- Frozen strawberries. Frozen berries work best for this recipe.

- Strawberry jam. Low sugar or no-sugar is okay to use.
- Milk or Almond milk. You can really use any milk you want: soy, cashew, almond, 1%, 2%, whole, etc

If strawberries aren’t your thing, you can use any fruit and jam. Plus, they don’t need to be the same. Try frozen blueberries with peach or raspberry jam.
Furthermore, you can leave it plain or add toppings which are really fun. Some suggestions to try as toppings are
- Toasted coconut
- Date syrup or more jam or jelly
- Raisins or dried cranberries
- Poppyseeds, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds

Essentials to have for smoothie bowls
It’s easier to eat healthy when you have healthy ingredients on hand. For me, fueling my day with a healthy breakfast makes me feel better, work better, and eat better the rest of the day. This is just a short list of ingredients to make different smoothies.
- Frozen fruit. I always have frozen bananas and mangos in the freezer. You’ll want to read How to Freeze Bananas for a Smoothie. Strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries make great smoothies.
- Also stock up on vegetables (I buy in bulk when fruits and vegetables are on sale and in season at the farmers’ market and freeze them.) However, I prefer fresh spinach and kale so I get it fresh each week.
- Honey, agave, and dates for sweetening if needed.
- Greek yogurt has more protein so I keep it on hand. It’s also great with granola and cereal.
- I also keep Almond milk. Keep whatever milk you drink on hand. You can freeze milk in ice cube trays for smoothies and smoothie bowls. (Don’t freeze milk in glass.)
- Nuts, seeds, nut butters (peanut, almond, cashew) and protein powder are all good to keep on hand for smoothies.
- I highly recommend a Nutri Bullet for making your smoothie bowls. It’s a beast. I never reach for my blender anymore.

- Process on high until well blended. In the last few seconds of blending, add the protein powder if using.
