Benefits Of Green Smoothie Bowl

The benefits you get from a usual green smoothie and a smoothie bowl are very similar.

However, a green smoothie in a bowl is more like a meal. You can add toppings that elevate the smoothie even more.

Here’s an overview of the benefits of this smoothie bowl:

  1. Nutrient-Dense Meal: Provides a balanced mix of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and healthy fats, making it a wholesome meal option.
  2. Boosts Energy: The natural sugars in bananas and pineapples combined with the sustained energy from healthy fats in avocado and almond butter can increase energy levels.
  3. Rich in Antioxidants: Matcha and spinach are packed with antioxidants that help combat oxidative stress and inflammation.
  4. Supports Digestive Health: High in dietary fiber from ingredients like chia seeds and spinach, which promote a healthy digestive system.
  5. Heart Healthy: The healthy fats from avocado and almond butter are excellent for heart health, helping to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
  6. Easy to Prepare: Simple and quick to blend, this smoothie is perfect for a nutritious meal on-the-go.
  7. Customizable: Easily topped with additional nuts, seeds, or fruits to enhance nutritional value and add texture.

Recipe Notes And Smoothie Bowl Variations

Detox Green Smoothie Bowl

When making smoothies at home, even if you follow a recipe, you can change a few things and still end up with a delicious smoothie!

Below I am going to leave some options for you:

  • The Almond Milk: You can use any milk you like or have. I have used coconut, oat, and even soy milk to make this smoothie.
  • Add Protein: If you are not vegan, you can add 1/2 cup of cottage cheese or yogurt for increased creaminess and protein.
  • The Detox Powder: If you don’t have a detox powder, you can use matcha powder, or any other green powder you have.
  • No Banana: If you don’t like bananas, use frozen mango instead.
  • No Avocado: If you don’t like or have avocado, swap it for 1/2 cup of frozen berries or 1/2 large ripe banana. Do note that the smoothie won’t come out as green.

Top Smoothie Bowl-Making Tips:

  1. Ensure you use frozen fruit: because it helps achieve a thick, scoopable texture that mimics ice cream.
  2. Limit the amount of liquid: to just enough to blend the ingredients, which prevents the mixture from becoming too runny.
  3. Use a high-powered blender: to handle frozen ingredients effectively and create a smooth, creamy texture without strain.
  4. Serve immediately: Enjoy your smoothie bowl right after blending to maintain its thick texture and prevent it from melting.
  5. Pre-chill your bowl: Keep your serving bowl in the freezer prior to preparing your smoothie to help keep everything cold and thick for longer.

Green Smoothie Bowl Toppings


While you can choose your own toppings, I will leave a list of toppings that I personally think work well with this smoothie bowl:

  • Hemp Hearts.
  • Berries.
  • Sliced Banana.
  • Nuts & Seeds.
  • Dollop Of Nut Butter.

The Equipment:

I have only this smoothie bowl using my Nutribullet 600.

However, from experience, most food processors are able to process smoothie bowls. 

Alternatively, using a high-speed blender is key. Not all blenders can blend thick smoothies.

A high-speed blender is for example a Vitamix or a Ninja.
