Key Ingredients

This recipe only requires 5 ingredients to make this creamy smoothie bowl.

  • Avocado: It wouldn’t be the same without an avocado to this breakfast combination. Adding a ripe avocado makes an extra creamy smoothie. Also, adding an avocado provides healthy fats, potassium, fiber and plenty of B vitamins. Don’t worry, thanks to the cherries and banana, you won’t even taste the avocado.
  • Banana: A frozen banana adds even more sweetness and creaminess to this smoothie bowl.
  • Cherries: The star of this smoothie bowl. I love using frozen tart cherries but regular frozen cherries or a cherry & berry mix would be perfect.
  • Coconut Yogurt: Coconut yogurt provides a boost of healthy fats and probiotics, but feel free to use a dairy free yogurt if you’d like.
  • Non-dairy milk: You only need a little liquid to blend, since it’s a smoothie bowl. I used unsweetened almond milk, but you can use any non-dairy milk that you enjoy.

Smoothie Bowl Toppings

Although toppings aren’t required, it truly takes this smoothie bowl to the next level. Feel free to personalize to your liking.

Of course, you can top with whatever you want, so I will provide you with some tasty smoothie bowl topping suggestions.

Tips for Making the Perfect Smoothie Bowl

To make the perfect smoothie bowl, make sure to follow these recommendations!

  • Be sure to use a frozen berries and a frozen banana, to achieve a thick consistency.
  • Start off by only adding 1/4 cup of non-dairy milk and only add more if needed.
  • Use a high-speed blender, with a tamper, to ensure that your smoothie bowl achieves a thick and creamy texture.
  • Place your serving bowl in the freezer before you begin preparing this recipe and remove it when smoothie is ready. This will ensure that your smoothie bowl stays cold as you enjoy it.

Fresh versus Frozen Fruit

The key to making smoothie bowls extra creamy is adding frozen fruit. Through adding in frozen fruits to your smoothies, you will achieve a thicker result, so that you can add toppings, without them sinking. Also, don’t add too much liquid, because it is a smoothie bowl after all. I usually start with a little non-dairy milk and add more, if needed, until I reach the desired thickness. 

Smoothie Bowl FAQs

Can I make this smoothie bowl a smoothie?

Most definitely! This smoothie bowl can be as thick or thin as you desire. Add extra non-dairy milk, about a cup, to make this smoothie bowl a smoothie.

Can I add protein powder?

Yes! To increase the protein content of this smoothie bowl, add a scoop of your favorite protein powder. I recommend using a vanilla flavor for this smoothie bowl recipe.

Can I make this smoothie bowl banana free?

Certainly! Replace the frozen banana with an additional 1/2 cup of frozen cauliflower.

Can I make this smoothie bowl in advance?

I do not suggest making this Cherry Avocado Smoothie Bowl in advance. Nonetheless, you can certainly prep all the ingredients, the night before, by adding them to a zip lock bag. Thus, in the morning, all you need to do is add the ingredients, along with non-dairy milk, to your blender.
