Smoothie Variations And Recipe Notes:

You can experiment and change the recipe on your own, or you can try some of my tried and tested variations below:

  1. No Banana: If you are not a fan of bananas, you can either use extra mango or use pineapple.
  2. More Protein: Add a scoop of vanilla protein powder for extra protein.
  3. Make It Vegan: Swap the Greek yogurt for coconut yogurt instead.
  4. Other Nut-Butters: Swap the peanut butter for almond or cashew butter.
  5. Swap The Base: You can make the smoothie tropical flavored by using coconut milk instead of almond milk, or use coconut water.

My Top Tips For Making The Perfect Apricot Smoothie Bowl

  1. Use Frozen Fruit: Using frozen fruit to make this smoothie bowl is really important. You cannot make a creamy and thick smoothie bowl without frozen fruit!
  2. Use a High-Powered Blender: Ideally, use a blender with a pushdown stick. However, my Nutribullet 900 series does a great job. Alternatively, use a food processor.
  3. Chill The Serving Bowl: Place your serving bowl in the fridge or freezer while you prepare the smoothie. This helps keep your smoothie fresher and cooler for longer once it’s served.
  4. Enhance With Toppings: Add toppings that complement the smoothie bowl, such as crunchy toppings like nuts, granola, coconut flakes, etc. 
  5. Eat ASAP: As soon as the smoothie bowl is served, eat it immediately, as it will start to thaw. It’s like ice cream!

My Toppings Suggestions:

  • Sliced Fresh Apricots.
  • Sliced Banana.
  • Chunks Of Mango.
  • Crunchy Seeds And Nuts.
  • Sweet Granola.
  • Drizzle Of Peanut Butter.
  • Coconut Flakes.
