On most weekdays, I grab a quick breakfast on my way out the door. I usually don’t have a lot of time in the morning yet I know how important it is to eat a good breakfast. But on days when I have the luxury of a little more time, I like to give myself a little extra treat.
Smoothie bowls are all the rage right now. A little more substantial than a smoothie, smoothie bowls are thicker and as the name suggests, you eat them in a bowl with a spoon instead of drinking them with a straw. While smoothies are usually something you take on the go, smoothie bowls are a little more special because you can sit down and enjoy them as a meal. Plus, you can also top them with a bunch of yummy and nutritious toppings. Diced fruit, berries, granola, nuts, seeds, edible flowers or pretty much anything else you can think of. The sky’s the limit!
I usually go with Greek yogurt as the base for my smoothies and smoothie bowls. But I wanted to make my Tropical Smoothie Bowl vegan so for this recipe, I use dairy-free yogurt (Sill Dairy-Free yogurt alternative).
There are plenty of yogurt alternatives on the market that have a creamy texture similar to traditional yogurt. They’re typically made with soy, coconut, almonds, cashews, flaxseed or oats. Many of them boast a good amount of protein, calcium and Vitamin D. They’re great options for those who are lactose intolerant, vegan or anyone avoiding dairy products in general.
How to Make This Tropical Smoothie Bowl
To make this smoothie bowl, simply blend the dairy-free yogurt with frozen mango chunks and some coconut milk in a high speed blender. You can use fresh mango if it’s in season but frozen mango will give a thicker, creamier consistency. Then, pour the mixture into a bowl and have fun adding your toppings! To stick with the tropical theme, I top mine off with some more diced mango, slices of vibrant, green kiwi and dried coconut flakes. And finally, for extra texture and a boost of omega-3s, fiber and antioxidants, I sprinkled on some chia seeds. This smoothie bowl is the perfect dish to get you going in the morning and it will make you feel like you’ve been transported to a tropical paradise, all in the comfort of your own home.
