6 Delicious Berry-Based Smoothie Bowl Recipes


We love smoothie bowls because they keep time in the kitchen to a minimum and are an easy way to sneak in your daily fruits and veggies. With summer around the corner and countless berries in season, we’ve rounded up a few recipes that feature different berries and their unique benefits. Swap out ingredients as you see fit -- these refreshing berry-based smoothie bowls are entirely customizable and absolutely delicious.

1. Strawberries:


Packed with Vitamin C, antioxidants and fiber, we love this sweet summer fruit for its ability to top everything from salads to desserts. With a peak growing season of April to September, strawberries make a great option for your summertime smoothie bowl.

This Coconut Berry Smoothie Bowl is not only delightful, but also brimming with superfood fruits and veggies.

Tip: Sneak in some easy greens (or reds) with zero taste such as spinach, kale, zucchini or beets.

2. Blueberries:


These berries are known as a superfood for good reason. Low in calories but high in fiber and essential vitamins, blueberries help strengthen bones, prevent aging skin and promote healthy digestion.

Our Delicious Green Smoothie Bowl uses a 1/2 cup of this antioxidant-rich fruit as the base. The added avocado provides healthy fat for a well-balanced bowl.

Tip: If you have extra avocados, pre-peel and freeze them before they go bad -- you can throw them into your future smoothies!

3. Raspberries:


Rich in color and sweet to taste, raspberries actually provide more vitamin C than oranges, supporting immunity and healthy skin.

What better way to welcome summer than with a raspberry and tropical mango smoothie bowl? This gluten-free, vegan Gingery Mango and Berry Smoothie Bowl is a must-try. Top your bowl with our Matcha Green Tea gr8nola for some extra crunch.

Tip: Sprinkle a teaspoon of hemp and chia seeds on top for extra heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

4. Boysenberries:

A tangy hybrid of the blackberry, raspberry, and loganberry, the boysenberry is rich in natural antioxidants, and promotes healthy brain cells. These health-promoting berries also provide a variety of nutrients including vitamin C, vitamin K and fiber, and are an amazing addition to any smoothie bowl!

We’re in love with this Cauliflower Blueberry Smoothie Bowl -- just substitute boysenberries for the listed blueberries, and you will reaping the bountiful benefits of this tangy fruit. Sprinkle some of our Charcoal Chia gr8nola on top for an extra detoxifying crunch!

Tip: Our secret to a chilled and thick smoothie bowl? Freeze the empty bowl thirty minutes before you make your smoothie. Trust us, it makes a BIG difference!

5. Goji Berries:

Containing 8 amino acids, the goji berry is a superfood unlike any other. The slightly sweet, subtly sour fruit has been found to increase energy and stabilize blood sugar -- the perfect kickstart to your morning routine!

This Goji Berry Smoothie Bowl is a must-try. Garnish with our Coco Cacao gr8nola for added superfood benefits.

Tip: Add some extra protein to your smoothie with your favorite plant-based protein and/or Ripple Protein Pea Milk -- we love these dairy-free options!

6. Blackberries:


The high fiber content in blackberries helps digestion and lowers cholesterol, while the high vitamin C and K content work to support healthy bones. This delicious berry is yummy on its own, but makes your smoothie bowl twice as nice.

This Antioxidant-Packed Blackberry Coconut Smoothie Bowl offers energizing nourishment with all the added blackberry benefits. For extra protein and thickness, add in a scoop of your favorite nut butter.

Tip: Make enough to share with friends and set up a toppings bar!
