Chef Time #5: Four Smoothie Bowl Recipes

In this Chef Time post, I tell you about four different smoothie bowl recipes I made. Recently, I’ve been inspired by all of the smoothie bowls I’ve been seeing online and in restaurants. I love how healthy they are (obviously depending on what you put in them) and how pretty they can look depending on what toppings you use.

None of these recipes have exact measurements- you get to decide how much you want to put in! The Dragon Fruit has a pretty strong flavor, so it will cover up any veggies you try to sneak in 🙂

Here are the four recipes I created:

Recipe #1

This is my favorite smoothie bowl recipe- I think it had the best base in terms of taste and consistency. For the base, I used: 1 Dragon Fruit pouch, some almond milk, 1 Avocado and some mixed frozen berries. You can’t taste the Avocado, but it makes the bowl nice a creamy. For the toppings, I used: a spoonful of almond butter, chia seeds, fresh strawberries and granola.

Recipe #2

In this smoothie bowl, I mixed: 1 Dragon Fruit pouch, some almond milk, 2 frozen bananas, some frozen raspberries and some frozen mango chunks. The base came out too soupy, so if you use almond milk or something similar, make sure to watch for this. The toppings I used were granola and chia seeds.

Recipe #3

In this smoothie bowl recipe, I used: 1 Dragon Fruit pouch, 1 frozen banana, some riced cauliflower from Trader Joe’s, some frozen raspberries, some frozen mango chunks, and some almond milk. I promise that you can’t taste the cauliflower; I put it in to provide some additional nutrients. For the toppings, I used chia seeds, granola and almond butter- I love how the almond butter accidentally came out looking like a flower!

Recipe #4

In this recipe, the bowl ingredients are: 1 Dragon Fruit pouch, 1 frozen banana, some frozen mango chunks, some frozen raspberries, and 3 strawberry yogurts. The toppings are chia seeds and granola (I like Udi’s granola!). I used yogurt to give the bowl a creamier texture, I don’t like it when the base gets too soupy.

I hope that these recipes inspire you to make smoothie bowls at home. If you do make them, tag me in the pictures on Instagram @thecrosscountrymillennial- I would love to see them! Also, a great spot to look for the dry goods (granola and chia seeds) used in these recipes is Thrive Market – I’m obsessed with the prices. If you use this link, you’ll get 25% off your first order (this post is not sponsored, I just love Thrive Market). Bon appetite!
