What is a smoothie bowl
A smoothie bowl is a thick smoothie (think soft serve ice cream) made with a base of fruits, veggies, and other healthy mix-ins such as a variety of superfoods, supplement powders, and yogurt. Because of its thick consistency, it is served in a bowl and eaten with a spoon. Smoothie bowls are often topped with a variety of fruits, nuts, seeds, and granola.

Smoothie bowls are super simple to make! To make a smoothie bowl, simply blend the ingredients together in a blender until you have a thick, creamy consistency. Scoop it into a bowl, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy it with a spoon! So easy!
Ingredients for a smoothie bowl
With so much variety, there are endless combinations of smoothie bowls. Common ingredients include:
Fruits and vegetables
You can add a variety of fruits and greens to your smoothie base. A few of my favorite ingredients are:
Do make sure that you are using frozen fruit at the base of your smoothie bowl. Frozen fruit provides the ice cream like texture. When smoothie bowls aren’t properly chilled, the texture can get thick and slimy.
You can also add a variety of superfoods for a healthy boost. A few of my favorite superfoods to add are:
These all have incredible benefits for your mood, energy, heart, and overall health.
Smoothie bowls are then topped with all the goods. I’m talking:
With endless variations, you can experiment with a different smoothie bowl every day for a fully satisfying breakfast.
For chocolate smoothie bowls, I like to add one of my favorite dietary supplements, Detox Organics.
What is Detox Organics?
Detox Organics is a superfood powder that works as a 3-phase supplement alkalizing and detoxifying the body while providing digestive support. This supplement removes harmful toxins, reduces inflammation, eases digestion, and supports healthy immunity – all in one delicious chocolate powder! Rather than being filled with unnatural ingredients, Detox Organics works with your bodies own natural detoxification system to eliminate toxins and decrease inflammation through whole, natural, and healthy foods.
Why I love Detox Organics:
Not only does the chocolate superfood supplement add delicious flavor to your morning smoothie bowls, but it also:
Aids in the elimination of toxins
Maintains a natural pH balance within your body
Promotes weight loss
That just to name a few of its many benefits!
Each scoop of Detox Organics contains a powerful combination of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and plants that are raw, 100% certified organic, and vegan. And somehow, they make it delicious; a supplement powder with no grainy or weird aftertaste. It’s truly incredible!
I love this product and I highly recommend you check it out. Detox Organics can be used daily in your morning smoothies or mixed with 10-12 ounces of water or your favorite non-dairy milk.
Tips and tricks for making the best chocolate smoothie bowl recipe
Make sure your bananas are completely frozen to ensure the right ice cream-like consistency. To freeze the bananas, peel and chop ripe bananas into 1″ pieces. Freeze in a single layer on a baking sheet. When frozen all the way through transfer the banana pieces to a ziplock bag. Return to the freezer and store for up to three months. When ready to use, just toss them in your blender with the rest of your smoothie ingredients.
This smoothie bowl allows for a lot of variation. Substitute hazelnuts for any kind of nut, use your favorite non-dairy milk of choice, and top with your favorite toppings. For best results, add 1 scoop or one packet of Detox Organics to this recipe to give it a rich chocolate taste while providing you with all kinds of health benefits.
This chocolate smoothie bowl should be eaten immediately! Eat with a spoon or omit the toppings, add another 1/2 cup of milk, and enjoy through a straw!

- Drain and rinse the hazelnuts. In a high-powered blender, blend together all the smoothie ingredients until completely smooth. To start, use only 1/4 cup of milk. Add more if necessary but try and keep the smoothie as thick as possible. You want a soft-serve ice cream like consistency.
Pour into a large bowl and top with desired toppings. Serve immediately
