Our family has been on a smoothie bowl kick lately. I have been trying so hard to get them to eat breakfast...and more fruit, actually...more food in general. They just don't eat, and it's been a huge challenge...especially my toddler Dani. She is at the age where she wants to be in control of what she eats. Luckily, I have been having some luck with these smoothie bowls. Don't they look yummy?!!!
So of course I want to share the recipe with you guys. This recipe for this easy Blueberry Muffin Smoothie Bowl is pretty simple and easy. Plus it tastes like a blueberry muffin, it gets gobbled up pretty quickly! One recipe is enough to feed my three youngest, and is a great way to use up all the fruits in the fridge. Make sure to freeze those fruits that are getting a little to ripe to eat fresh. Just toss them in a freezer bag. Then they will be ready to use whenever you want to make a smoothie.
To make a Blueberry Muffin Smoothie Bowl, you will need a frozen ripe banana, blueberries, vanilla Greek yogurt, milk, steel cut oats and cinnamon. I like that these are items that are usually in my kitchen.
Now it's time to make your Blueberry Muffin Smoothie Bowl. Trust me, it's super easy.
First, combine bananas, blueberries, Greek Yogurt and milk in a large blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
Next, add the steel cut oats and cinnamon. Blend until smooth.
Pour into bowl, and top with toppings. Serve cold, immediately. You can put in the freezer for a few minutes if you need too. Doesn't it look delicious! My kids love it for breakfast or an afternoon snack. It's a great way to use up any leftover fruit, or a good way to get your kids to eat more fruit.
