Strawberry Mango & Banana Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are a fun and refreshing breakfast to treat yourself to! For this recipe I chose to to use a frozen berry mix, mango, and banana with almond milk for the smoothie base. Topped with fresh bananas and strawberries, coconut flakes, gluten free granola, chia seeds and hemp seeds. Smoothie bowls are a great twist on the typical smoothie breakfast and allow for endless creativity and flavor.

There are endless combinations and toppings to pick from. For most smoothie bowls you will want to use two cups of liquid for each cup of frozen fruit. This ratio can be altered by adding more or less liquid for desired smoothie thickness.  Aside from almond milk you could also use coconut milk/water, soy milk, orange juice, carrot juice or yogurt. One tablespoon of natural sweetener such as agave nectar or honey can be used to balance any tartness from the fruit.

Toppings are where you can really get creative. It is nice to have fresh fruit, a crunchy element for texture and seeds/nuts to pack extra nutrients in. For this bowl I chose to use fresh banana and strawberries, coconut flakes, gluten free granola, chia seeds and hemp seeds. Mix it all together and you are in for a real treat!
