 Blueberry Smoothie Bowl Recipe - Noctaris

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Servings: 2



For the smoothie bowl:

2 cups frozen blueberries
1 ripe banana
1 cup Greek yogurt (plain or vanilla flavored)
1/2 cup almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional, for sweetness)
1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional, for added nutrition and texture)

For the toppings:

Fresh blueberries
Fresh Blackberries (for more diversity)
Sliced banana
Granola or muesli
Shredded coconut
Chopped nuts (such as almonds, walnuts, or pecans)
Drizzle of honey or maple syrup (optional)


In a blender, combine the frozen blueberries, ripe banana, Greek yogurt, almond milk, and honey or maple syrup (if using). Blend until smooth and creamy. If the mixture is too thick, you can add a splash more almond milk to achieve your desired consistency.

Once the smoothie mixture is smooth and well-combined, you can add the chia seeds if desired. Pulse the blender a few times to mix them in evenly, but avoid over-blending as you want to maintain some texture.

Pour the smoothie mixture into two serving bowls.

Now it's time to get creative with the toppings! Arrange a handful of fresh blueberries, blackberries, sliced banana, granola or muesli, shredded coconut, and chopped nuts on top of each smoothie bowl. You can also drizzle a bit of honey or maple syrup for extra sweetness if desired.

Serve the blueberry smoothie bowls immediately and enjoy them with a spoon. The cool and refreshing smoothie base combined with the crunchy toppings creates a delightful texture and flavor combination.


Additional Tips & Recommendations:

  1. Frozen fruits: Using frozen blueberries and a ripe frozen banana will result in a thicker and creamier smoothie bowl. It eliminates the need for ice cubes and ensures a chilled and refreshing consistency.

  2. Toppings variety: Don't be afraid to mix and match toppings based on your preferences. Try adding sliced strawberries, raspberries, or other favorite fruits for added flavor and visual appeal. Get creative with different textures by incorporating crunchy elements like crushed nuts, seeds, or even a sprinkle of cocoa nibs.

  3. Texture balance: For a more substantial and satisfying bowl, include a variety of textures. Combine creamy elements like Greek yogurt with crunchy toppings like granola or muesli. This contrast in textures adds interest and makes each bite more enjoyable.

  4. Sweetness control: The sweetness of your smoothie bowl can be adjusted to your liking. Taste the mixture before blending and add honey, maple syrup, or a natural sweetener if desired. Be mindful of the sweetness of your toppings as well, as some may already contribute a natural sweetness.

  5. Adjust the consistency: If your smoothie is too thick, add a little more almond milk, a tablespoon at a time, until you reach the desired consistency. On the other hand, if it's too runny, add a few more frozen blueberries to thicken it up.

  6. Experiment with different milk options: Almond milk is commonly used, but you can substitute it with any milk of your preference, such as soy milk, coconut milk, or dairy milk. Choose the one that complements your taste and dietary needs.

  7. Experiment with add-ins: Boost the nutritional value of your smoothie bowl by incorporating superfood add-ins. Chia seeds, flaxseeds, hemp hearts, or protein powders can provide an extra nutritional punch. You can also try adding a handful of spinach or kale for a nutrient-rich greener smoothie bowl and overall more balanced meal.

  8. Pre-chill your bowl: To keep your smoothie bowl colder for longer, place your serving bowls in the freezer for a few minutes before assembling. This helps maintain the temperature of the smoothie and keeps it from melting too quickly.

  9. Garnish with love: Take a moment to arrange your toppings in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Sprinkle shredded coconut, drizzle honey, or strategically place fresh berries on top. The presentation can make your smoothie bowl feel even more delightful.

  10. Enjoy immediately: Smoothie bowls are best enjoyed right after preparation to savor the perfect texture and freshness. The toppings may become soggy if left to sit for too long. However, if you need to store leftovers, keep the smoothie base separate from the toppings and assemble just before eating.

    There you have it! 

    Remember, smoothie bowls are versatile, and you can adjust the ingredients and toppings based on your preferences and dietary needs. Let your creativity shine and enjoy the journey of creating and savoring your delicious blueberry smoothie bowl!
