These blueberry oatmeal smoothie bowls will make you feel like you’re eating a nice dessert for breakfast, although they are actually made with only nutritious, plant-based ingredients – and no added sugar.
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.
Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie Bowls
- 1 cup plant based milk (I used oat milk)
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 Tbsp ground flax
- 1 tsp ground cardamom
- 1 Tbsp protein powder (optional)
- raw almonds
- poppy seeds
- rolled oats
- poppy seeds
- Add the "blend" items to the blender and blend for about 30 seconds, then transfer to bowls. You can eat them now or cover and chill until morning if making the night before. They will thicken in the fridge.
- When ready to eat, add the toppings and enjoy!
