This strawberry banana smoothie bowl is an awesome way to start your day! It’s packed with nutrients and so easy to make. I’m not much of a breakfast person, but I’m capable of whipping this together when I wake up first thing in the morning. The frozen fruit is cool and refreshing, while the banana and peanut butter add a touch of creamy sweetness. YUM!
I’ll be honest and tell you I used regular peanut butter in this smoothie. I would love to say I used the healthy no-sugar added good stuff, but I did not have any, so I used the regular sugary stuff. It’s totally up to you which you want to use! I find that the regular peanut butter adds sweetness to the smoothie bowl, but I know it isn’t the healthiest choice. If you find that using no-sugar added peanut butter leaves the bowl lacking something, I recommend adding a bit of natural sweetener such as agave, honey or maple syrup. This strawberry banana smoothie bowl is nice because it’s so easy to add whatever you have on hand to suite your taste buds.
The How To
Breakfast is easy as one-two-three! One: add the strawberries, HALF of the banana (save the other half to slice & put on top), rolled oats, peanut butter, ground flax seed and almond milk to the blender. Two: BLEND, BLEND, BLEND! Three: pour the smoothie into two bowls and top with the frozen blueberries and sliced bananas. So simple & delicious!

I’m able to (barely) fit all of these ingredients into a magic bullet blender. I like using this because it’s small and easy to wash. A regular blender will work well for this as it will have more room to blend.
Feel free to add other ingredients and make adjustments as you see fit. We all have different preferences and it is okay to change up a recipe! Additionally, add whatever toppings you want. I think chia seeds and toasted coconut flakes would also be great with this smoothie bowl. Finally, remember to rate my recipe and let me know in the comments below what you think! Happy Eating!
