Smoothie Bowl Recipes For The Whole Family

Smoothie bowls – what are they?! Well, mamas, they’re a great way to get all your vitamins first thing and are also brilliant for kids because they look colourful (like ice-cream!) and are the perfect way to get their day started. Apparently they were all the rage a couple of years ago and I’ve joined the smoothie bowl party late (hey, I’m a mama of 3 little ones, give me a break) but that doesn’t mean we can’t join in with the love now.

A smoothie bowl isn’t like a regular smoothie because it’s thicker – you need a spoon not a straw and you can add things to chew too. And making them involves blending fruit and veg (can be frozen), adding a little dairy such as yoghurt or milk (or dairy alternative if you’re intolerant – remember not too much as it has to be thick) plus nut butters, seeds, dried fruit, oat flakes – anything goes really! And then comes the arty part. Top it all off with colour and texture (remember, kids eat with their eyes first!) – some cut mango, strawberries, shredded coconut, even a few naughty chocolate flakes (come on, mamas, anything to get those 5-a-day in right?!). I’ve been getting a few ideas from instagram – here are some of my faves to see you through the week. Oh and remember, the secret of a good smoothie bowl is to have as little liquid as possible.

Blend 1 frozen banana with 1 cup of raspberries (and add any nut butters, medjool dates and anything else you might like). Top with mashed berries and a sprinkling of granola. Oh yeah! My kids love it.

I love the smoothie bowls on this insta feed – there aren’t really any recipes attached but I’ve guessed that this is a blend of frozen banana, strawberries, blueberries, yoghurt and some vanilla – all topped with bananas, blueberries and seeds. Yummy!
