I discovered that I was a smoothie person when I was able to eat it with a spoon.
There’s something a little more satisfying about having a smoothie treat poured into a bowl and topped with a variety of textures and flavors.
Smoothie bowls might appear intimidating, but they are very easy to make. Just like your traditional smoothie, you’re simply blending up all of your ingredients.
The only difference is that you’re eating the smoothie out of a bowl and topping it off with more fruit, nuts, and seeds.
Ingredients In The Raspberry Smoothie Bowl
We’re only using 3 ingredients for the base of this smoothie bowl. Let’s break it down.
- Frozen Strawberries - The frozen strawberries will give this smoothie bowl natural sweetness. Raspberries are tart, but ripe frozen strawberries are mildly sweet, which pairs nicely in this recipe.
- Frozen Raspberries - The reason why we’re sticking with frozen fruit is that we want a creamy and chilly base without the use of ice. Raspberries here will fill you up with its natural, plant-based dose of fiber and protein.
- Vegan Milk - Either vegan milk or water works fine in this recipe. This important part is that we need something that can break down and smooth out the frozen ingredients. I opted to use soy milk for an extra boost of protein and creaminess.
Then, I topped it off with whatever I could find in my pantry. This included granola, sliced almonds, chia seeds, and a drizzle of honey for some sweetness.
To keep this recipe vegan, sweeten up your smoothie bowl with maple syrup, dates, or sugar instead. Or, just keep it as-is.

- Use a good blender. A blender with dull blades won’t be as efficient at creating a smoothie texture for your smoothie. Affordable blenders are on the market - I love my Oster blender and I’ll use my Nutribullet if I am making a smaller batch.
- Top your smoothie bowl with whatever you like. There are no hard rules here. Sometimes I like to add chocolate chunks or even toasted sunflower seeds.
