Strawberry PB Smoothie Bowls

The smoothie bowl craze has been going strong for the past few years, and what’s not to love. Rather than drinking your smoothie, making it thicker allows you to add some toppings and eat it with a spoon! This combination made with bananas, strawberries was absolutely delicious and will be on repeat again. It literally takes 5 minutes to make, so it’s great for weekday breakfasts (just make sure you freeze the strawberries the night before).

This recipe is slightly adapted from Lindsay Cotter’s cookbook, Nourishing Superfood Bowls Cookbook (affil link). What a gorgeous cookbook filled with wholesome, complete meals in just one bowl. Her recipes are gluten-free and allergy friendly, with vegan, vegetarian and Paleo options.

I added some toppings to my bowl for some texture and color, which increases the calories and weight watcher points. So keep that in mind, but if you want to keep it light, some fresh sliced strawberries or blueberries would work fine.

Smoothie Bowls Recipe Notes:

  • For Paleo option, use almond butter in place of peanut butter.
  • If your peanut butter is too thick and isn’t smooth after microwaving, you can add a drop of coconut oil.
  • To reduce calories and sugar, omit the maple syrup and extra toppings.

  1. Can this be prepped the night before?

  2. Delicious smoothie!

  3. So easy, tasty, and quick to make. I enjoyed this so much more than I thought I was going to. I didn’t drizzle peanut butter on top because I thought it would be a bit much but I sprinkled a little coconut flakes, toasted coconut granola, chia seeds and a few blueberries… so delicious. I will keep this in my rotation. The recipe is easy to remember too. Thank you Gina!

  4. Delicious! I made 1/2 the recipe to achieve 1 serving. I’m not a fan of bananas but enjoyed this. I think the ginger helped mask the taste for me.  I ended up drinking this because it wasn’t thick enough? Not sure why? I used frozen berries + fresh banana. Maybe banana should be frozen? 

  5. This smoothie bowl is absolutely delicious!!! Can’t wait to make it again! Mine wasn’t thick enough so I will work on that for next time.

  6. I keep bags of spinach in my freezer in a ziploc bag (pressing out the air so they’re flat) and then add a handful of the frozen spinach to my smoothies. It adds a ton of fiber with no taste of spinach! The bowls are a nice change to the morning routine.

  7. Can you make it the night before?

  8. This sounds amazing. Any recommendations instead of the banana or can I make this without the banana?

  9. Great start to the morning! I made a single portion, using almond butter and then sliced up the remaining 1/2 banana and a sprinkle of chia seeds to top it off.

  10. I don’t know why I was so reluctant to try this recipe, but I’m so glad I did! It was delicious and I’m looking forward to making it again (and again!)

  11. Oh, wow! This is so good! I had to use blueberries instead of strawberries, because my husband is allergic. But this tastes exactly like a PB&J in a bowl! Very pleasant surprise. 

  12. I was skeptical about this recipe at first, assuming that I would be hungry 5 minutes later. But oh my goodness, not only is this totally delicious, it is surprisingly filling and satisfying. I find myself craving it now! I recommend adding the optional ingredients, particularly the slivered almonds. The crunch adds just the right amount of texture.

  13. This was pretty good. It’s not overly sweet, which might turn some people off, but I enjoyed it. Adding toppings and such definitely help make it feel more like a meal. 

  14. So yummy and filling! I think I will try next time to sneak some spinach in for some veggies 

  15. This was surprisingly good. I used vanilla almond milk and about 2 tablespoons of peanut butter for 1 serving. I also threw in some spinach. 

  16. This recipe is amazing! The smoothie bowls are beautiful and delicious. The addition of cinnamon and ginger makes for a really flavorful smoothie. 

  17. I am confused. Under nutrition information it says the serving is 1 smoothie bowl, but above the recipe, it says this makes 2 servings. So when it is used as part of the weekly menus, are you supposed to consume 1 smoothie bowl, or split it into 2 servings and eat 1/2 the recipe?? I understand that the nutrition information is for 1 smoothie bowl, but I’m not sure how much to eat for breakfast. If we are only supposed to eat 1/2 of the recipe, then shouldn’t the nutrition information match, as that would be 1 serving? Please let me know. Thanks.

  18. If making the smoothie bowl for one, is it better make 1/2 recipe or does it work tp keep 1/2 the recipie for the next day?

  19. I really wish the weekly meal plan would be sent out earlier. Sunday morning does not leave enough time to shop and prep. I work a full time job and weekends are for catching up on house chores. Could they be sent out a week ahead of time? Or maybe I can just start with a past week.

  20. My smoothies came out really runny…. sounds weird but did I miss something?

    • Did you use frozen fruit?

      • Should banana be frozen too, or just the strawberries? Haven’t made it yet, just checking in advance!

      • Recipe is great! Thanks Gina!

        I need your guidance because we’re a family of 2….a vegetarian and a diabetic. And I love your weekly planner recipes however I have trouble trying to figure out the best way to prepare for the 2 of us. Any suggestions?

  21. I’m a smoothie nut and I’ve made this recipe 3 times now. It’s perfect and delicious! I add egg white protein powder to give it some extra protein and raw spinach to sneak in some veggies. I’m pregnant and this has been a great way to increase my protein and fruits and veggies AND hit my seeet cravings! 🙂

    • Hj Lori where do you get the egg white powder. I’m currently trying for my second baby and have been told to up the protein by my trainer

  22. Hi! is it OK to freeze it over night and drink the rest the next day?

  23. I love your recipes! Thank you for also gives measurements in grams! I measure everything on a scale instead of with tools now.

