1. Island Smoothie Bowl
Get creative in the morning and look forward to summer by creating this palm island beach scene within your smoothie bowl! Blend together frozen bananas, desiccated coconut, blue spirulina powder and a splash of almond milk to make the blue smoothie base, then create the sandy beach using a handful of granola. The trunk of the palm tree is made using slices of banana, while the palm leaves are mint leaves (genius!). Throw in a handful of blueberries to top it off and then stand back to admire your handiwork.
2. Avocado and Kale Smoothie Bowl
Avocados are internet famous for a reason. They are the holy grail of all that is possible with anything that is healthy and tasty. With that in mind, blend your avocado with frozen banana, kale leaves, almond milk and agave syrup to create a truly delicious yet incredibly healthy smoothie. Whack your smoothie into a bowl and then generously cover it with raspberries, kiwi and chia seeds. This is what the supermodels don’t want you to know.
3. Sunshine In A Bowl Smoothie Bowl
It’s time to get spicy. This recipe is perfect for those of you who struggle to wake up in the morning and feel groggy even after your second coffee of the day. Take your frozen bananas and blend together with some coconut milk, a splash of almond milk, a handful of mango, a PINCH of turmeric and cayenne pepper to make a delicious smoothie base. Top with tasty crunchy things like granola, almonds, pine nuts, cashews or peanuts to really pack yourself full of as much energy as possible!
4. Chocolate Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie Bowl
This is a personal favourite, as quite frankly it’s the closest we’re ever going to get to being able to eat a Snickers bar for breakfast and not breaking the healthy eating promise we’ve all made. Whizz up some frozen bananas with peanut butter, almond milk, vanilla extract, cocoa powder and maple syrup before topping with granola, sliced banana, cocoa nibs and peanuts. Honestly, this one can double up as a dessert it’s that tasty.
5. Butterfly Pea Smoothie Bowl
This smoothie bowl is packed full of goodness, and is made with a surprise secret ingredient: cauliflower! Make by blending frozen banana, frozen cauliflower and cashew milk with a teaspoon of butterfly pea powder to give it that gorgeous lilac colour and make it pop. Serve topped with chopped fruit – we recommend diced strawberries, raspberries and sliced banana for some sweetness.
6. Tropical Mango and Pineapple Smoothie Bowl
Start your day off with a brekkie that puts you in a good mood by carrying your mind to nicer climbs. Did someone say the tropics? Blend up mango, banana, pineapple and coconut water to create the exotic smoothie base. This one is so good (and good for you!) that you can really top it with anything, but if you want to really do the tropical flavouring proud, sprinkle with chopped kiwi, desiccated coconut and chopped mango.
7. Peach, Raspberry and Courgette Smoothie Bowl
Looking to something a little bit different with your morning smoothie bowl? Look no further. This bowl incorporates the more usual delicious fruit flavours with the addition of courgette – and it tastes great!

Sprinkle some spare raspberries on top with a handful of walnut to finish.
8. Carrot Cake Smoothie Bowl
Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it? With this Carrot Cake Smoothie bowl, you get the best of both worlds: health and a delicious treat. Whizz up some frozen bananas with 100% pure carrot juice (that’s the important part that really gives this the edge), a few dates, a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a pinch of cinnamon to make the smoothie base. Once that’s sorted chuck on a handful of walnuts, spare chopped dates and another pinch of cinnamon. This one induces jealousy – flatmates, partners and friends WILL sneak a mouthful or two, be vigilant. The possibilities are endless when it comes to smoothie bowl recipes.
