Smoothie bowls are all the rage these days and for good reason. They have all the components of a great breakfast, including protein-filled yogurt, fresh fruit and delicious toppings. Plus, breakfast never looked so good! This berry smoothie bowl is going to be your new favorite. We love making them for breakfast, but you could enjoy them as an afternoon snack or even a late night dessert.

How to make a smoothie bowl

This bowl starts out with milk, yogurt and fresh fruit. The peanut butter adds the creamy flavor and extra protein, while the fruit adds the perfect sweetness.

  • Greek yogurt – this will help your protein bowl to be thick and creamy (adds extra protein too)
  • Milk – this is the liquid I like to use, but you can substitute with almond or coconut milk as well.
  • Frozen berries – this adds the sweetness and help keep the smoothie thick.
  • Frozen bananas – frozen bananas are a must as they help sweeten the smoothie bowl and add a depth of rich creaminess.
  • Creamy peanut butter – you definitely don’t have to add the peanut butter, but I love the flavor it adds.
  • Vanilla protein powder – you don’t need this as well, just a way to add in some extra protein.

To make, blend together the greek yogurt, milk, frozen berries, banana, peanut butter and protein powder in a high powder blender. Then pour into a bowl.
