Optional Recipe Changes & Smoothie Bowl Notes

Easy Creamy Coffee Smoothie Bowl

The original recipe only needs 4-ingredients.

If you want to elevate it a bit more, here are your options:

  1. Add Yogurt: Add 1/3 cup and reduce the dairy-free milk to 1/4 cup. Yogurt will add extra creaminess and protein.
  2. Make It High Protein: Instead/or and yogurt, add a scoop of unflavored protein powder.
  3. Chocolate: If you are feeling extra, add a tablespoon of cacao or cocoa powder for a subtle chocolatey flavor and a darker richer color and flavor. 
  4. Nutty-Goodness: Add a tablespoon of creamy peanut or almond butter for a richer and creamier smoothie with nutty undertones.

The Equipment:

Blender Type Suitability:
Vitamix Blender
BlendJet X
Ninja Blender
Oster Blender X
Hamilton Blender
AMZChef Blender X
Wamife Blender X
Ninja Food Processor
Kitchen Aid Food Chopper X
Hamilton Beach Food Processor

I personally found using a food processor a lot easier to make this smoothie, and smoothie bowls in general.

A lower-budget alternative is the Nutribullet 600, which can still make this smoothie bowl just as good as a food processor.

The only downside is the fact that Nutribullet 600 can only make a single-serving smoothie. It lacks capacity.

Smoothie Bowl Making Tips:

  • Frozen Fruit: For this smoothie bowl, incorporating frozen banana is crucial to achieve the desired consistency. Fresh banana won’t achieve the same thick cooling consistency.
  • Limit Liquid Use: To preserve the thick texture of the smoothie bowl, start with the suggested amount of liquid and only increase gradually if necessary.
  • Immediate Consumption: It’s best to enjoy the smoothie right after blending. Add your toppings and dig in ASAP!
