Your healthy start to the day: with this recipe you can easily make a delicious pink smoothie bowl yourself. With various toppings, all kinds of berries, banana and coconut, perfect for a healthy breakfast!

Smoothie bowls as a healthy, fruity breakfast

After seeing various smoothie bowls on Instagram even in the depths of winter, it grabbed me at the beginning of the year. After all the hearty winter feasts, I just felt like eating something fresh and, above all, fruity again. And smoothie bowls are just perfect there. Like a smoothie packed with healthy fats and the best of fruits (and greens if you want). Speaking of greens: if you want to get to grips with the topic of green smoothie bowls first, I can recommend adding spinach, salad or herbs little by little. But back to today's recipe!

Since January I have been busy in the kitchen experimenting with all the fruits and frozen berries and finally refining the smoothie bowls with various toppings. This gives the bowls a little more bang or a certain crunch. In addition, they keep you full longer and simply make you happy! For me, they are currently exactly the right healthy breakfast for a delicious start to the day. ;)

The ingredients for your smoothie bowl

My recipe is also super simple and will probably turn out to be a hit from stock with you, just like me. Because the base contains only 4 ingredients:

  • Coconut milk
  • banana
  • Raspberries from the freezer
  • Honey (alternatively agave syrup or maple syrup)

There are no limits to your choice of toppings and you can always modify the recipe a little. My all-time favorites are coconut flakes, cocoa nibs or roasted nuts. I always put the toppings on the smoothie bowl just before eating. This way they stay nice and crunchy and also spice up the bowl. For on the go, I can therefore only recommend that you keep the topping in a separate can.

Prepared super fast

All ingredients go through the mixer once. In the bowl. And on top of that, in addition to the “dry” toppings mentioned, there are whatever you fancy (and whatever is in stock). Now in my case, depending on the season, it's usually just a few slices of banana and a handful of frozen raspberries. Perhaps you discovered my smoothie bowl on Instagram some time ago: Here I also served it with some paleo muesli and freeze-dried berries. Today, as a sign of spring (and for the photo session), there was the luxury version with fresh berries. The last time they went shopping they looked like they had been painted and smelled so seductive that they just had to go with us. A dream. I can hardly wait for my favorite fruit to be back in abundance at the weekly market ...

That certain something at the end

As a highlight, I drip a little mild honey over the smoothie bowl at the end. Honey is not only comparatively healthy, the cold also changes the consistency and I just love that. Caramel threads on breakfast. Who does not want that? The icing on the cake. If you prefer to prepare your bowl vegan, you can of course use agave syrup or maple syrup.

My smoothie bowl with coconut and pineapple provides a little more summer feeling in your breakfast bowl. I can tell you that it is super delicious! But now have fun trying out my recipe!
