3 Healthy Vegan Dessert Inspired Smoothie Bowls

Updated: Jul 28, 2018


Sometimes I'm craving a smoothie but still want something that feels a bit more substantial, something that needs to be eaten with a spoon. Well, these 3 smoothie bowls are just the solution, and of course I had to make them dessert inspired because why not? I get to serve my sweet tooth without the extra added sugars. They're perfect for breakfast, a midday snack, or... well, dessert! 😋


Smoothie bowls are also the easiest things to make! They're so easy that I didn't even need to share a full-on recipe, but I still made PDFs for each one, for your convenience.


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Serves: 2 people


DIRECTIONS

  1. Add all the ingredients in a blender and blend till completely smooth. You may need to mix the contents and/or scrape down the sides of the blender between blending. If for any reason the ingredients are too thick for your blender, go ahead and add a little more almond milk or water a little at a time.

  2. Serve in a bowl and add the toppings I recommended above or any other toppings you may want. Customize your smoothie bowl as you like!

Told you it was easy!
