Smoothies are best eaten with a spoon! Make this thick and delicious Blueberry Smoothie Bowl recipe and top it with nourishing ingredients for a healthy breakfast idea.

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.
