Quarantine Eats: Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

You know, I had never had a smoothie bowl until I made this one the other day.
I’ve had a lot of smoothies but not a smoothie…in a bowl.

But, apparently smoothie bowls are all the rage, so I obviously had to give it a try while I have all of this time in quarantine.

Just like smoothies, smoothie bowls are what you make of them. Literally.
You can mix whatever fruits you want in it – along with milk or yogurt, of course – and it’ll probably turn out just fine. But in this post, I’ll just share the first one I decided to try.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup Milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • A handful of Oats
  • 1 Banana (frozen or fresh)
  • 1/4 cup Blueberries
  • 1 tbsp Nut Butter (I used peanut butter because it’s all I had)

& the process is the easiest:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a blender until smooth
  2. Serve in a bowl or cup (I know it’s called a bowl, but I understand the urge to drink a smoothie from a cup…if that’s more natural to you, go for it)
  3. Top with any extra blueberries or oats or peanut butter (or all of that) and take a mouthwatering photo to share with the world
  4. Scoop (or slurp) & enjoy!

This smoothie bowl was actually delicious!
But next time, I’m going to add less milk and more greek yogurt to make it thicker (so that eating it from a bowl makes more sense).

Are you a fan of smoothie bowls?
