Cherry Berry Smoothie Bowl

Are you team smoothie or team smoothie bowl?

I used to drink smoothies a lot, but now I'm definitely team smoothie bowl!

My favorite part is decorating. It's so fun to make your food gorgeous before eating it. And with a smoothie bowl you can spend as much time as you want beautifying your smoothie.

I also enjoy the "bowl" part of a smoothie bowl. It's nice to sit down with the bowl and a spoon and feel like I'm actually eating a meal.

That said, if you're on the go it makes perfect sense to skip the bowl all together and go straight for the reusable thermos (or your smoothie vessel of choice).

If you do choose the cup option instead of the bowl, you'll want to add some more milk to create a more drinkable consistency. The last thing you want is half your smoothie all over your face because it was too thick for you to drink!

Whichever option you choose, this Cherry Berry Smoothie Bowl is a delicious dish!

It's made with only a few simple ingredients. I love how recipes using whole food ingredients turn out to be so tasty, even when they aren't fancy. Simple is often better!

Ingredients

  • Frozen Cherries: I used red pie cherries which are pretty tart, it resulted in a subtly sweet smoothie. If you're looking for something fruitier, I suggest using dark, sweet cherries.
  • Frozen Strawberries: Strawberries add another layer of sweetness and some bulk to the smoothie.
  • Frozen Banana: Pro tip - ALWAYS freeze overripe bananas. They are so useful. Bananas make smoothies thick and creamy. And you can also make nice cream!
  • Plant-Based Yogurt: Personally, I don't use store-bought yogurt a lot but I had some when I made this smoothie and wow is it delicious! I used coconut yogurt which complemented the coconut flakes that I sprinkled top.
  • Non-Dairy Milk: I used almond milk in this particular smoothie, but I think homemade coconut milk would be delicious. Use whatever non-dairy milk you have on hand.

How to make a Cherry Berry Smoothie Bowl

Smoothies are notoriously simple to make. My only tip is to let your frozen fruit thaw for a few minutes before you blend. This makes the blending so much easier and helps avoid brain freeze!

Other than that, just throw all the ingredients in your blender or food processor and blend away.

Pour the smoothie into a bowl and have fun decorating it! I used cherries, blueberries, and coconut flakes. You could get creative with nuts, seeds, yogurt, or other toppings of choice. Enjoy!

Recipe Prayer

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
