This Strawberry Smoothie Bowl is an easy breakfast recipe for any day of the week. Made with frozen strawberries, frozen banana slices, and canned coconut milk, this smoothie bowl is extra thick and creamy.

Top your strawberry coconut smoothie bowl with my easy Skillet Granola recipe. My stovetop granola also has coconut oil, coconut sugar, and coconut chips in it which brings great accompanying flavor to this healthy breakfast bowl.

I love having smoothie bowls on days when toast seems too filling. Smoothie bowls fill me up but leave me feeling light. The addition of granola adds some protein and extra calories and nutrients whereas sometimes a smoothie bowl can fall short.

Can I use fresh fruit instead of frozen fruit?

Yes, you can use fresh strawberries, but using frozen strawberries will give the smoothie bowl a thicker and creamier texture.

How do you make a thick smoothie bowl?

The keys to a thick smoothie bowl are using a powerful blender such as the Ninja Kitchen System Blender Jug, and using frozen fruit and very little liquid.

Ingredients

This is a brief overview of the ingredients used in this recipe followed by substitution ideas. Read the recipe card for measurements.

  • frozen strawberries: It’s kind of hard to measure a cup of frozen strawberries but do your best. If you add extra strawberries you might just need a touch more liquid.
  • frozen banana slices: I buy banana slices already frozen but you can slice a whole banana and freeze it for this (and any other) smoothie bowl.
  • coconut milk: I use canned whole fat coconut milk for the best flavor and texture. The jugs of coconut milk are much thinner.
  • toppings: I use my homemade 15-minute skillet granola on top of a lot of my smoothie bowls for a more filling bowl.

Substitutions

  • fruit: change up the fruits if you want to. Try mango, peach, pineapple, or berries.
  • toppings: Use your favorite granola or nuts.
  • milk: You can try different plant milks but remember that coconut milk is pretty thick so you may need less of a different milk. Try it out!

Tips for Making Smoothie bowls

  • blender: Use a powerful blender to make smoothie bowls. My Ninja does a great job. The key to thick smoothie bowls is using less liquid and mostly fruit so you really need a strong blender that can blend without much added liquid.
  • liquid: don’t be tempted to add too much liquid because this will just yield a thinner smoothie instead of a thick mixture.
  • smoothie prep: freeze your own fresh fruit for smoothie bowls if you have some on hand that needs to be used up. I always freeze banana slices for smoothies and smoothie bowls. You can even store the amount needed per recipe in a container or reusable silicone bag and save measuring time on busy mornings.
  • use frozen fruit: frozen fruit helps to make super thick smoothie bowls!
  • customize: make your own favorite smoothie bowl by choosing different types of fruit or toppings or adding protein powder.
