Key Ingredients

This recipe only requires 6 nutritious ingredients to make this PB&J.

  • Banana: A frozen banana adds more sweetness and creaminess to this smoothie bowl.
  • Frozen Berries: In place of jelly, we’ll be blending a combination of blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries.
  • Oats: Instead of bread, we’ll be blending up some rolled oats or quick oats.
  • Peanut Butter: It wouldn’t be a PB&J if there wasn’t any peanut butter. Your creamy peanut butter should be runny, like a thick liquid, made with 1 ingredient, peanuts!
  • 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.
  • Flaxseeds: Flaxseeds are loaded with nutrients, high in omega-3 fats, rich in dietary fiber, and you can’t even taste them. They are completely optional, so no problem if you don’t have them…yet!

Tips for making the perfect smoothie bowl

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

  • Be sure to use frozen fruit to achieve a thick consistency.
  • You can use rolled oats or quick oats.
  • If allergic to peanuts, you can use seed butter, such as SunButter.
  • Flaxseeds are optional.
  • Start off by adding 1/3 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 secret to making smoothie bowls super creamy is using frozen fruit. By adding frozen fruits to your smoothies, you will achieve a thicker result. Also, don’t add too much liquid, because you want add toppings and the worst thing is to have your toppings sinking to the bottom of your smoothie. That’s no fun. I usually start with a little non-dairy milk and add more, if needed, until I reach the desired thickness.
