia nut milk
  • Beet juice

I really enjoy mixing half cashew milk with half beet juice for a creamy, nutrient-dense combination.

Step 2 : Choose Your Veggie

  • Spinach
  • Cauliflower
  • Kale

From my experience, it’s best if you are able to use frozen veggies instead of fresh ones for a thicker consistency.

Step 3 : Choose Your Fruits

  • Blueberries
  • Banana 
  • Mango
  • Pineapple 
  • Strawberries
  • Pataya / Dragonfruit
  • Acaí

It’s also best to use frozen fruit as well! Lately, I have been pairing 1-2 different fruits to have some fun with different combinations, but choosing 1 is great too if you’d like to keep things simple.

Step 4: Choose Your Dry Ingredients

  • Vegan protein powder
  • Grass-fed whey protein powder
  • Collagen

This is totally a personal preference and will vary from person to person depending on lifestyle and diet. I prefer Vegan Select and Collagen from PEScience. My discount code TAYLER will save you 15% off your purchase of any amount on their website.

Step 5: Optional Additions

  • Avocado
  • Chia seeds
  • Flax seeds
  • Glutamine

Avocado and chia or flax seeds are great to add for extra fiber. Glutamine is great for gut function.

Step 6 : Blend

I use this blender and it works great for me, but there are plenty of great blender options. My best advice for getting a thick consistency is only adding liquid to the point where all ingredients are covered.

Fair warning: Since there won’t be much room for extra juice, the blending process does take time and patience. Just hang tight, it’s worth it!

Once, everything is blended well, transfer into a bowl.

Step 7: Top It Off

  • Cacao nibs 
  • Almond butter 
  • Hemp seeds
  • Goji berries
  • Granola 
  • Bee pollen
  • Honey

The topping options are endless! As you can see from my pictures, cacao nibs and almond butter are my go-to toppings.

I can’t wait to see the smoothie bowls you create! And I certainly hope they bring you as much joy as they have been bringing me. For more ideas for quarantine, you can check out this blog post.
