Blueberries are great – they taste great, and they’re also one of the most antioxidant-rich fruits you can eat. And they make a perfect smoothie bowl flavor, as I found out when I made these blueberry smoothie bowls.

I love making smoothie bowls for breakfast, especially in the summertime. They only take about 5 minutes to prepare, and you can make them the night before and have them ready for breakfast in the morning.

I’d suggest using fresh, in-season berries if you have them, for the sole reason that they have much better flavor. But if not, frozen blueberries will do fine as well. I used frozen blueberries here, but can’t wait to make it again with fresh berries come summer!

For the rest of the ingredients, the nice thing is that it’s all mostly pantry items. Rolled oats, ground flax, raw almonds, poppy seeds and ground cardamom.

Can You Add Protein Powder?

Yes! You can add your favorite protein powder to the blending mixture for these smoothie bowls. I add this soy protein isolate to my smoothie bowls and it blends in well with the taste.

What Kind of Plant Based Milk Should I Use?

In my opinion, pretty much any plant based milk will taste good for this smoothie bowl. It can be sweetened or plain. Since the smoothie bowl has a sweet taste already, adding a sweetened plant based milk won’t affect the taste.

I used delicious oat milk in my smoothie bowl, which was lovely! Here’s how I make my oat milk at home.

    Smoothie bowls are my new favorite summer breakfast, too! I don’t like drinking regular smoothies through a straw or from a cup, so making them in the bowl is the way to go for me. Plus I love that I can add nuts and chunkier ingredients (you know, the ones that would tend to make smoothies get “gritty”) right into the smoothie bowl, whole.
