A delicious Blueberry Smoothie Bowl topped with kiwi and granola.

I’m a huge fan of eating smoothies with a spoon with tons of toppings on top to really round out the meal. Ask my husband, 9 times out of 10 I’m eating my smoothie in a bowl.

This smoothie bowl recipe is made with fresh, wholesome ingredients like blueberries, bananas, chia seeds, and Medjool dates. All you have to do is blend everything up in a blender and serve in a bowl with your favorite things on top.

What is in this Blueberry Smoothie Bowl?

  • Frozen bananas: The secret ingredient that turns your smoothie bowl into a velvety, dessert-like treat. Check out how we freeze bananas
  • Frozen blueberries: Add a burst of sweetness and a gorgeous purple hue. 
  • Medjool dates: Nature’s candy, right here! Medjool dates aren’t just for sweetness; they bring this rich, caramel-like flavor that takes your smoothie bowl to dessert-level indulgence.
  • Chia Seeds: Add a subtle crunch and some healthy fats. 
  • Unsweetened almond milk: Helps thin out the smoothie bowl without adding a bunch of calories. Plus, it’s dairy-free!
  • Toppings: We used what we had on hand — coconut flakes, kiwi, blueberries, chia seeds.

How do I make a thick smoothie bowl?

​We recommend using a high speed food processor instead of a blender to make thick smoothie bowls. For one, you need less liquid to make a thicker smoothie. For two, blenders can get jammed up if they don’t have enough liquid.

Tips for Making a Smoothie Bowl

  • Invest in a high-quality, high-speed blender (We love our Vitamix).
  • Cut up and freeze fruit in Stasher Bags, meal prep containers, or Ziplocs so you have it on hand when you want to make a healthy smoothie recipe
  • You can make this recipe into a blueberry smoothie or a blueberry smoothie bowl. For more of a meal, make a smoothie bowl with more toppings. 
  • We suggest using frozen blueberries to make this smoothie. Fresh blueberries will give you a thicker mash rather than a smoothie. 
  • The dates add a delicious sweetness to the smoothie.

Fun Toppings for Smoothie Bowls

  • Hemp Seeds: Adds a subtle crunch and healthy fats, similar to chia seeds but with a different texture. 
  • Granola: Add your favorite granola on top for extra crunch and fiber. 
  • Fresh Fruit: Add more fresh fruit like blueberries, kiwis, mango, or strawberries for an extra burst of sweetness.

Yum! I’ve been all about the smoothie protein bowls lately. My favorite fruit combo for them right now is frozen banana with frozen raspberries… so good!

Blueberries are amazing. This smoothie looks fabulous. I don’t nap on a consistent basis but there are times I just need to take a nap! Working smarter and not harder is always a goal of mine. Have a great weekend. xo Lauren

I bring my laptop everywhere I go because I know I can be so productive on it! No shame 😉 this blueberry smoothie looks so creamy and sweet–definitely ready to dig my spoon in!

What’s Google for Business?

Sometimes on Saturday afternoons after my workout and some food I like to take a quick power nap, before I get on with the rest of my day. It is a nice little routine that I have right now. It is a good way to just REST!

Hi Lee, congrats on finally crossing off a stressful item from your tod o list!

Could you tell me more about Google for Business, what is it, and why is it better/recommended?

Oh and the newsletter thing got sorted out, now I only receive 1

ps: When I was a kid I HATED napping. Threw fits, resisted and rebelled. Then once I graduated from high school and started life as a university student I discovered what a lovely thing they are. Since then I cherish every nap I can take, though sadly with an office job they are sparse :-/

What relieves the stress better than anything is being hugged by Boyfriend. A couple minutes and any stress or crankiness is taken care of 🙂
