Healthy smoothie bowls are the perfect good for you breakfast that only take 5 minutes to make! These three smoothie bowl recipes are made with frozen fruit and are a colorful way to start your day! Vegan and high in protein and fiber.
In 2013 I got my big break on Instagram by creating beautiful smoothies. I would literally go outside and put my smoothies in nature and take really cool shots outside. Now it’s all about the smoothie bowls!
Smoothie bowls are so easy to make, they take 5 minutes to put together and they are packed full of healthy vitamins and minerals. Low in fat and high in protein and fiber, they are a great way to start your day.
Ingredients to make smoothie bowls
I love smoothie bowls because they are so versatile and easy to adapt to your personal taste.The main components you need for a healthy bowl are:
- Frozen Fruit: Frozen fruit gives your bowls a nice thick and icy texture.It eliminates the need to add ice cubes to the blender which can dilute and make the fruit watery.
- Liquid: I like to use a non-dairy milk in smoothies. The flavor of coconut works really well but almond, oat or soy will all work too. Coconut water is also a great choice and you can use dairy milk if you prefer.
- Toppings: The toppings is where you can add a hit of protein. Chia seeds, hemp seeds and coconut flakes all work really well. Sliced fruit is also a great addition.
Smoothie bowls vs smoothie drinks
Regardless how you put it together, smoothie bowls are a great alternative to regular smoothies because you can bulk them without worrying about being able to drink them through a straw. Andddddd…you can add loads of toppings to make it a full meal. These are my FeelGood smoothie bowls cuz they make me feel good making them, looking at them and especially eating them!
How to make a smoothie bowl
I freeze leftover fruits in a snack size ziplock bag, which is about a serving of fruit. That way I always have frozen fruit ready to go. You can also buy frozen fruit from your local store.
For a full bowl, I use 2 snack bags, two of the same fruit, like banana, or a blend of banana and mango, for example.
Then I add non-dairy milk like almond milk or coconut milk, especially the canned coconut milk, because it adds a rich and creamy texture to the smoothie bowls! What you want is a texture kinda like frozen yogurt or sorbet. Umm, yeah, it’s pretty much disguised sorbet, let’s be honest haha!
Then I go to town with toppings, especially fresh fruit and some superfoods, like shredded coconut, chia seeds and hemp seeds, to start my morning with fuel!

Top tips for making healthy smoothie bowls
- You can easily freeze your own fresh fruit and store it so you can enjoy a healthy smoothie bowl whenever you fancy!
- Depending on the sweetness of the fruit and your taste you may want to sweeten the smoothie. Honey or maple syrup are great natural sweeteners.
- Store any leftovers in a mason jar with a lid. They will last for 24 hours, but I recommend consuming them immediately after making. If the smoothie settles while in the fridge, just use a fork to mix everything together again.
- For similar results, follow the recipe as is. You can use any fruit and milk of choice though, with any super foods on top.
- I make my smoothies in my Vitamix. It has a “frozen” button so it does all the work for me until the ingredients are well blended.
- You can enjoy this as a full meal for breakfast or even a snack if you prefer. Either way, it’s a refreshing nutritious recipe!
Frequently asked questions
Are smoothie bowls a healthy breakfast?
These smoothie bowls are a great way of getting a healthy portion of fruit into your diet before you’ve even started the day! All of the recipes are vegan, have no added refined sugar and have a good helping of fiber.
Can you freeze them?
I recommend that you enjoy these bowls as soon as you’ve made them, but you can prep ahead and freeze them once you’ve made them if you like. Make the smoothies and then freeze them in ziplock bags. Let the smoothies defrost in the fridge the night before and then add to your bowl with your favorite toppings.
Is it enough for breakfast?
The danger of smoothies is that it’s very easier to not add enough to them to keep you full for the morning. These bowls however are packed full of healthy ingredients that are full of fiber. One bowl is around 300 calories so it’s a perfect breakfast choice.
Healthy smoothie bowls are one of my go to breakfasts on busy mornings. Kids love them just as much as the grown ups and they are so easy to make. Are you going to jump n the smoothie bowl train?!
