Basic Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Start with your favorite smoothie base, featuring fresh fruit (berries, mango, pineapple) and some liquid to loosen it (coconut or almond milk). You could add something for creaminess (banana, avocado) and a handful of dark greens (yes, kale). Then pour your smoothie into a bowl, and get gorgeous with fruit, nuts, seeds, and a drizzle of something sweet. This classic version gives a nod to Hawaii and Brazil with the inclusion of açaí, the bodacious purple berry.

Ingredients

For the smoothie base:
1 packet pureed açaí (or 1 tablespoon açaí powder)
½ banana, roughly chopped
½ cup (4 fl oz/125 ml) coconut milk or water, or as needed

For the toppings:
Sliced banana
Sliced strawberries
Blueberries
Granola
Coconut flakes
Honey
Chia seeds

Instructions

To make the smoothie base, in a blender, add the açaí, ½ banana, and coconut milk and blend until thick and smooth. Add another splash of coconut milk, if you like, to reach your desired consistency.

Pour the smoothie base into a bowl. Top with the banana, strawberries, blueberries, granola, and coconut flakes, arranging the ingredients in pretty rows. Drizzle with honey, sprinkle with chia seeds, and serve.

Nutrition tip: Coconut is the classic, but if you’re whipping this up for breakfast, get some more protein in the mix. ½ cup (4 oz/125 g) plain Greek yogurt (13 g protein), ½ cup plain kefir (6 g protein), 1 tablespoon almond butter (3 g protein), or 1 tablespoon hemp hearts (3 g protein) will give you a boost.