  24.  I am a 61-year-old grandmother who has decided I really need to get healthy. My step daughter turned me onto your blog. Yesterday I printed out a bunch of recipes and had one of your scallop dishes for dinner and this morning I had a smoothie bowl. Both were spectacular!   I am so excited to try all your amazing recipes. I’ll like and say is Yum! 

  25. I am not doing weight watcher ,but I was wondering if i could still use your cookbooks to lose weight and if you have any advice for beginners thanks

  26. What a fabulous breakfast! The ginger & cinnamon are subtle but necessary to make it taste complex. Love!

  27. I made this but I used a packet of Stevia in the Raw instead of syrup. It turned out so yummy. However, slightly runny. Wondering if I blended too much? I think next time I will add just a bit of Greek Yogurt just in case. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

  28. i am looking forward to trying this, but i loathe bananas. is there a recommended substitute?

  29. MMMM delicious. I love this b-fast! Thankyou!

  30. Made this recipe this morning. Quick delicious breakfast!

  31. Absolutely delicious!

  32. I’m a nanny made the bowl smoothie for the kids they love it !!! Soooo good thanks 

  33. Question
    Does the 7 smartpoints include any toppings or just the smoothie bowl?
    Can’t wait to try it.

  34. If using skim milk instead, will that affect texture and point value?

  35. Perfect Yummy Smoothie for the breakfast! A handful of raisins on it would be more yummy 🙂

    Thanks for the recipe

  36. This looks delicious, but please calculate the calories again – 3 T of nut butter alone are more than 260 calories. Thanks in advance for double-checking/correcting!

  37. Does the calorie count include toppings and if so, how do I measure them??? My guess is that they are counted separately. Am I right?

    This recipe sounds delish. I can’t wait to try it, but I want to count if right.

  38. Made this today with almond butter and used chia and slivered almonds as a topping. Was delicious! 

  39. Is it possible to substitute powdered peanut butter? That would certainly make a difference calorie/point-wise. Wasn’t sure if it would make it too runny?

  40. Oh, I see your other comment – it was PB that was divided.  

  41. Gina, this was delicious but I think the calories are off.  2 Tablespoons of nut butter are 32g (so 16g for each Tbsp).  You put 2 Tbsp in the smoothie and drizzled 1 Tbsp on top so that’s 3 Tbsp of PB or almond butter. which is = to 48g or 285 calories.  1 cup of strawberries is 81 calories,  1 cup unsweetened almond milk is 40 cal.  Brings the total to 406 calories.  Unless I’m reading something wrong? 

  42. 3 tablespoons of peanut butter is 10 FS points. How is the whole dish only 7 points? Do you use a special kind of peanut butter? Thanks!

  43. Could you use 2% milk instead of almond milk?

    To save on calories, you could use sugar free syrup.

    Looks yummy and can’t wait to try it!

  44. I’m allergic to bananas, what would be a good substitute in recipes like this or would it be okay to omit it all together? I know bananas add to the texture and thickness so I’m not sure.

    • I can’t have banana either, for sweetness I use pears, for thickening I use avocado.

    • Same here – I’m not allergic, but I absolutely detest bananas, and get so disappointed when I see a recipe that looks otherwise delicious but then it’s ruined by slopping a banana into it haha. Depending on the recipe, Greek yogurt can add thickness, while applesauce adds sweetness if that’s what you’re after. Some people swear by avocados too, though I’ve never tried that. Good luck!

      • You could use frozen mango, dates, or even avocado! Or extra yogurt. Totally works!.

      • I also detest bananas. So do you add both avocados AD pears or just one or the other? How much yogurt do you add? Thanks.

  45. Absolutely delicious! I substituted granola for the almond topping, which made it super appealing for my little ones, and gave at a tasty crunch. Thank you for the fast, fun and nutritious breakfast idea for those busy school mornings!

  46. How about using PB2 in place of other nut butters?

  47. Can Kefir yogurt be substituted for the almond milk? Would be higher protein. Usually use the kefir in my smoothies and delicious results. 

  48. Gina. Is there anyway to use PB2 peanut butter and then add coconut oil to thin out or just make it looser and drizzle?

  49. OH and just saw comments, sorry was that my typo?! YIKES!

  50. Thank you so much Gina! This looks amazing! I love your almond toppings too. That drizzle and swirl though…. perfection. 😉

  51. Hey, Gina! Is it possible to use Almond Coconut milk in place of Almond milk? Thanks!

  52. Two questions; 1) Agree with Dena….why is the almond milk divided? 2) Is this a make-and-take, or does it need to be eaten right away? Does something nasty happen to it if it sits in a refrige for an hour? (ok, 3 questions – smile)

    • Sorry, typo! The peanut butter is divided. Yes it should be eaten right away.

      • Just curious, but why does it have to be eaten right away? I made this and put the two servings in the fridge for an “emergency” snack for later, and it is fine. If it’s meant to be eaten right away, I would say just half the recipe, as I am not going to be eating both servings right away.

  53. I was just curious why the almond milk is supposed to be divided. Is that actually supposed to follow the nut butter? And what do you whisk together with the 1 Tbsp nut butter?

  54. Sounds yummy!  I will be making this tomorrow morning!  Question: why is the almond milk divided?
