Blackberry Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowls

This blackberry strawberry banana smoothie bowl is for those of you who are looking for a simple, beautiful, and relatively healthy fruit-filled breakfast bowl. Or keep it as a blackberry strawberry banana smoothie and drink it on the go.

I was recently inspired to make smoothies again by a batch of homemade peanut butter granola. You see, I made a lot of peanut butter banana smoothies with added protein powder when I was training for an Ironman triathlon many moons ago. So I made a peanut butter banana smoothie bowl and loaded it with peanut butter and some chocolate chips as toppings. You can see that smoothie bowl at the bottom of this post.

Of course it was delicious. But I don’t run enough right now to be eating that on a regular basis! So this one – this blackberry strawberry banana smoothie bowl – this one is guilt free.

Tips and tricks for making smoothies and smoothie bowls

Making smoothies and smoothie bowls isn’t hard as long as you have a blender. Probably the most helpful tip I can share is to make sure you peel your bananas before you freeze them!

The base of this blackberry strawberry banana smoothie bowl is just frozen fruit and a thick yogurt of your choice. This is one the few recipes where frozen fruit works as well if not better than fresh.

Load everything into your blender and give it a whirr. You might need to unplug it and stir things around with a spoon or spatula if your blender doesn’t have a powerful motor.

If you’re making a smoothie, that’s it! You’re done unless you want to thin the smoothie with a little milk of your choice. Pour the smoothie in a glass and pop in a compostable straw.

If you’re making a smoothie bowl, it needs to stay thicker because you’re going to eat it with a spoon. Pour it into a bowl, and sprinkle on your toppings.

FAQs about blackberry strawberry banana smoothie bowls

Do you remove the seeds from the blackberries?

Unlike my recipes for blackberry curd tart and blackberry apple pie, it’s not necessary to remove the blackberry seeds for a smoothie.

Where do you get compostable straws?

We love Naturalik paper straws for reducing plastic waste.

Can you freeze smoothies?

Yes, depending on the ingredients, smoothies can be frozen, though you’ll get better results if you freeze the fruit without the yogurt or milk. Or you could make it into frozen yogurt with your ice cream maker, but that’s a whole other category of recipe that I haven’t shared yet.
