Customizing The Smoothie Bowl
There are different variations of this smoothie you could try.
Some tasty variations that I have personally tried include:
- No Banana: For a smoothie without a banana, use mango or pineapple instead. Just make sure they are frozen.
- Nutty-Flavor: Add a tablespoon of nut butter, such as peanut or almond, for a nutty creamier smoothie!
- Chocolate: Add a tablespoon of cacao or cocoa powder for a tasty chocolatey twist.

I personally found using a food processor a lot easier to make this smoothie.
But a blender can also work. A cheaper blender is the Nutribullet 600, which I love using for single-serving smoothies.
Can I Use Fresh Pumpkin Instead Of Canned Puree?
You won't be able to use raw pumpkin for this recipe. Just roast or steam it until soft. Ensure it's cooled before using it.
What Are Some Topping Suggestions For This Smoothie Bowl?
Toppings such as chopped nuts, seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, chia), granola, coconut flakes, or additional slices of banana and a sprinkle of cinnamon can add texture and enhance the flavor.
How Can I Thicken My Smoothie Bowl If It's Too Runny?
To thicken the smoothie bowl, add more frozen banana slices or a tablespoon of chia seeds and let it sit for a few minutes to thicken. You can also reduce the liquid (almond milk) slightly.
