Tips

If your goal is to make a refreshing cold meal, consider chilling the fresh berries in the fridge for a while before serving. The smoothie should be cold, and by keeping the fresh toppings in the fridge, you maintain a low temperature for longer.

Tips

Take a little time to consider how you want to arrange the toppings. Consider starting with the large ones, such as berries or fruit, and then move on to granola, chia seeds, and the like afterwards. This allows you to present all toppings without hiding any of them below others.

Blue spirulina smoothie bowl

A rainbow of toppings

These colourful smoothies are perfect for starting your day on a cheerful note. But there is no need to limit the colours to the smoothies, so why not turn the whole thing into a culinary rainbow? Find colourful and flavourful toppings to enhance the cheerfulness and entice your eyes.

Berries are always a good choice as smoothie bowl toppings. Use raspberries and currant on the pink smoothie bowl and blueberries and blackberries on the blue smoothie bowl to enhance the two different colours. You can also choose other colourful and fruity toppings, either some that are similar in colour, so they match pink and blue respectively, or some that are different, for example, green kiwi slices or orange mango cubes, to create a beautiful contrast.

Although granola and chia seeds do not add much colour, we use them as toppings in this recipe. Both are good on blue as well as pink smoothie bowl as they provide flavour and substance. Also, the neutral colours leave more spotlight for the other ingredients. Banana slices can do the same.
