Blackberry Smoothie Bowl Variations

Blackberry Smoothie Bowl

I tested numerous different variations of this smoothie bowl recipe, but I settled for the least complicated one, requiring only a handful of ingredients.

After all, we all love a few ingredients easy and delicious recipes!

But, if you feel like you want to elevate this blackberry smoothie bowl, here are some suggestions:

  1. No Banana Variation: If you are not a fan of bananas, you can use frozen mango or pineapple instead.
  2. Nutrient-Dense: Incorporate into the blender together with the other listed ingredients a handful of spinach, and a tablespoon of almond butter.
  3. Not Vegan? Add 1/2 cup of yogurt, and reduce the almond milk to 1/2 cup. Yogurt adds creaminess and lots of protein to the smoothie bowl.
  4. Protein Boost: You can either add the yogurt suggested above or add a scoop of protein powder of your choice.

Blackberry Ice Cream Smoothie Variation

Do you know what I love about smoothies? Is that they taste like ice cream, but are so healthy!

Now, to turn this blackberry smoothie into a frozen dessert, do the following:

  1. Prepare the smoothie as instructed in the recipe above, but double or triple it.
  2. Transfer onto a freezer-friendly container, or ice cube tray, and spread evenly.
  3. Freezer for 12 hours.
  4. If using ice cubes, pop them out, and blend them with 1-2 tbsp of water for a thick creamy ice cream.
  5. If you used a container, use an ice cream scoop, and scoop portions of the frozen smoothie and enjoy!

  • Chia Seeds.
