- With the first day of summer fast approaching, you’re going to need this creamy and refreshing strawberry smoothie bowl in your back pocket.

How To Make A Strawberry Smoothie Bowl
The key to making a smoothie bowl is to keep the consistency THICK because otherwise, it’s just a regular old smoothie. At least that is my preference. If it is super runny, whatever you top the smoothie bowl with (AKA- granola) will just sink to the bottom.
And the key to making a thick smoothie bowl is to use only a little bit of liquid. For instance, in this strawberry smoothie bowl, we are only using 1/4 cup of milk and 1/4 cup of vegan yogurt. That being said you kind of need a high-speed blender and one with a tamper stick to achieve this thick consistency. You need a tamper stick because the mixture is tough to blend without. I told you we were going for thickness. You can still make this strawberry bowl without a tamper stick but you will most likely have to add a bit more liquid so the ultimate thickness won’t be achieved but I promise it will still taste like a summer’s dream. Strawberries and cream, anyone?!
For this strawberry smoothie bowl, I used Yoggu vegan yogurt which is one of my favourite vegan yogurts. The yogurt, along with the frozen banana creates the creaminess you need in a good smoothie bowl. The strawberries add the main flavour to this smoothie and the milk makes it possible for everything to blend smoothly. Try adding your favourite protein powder to this strawberry bowl. This will add a boost of protein to start your day off right!

Strawberry Smoothie Bowl
- High-speed blender
- tamper stick
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/4 cup milk of choice
- 1/4 cup unsweetened vegan yogurt
- 1 scoop protein powder (optional/may alter taste)
- Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender.
- You will need to use a tamper stick to constantly push the smoothie ingredients down in order for it to blend and reach a thick but smooth consistency. If your blender doesn't have a tamper stick, add a little more milk at a time- this will make the smoothie not as thick, but it will still taste great!
- Once blended, pour the smoothie into a bowl and top with granola, chia seeds, and fresh fruit.
