Banana Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls were all the rage a few years ago.

It’s like somebody somewhere had a bright idea of just pouring a smoothie into a bowl, adding toppings, and upcharging the heck out of it.

It was brilliant, really. It makes smoothies look a little more appetizing and much more photogenic. The #foodie culture ate it up and your Instagram feed would be filled with pictures of bright colored bowls.

I’ve gone this long without making a smoothie bowl, but one of those bright colored pictures really hooked me the other day. It was a blueberry-banana smoothie bowl and it just looked really good. I knew I had to make it.

It was really easy to make—and fun to make, too. I found which toppings worked best for me, and I plan to mix it up throughout the week. That’s one of the best things about making your own smoothie bowls at home: you can truly make them your own.

Make sure you freeze your bananas first before adding them to a blender. It will make a much thicker smoothie bowl.
