  • About 1/4 cup non-dairy milk (almond, soy, cashew, flax - plus more if needed)
  • A big handful of greens
  • 1 very ripe frozen banana (this is what makes the bowls taste so good)
  • 1 scoop of plant-based chocolate or vanilla protein powder
  • 1.5 cups of frozen fruit (I usually use mostly berries and then add other fruits like pineapple, cherries, mango, acai, etc. )
  • Toppings (my favorite part!) - I love fruit, seeds, nuts, granola, healthy cereal, chia seeds, hemp seeds, coconut flakes, and nut butters.


  • Take a few splashes of milk and blend it with the greens first. For me, this makes the smoothie bowl not as grainy feeling as when I add the greens in with the rest of the ingredients but you can skip this step if you want though.
  • I then add the other ingredients along with the rest of the milk and blend till smooth.
  • Top with any tasty topping you have! I love adding a drizzle of nut butter at the very end - so tasty!
