A delicious blueberry Smoothie Bowl topped with kiwi and granola.

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

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

What’s in this Blueberry Smoothie Bowl?

  • Frozen bananas: The secret ingredient that turns your smoothie bowl into a velvety dessert. See how we freeze bananas.
  • Frozen blueberries: Adds a burst of sweetness and a gorgeous purple hue.
  • Medjool dates: Nature’s sweet, right here! Medjool dates are not just for their sweetness; They add this rich, caramel-like flavor that takes your smoothie bowl to a dessert level of indulgence.
  • chia seeds: Add a subtle crunch and some healthy fats.
  • Unsweetened almond milk: Helps thin out the smoothie bowl without adding a lot of calories. Plus, it’s dairy-free!
  • Ingredients: We used what we had on hand: coconut flakes, kiwi, blueberries and 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 thing, you need less liquid to make a thicker shake. For two, blenders can clog if they don’t have enough liquid.
