This blueberry smoothie bowl is a delicious blueberry green smoothie that you can top with granola and fresh fruit and eat with a spoon!
I have a smoothie almost every morning for breakfast, but sometimes it doesn’t feel like a real meal since there is no chewing involved. Lately, I’ve been a new trend – the smoothie bowl.
This is amazing because you can make your favorite smoothie, sprinkle some granola and fruit on the top and eat it with a spoon! This makes the smoothie feel more like a meal than a drink, but with all the nutrients and flavors of your favorite smoothie!
Blueberry Banana Smoothie Bowl
Blueberries and bananas are a great pairing for nutritional benefits like fiber, antioxidants, and potassium. But the flavors also complement each other well to give a subtle and sweet smoothie flavor. Almond Milk and Frozen Kale were both products that ended up being wonderful additions to my smoothie bowl. Together, this smoothie is as nutritious as it is delicious.
Why You’ll Love This Recipe
- Minimal ingredients. This recipe only uses a small handful of ingredients, and most of them are frozen so they’re in one convenient place. Frozen fruits and veggies thicken smoothies without needing ice.
- Versatile. Adjust the ingredients to your own liking. Add in a nice sweetener like maple syrup or honey, swap out the fruits for something like frozen mango, or really customize this smoothie to your own tastes.
- Quick assembly. I like to prep my smoothies the morning of, but you can just as easily ave the frozen fruits and kale in a to-go bag in the freezer to cut down on prep time. Just grab the prepped baggie and add it to the blender ith the other ingredients and you’re good to go. You can even freeze your peeled banana as well.
Blueberry Bowls Ingredients
Almond Milk- You will need 2 cups of almond milk to help blend your smoothie into the perfect consistency. I used Silk Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Milk but feel free to use whole milk if you want.
Blueberries– Adding in 1 cup of frozen blueberries will give us the iconic blue color as well as vitamins and antioxidants.
Mixed fruit- For added flavor variety, mix in 1 cup of frozen mixed fruit. This can be peaches, pineapple, etc. So feel free to really experiment and see what you enjoy best.
Frozen Kale- Adding in 1/2 cup of frozen kale makes this a “green” smoothie. Kale supports eye development, bone health, and more. I used Earthbound Farms Frozen Kale, but you can use any brand.
Banana– By adding in 1 ripe (peeled) banana, we can get our smoothie naturally sweeter and thicker. It also helps to add in fiber as well.
Chia seeds- This is another great antioxidant and thickener. Use 2 tablespoons of chia seeds for their health benefits.

What makes a smoothie bowl thick?
Our smoothie is made nice and thick because we use frozen fruits and veggies to make it. Instead of adding in ice, which melts and becomes watery fairly quickly, we use frozen fruit to create a thick smoothie, and as the smoothie warms up, it still doesn’t become watery as ice would have.
Are blueberry smoothies good for you?
Absolutely! While the amount of health benefits truly depends upon what you add to your smoothie, blueberries themselves are little blue superfoods packed with so many nutritious benefits.
What fruit mixes well with blueberries?
Blueberries go great with just about anything from peaches to mangos to strawberries, bananas, and more. Citrus like lemon, orange, and pineapple also pair nicely with blueberries and help to offer a nice contrast to the sweet berries by adding in a tart twist.
What’s the best liquid to put in a smoothie?
We use almond milk because it’s healthy and almost always on hand around here. You can feel free to swap it out for just about anything. If you don’t have almond milk, some other great ideas include regular cow’s milk, coconut milk or coconut water, or any fruit juice.
