These smoothie bowls are packed with strawberry flavor and nutritious ingredients. They’re an easy way to fit fruit, dairy and protein into your diet and taste more like a dessert than a healthy breakfast!

You can easily customize your bowl to be paleo, vegan, keto, or whatever your dietary needs are. I like to use oats to thicken mine up, but there are many different options to try to meet different dietary restrictions. I promise to give you all my best tips and tricks!


A smoothie bowl isn’t just a smoothie poured into a bowl, like it sounds. The big difference between a smoothie and a smoothie bowl is the thick consistency.

If you were to add toppings to a typical smoothie, they would quickly sink to the bottom. By contrast, the thick base of a smoothie bowl holds up the toppings and let’s you enjoy different flavors and textures with each spoonful!

The base of my smoothie bowl starts with Greek yogurt. I use Greek yogurt because it contains less liquid than regular yogurt, so it has a  naturally thick consistency. This thick base helps support all of your toppings without them sinking to the bottom of your bowl.

Here are the ingredients:

  • Rolled oats
  • Milk of choice
  • Chia seeds
  • Frozen strawberries
  • Banana
  • Greek yogurt

How to thicken your smoothie bowl without oats?

There are a few options depending on your dietary restrictions. Oats are the best in my opinion for consistency and flavor, but you can try the following in place of them:

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons white beans
  • 2 tablespoons tofu

You won’t be able to taste the tofu or white beans, but they will thicken the smoothie bowl!

How to make a smoothie bowl in 3 easy steps

  1. Blend the oats in a blender, until they make a finely ground powder. Add in the milk and the chia seeds. Purée the mixture for about 20 seconds.
  2. Add in the yogurt and fruit. Carefully blend everything together and make a smooth mixture, scraping down the sides as needed.
  3. Pour the mixture into a bowl and top with your favorite toppings!

Making the perfect smoothie bowl couldn’t be any easier. Just blend the ingredients together and add your favorite toppings! How simple is that? Your family will request this for breakfast all the time!

Smoothie Bowl Toppings

I love how customizable smoothie bowls can be! You can add whatever toppings you feel like. This is a really great time to have the little ones help out in the kitchen. You can pour the base in the bowl for them and let them add on whatever toppings they want. They will love it! If you have a picky eater at home, they will love picking out their own toppings. #MomWin

Here are some topping suggestions:

  • Peanut or almond butter drizzle
  • Granola
  • Kiwi
  • Chopped nuts
  • Honey
  • Berries
  • Banana
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Chia seeds
  • Cacao nibs
  • Cinnamon
  • Dragon fruit

I’d love to hear your favorite toppings in the comments!

Healthy smoothie in a bowl with mixed berries and fruit

My kids love helping me make our smoothie bowls in the morning and decorating each of theirs individually with toppings.

Don’t tell them my secret, but the first time we had them I told them they were homemade ice cream bowls. They had no idea and thought I was the coolest mom giving them ice cream for breakfast!

Tried this today and really enjoyed it. I hadn’t made one before, but I have a smoothie every day and this was a nice change of pace. Felt more filling.

I tried this with my kids this morning and it was delicious! They even loved it – which is really surprising. I let them add some cereal on top of theirs, but hey, at least they ate the smoothie part too!
