Wake up with our beautiful and oh-so-delicious recipe for smoothie bowl with a pop of colour. Top your smoothie bowl with fresh berries and exotic fruits like mango and dragon fruit, and garnish with edible flowers for a finishing touch. It is a great breakfast option packed full of flavour and something the whole family can enjoy. Need a quick and simple breakfast or a pick-me-up snack during the day? Then you cannot go wrong with this recipe.


Smoothie bowl
  • Blend Skyr, bananas and the other ingredients for approx. 2 minutes into a thick, even smoothie.
  • Put the smoothie in 2 bowls and add oats, dragon fruit, mango, and berries on top. Garnish with edible flowers and serve.

Thick smoothie bowls are best enjoyed fresh immediately after making them. However, you can store any leftovers for up to 24 hours in the fridge and retain the flavours. Remove the toppings from the smoothie bowls and pour the smoothie into an airtight container before placing it in the refrigerator.


Make a breakfast to-go and transfer the smoothie bowl into a jar or container to bring along with you. It is also perfect for lunch or a snack at school or work. If you want to save time, you can prepare make-ahead smoothie packs by placing the fruits for your smoothie bowl in a freezer bag in the freezer. It is a fantastic way to get most of the prep work out of the way, so you only have to blend it all.


For a thicker consistency, peel the bananas and freeze them for a few hours or the night before and blend the frozen bananas with the frozen berries. When adding the topping to the bowls, use a melon baller to scoop out small balls of dragon fruit. It adds a nice touch to the overall look and is also a great way to make perfect bite-size balls of fruit. If the smoothie bowl is not cold enough, add 1-2 ice cubes when blending.

Questions about smoothie bowls

With Skyr, fresh fruit and berries, this breakfast is great for a busy morning or a snack on the go. Read below and find out how to make your new favourite breakfast with Skyr, bananas, frozen berries, vanilla powder and a fresh and fruity topping full of flavour. Our recipe for smoothie bowls is delicious, quick, and simply irresistible.

What is a smoothie bowl?
A smoothie bowl is, in all its simplicity, just a thick smoothie in a bowl served with delicious toppings such as fresh fruit, nuts, oats and chia seeds. Instead of drinking the frozen, creamy beverage, you eat it with a spoon, and it is considered a fresh, flavourful meal with loads of colour. It is an immensely popular breakfast option as it is very versatile, and you can use any frozen fruits you like to blend into puree and enjoy the smoothie bowl all year round with different toppings.
How to make a smoothie bowl?
Make a smoothie bowl in a matter of minutes by blending Skyr, ripe bananas, frozen wild berries, and a bit of vanilla powder for added sweetness – the smoothie should have a thick and even consistency. Pour the smoothie into two bowls, add oats, fresh fruit and berries and garnish beautifully with edible flowers like, for example, horned violet. Enjoy it right away!
How to make a thick smoothie bowl?
The key to a thick smoothie bowl is frozen fruit. The thick consistency of the smoothie makes the toppings stay in place on top without sinking to the bottom of the bowl. Adding bananas to the mixture not only adds sweetness but also helps with the thickness. You can add any fruit to the smoothie but if you only have fresh fruit at home, place them in the freezer for a few hours or overnight. Most fresh fruit is too watery, and you will end up with a soup-like texture instead of a thick smoothie bowl.
Can you freeze a smoothie bowl?
Smoothie bowls should be enjoyed fresh as soon as they are made. However, you can freeze the smoothie in a sealable freezer bag or an airtight container without any toppings or garnish – but do not freeze more than once. Make sure you remove as much air as possible when sealing the container or freezer bags to retain the flavours of the smoothie. When you are ready to serve the bowls, let the smoothie thaw in the fridge for a few hours or overnight and serve it with toppings and edible flowers. If it is too watery, you can add more Skyr and blend it.
How to make a smoothie bowl without a blender?
Do not despair if you have neither a blender nor a food processor; you can still enjoy a smoothie bowl even though it will not be as smooth and thick. Instead of using frozen fruit, stick with soft, fresh fruit that you can smash with a fork, potato masher or the back of a spoon. Make the smoothie thinner by adding liquid, such as coconut or almond milk, or fruit juice, if you also want to make the smoothie sweeter. Use a whisk or spatula to mix all the ingredients well, pour the smoothie into a bowl, and add the toppings.

Forest fruit smoothie bowl

Discover our pink smoothie bowl with frozen forest fruit and ripe bananas. Similar to a smoothie but only much thicker and creamier, these beautiful, fresh, and colourful bowls are easy and fast to make in less than 15 minutes. The forest fruit adds a tart, slightly sweet flavour that pairs wonderfully with the sweet bananas and vanilla. It is a satisfying blend of flavours and textures that will make it impossible to put down your spoon. A forest fruit smoothie bowl can have, for example, forest fruits like redcurrant, raspberry, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, and strawberry, making for a delicious mix of flavours when blended.

Aesthetic smoothie bowl toppings

Smoothie bowl toppings are the cherry on top and are as beautiful as they are versatile. Our toppings add flavour, texture and loads of colour to your morning breakfast. The sliced mango has a sweet, citrusy melon-like taste with an almost creamy texture that fits well in with the mildly sweet soft textured dragon fruit balls. Both fruits balance the tartness of the forest fruits and the slightly sour skyr. Add a sprinkle of oats on top to break up the soft and creamy textures of the smoothie. With a colourful and bright appearance, these smoothie bowls are a welcome sight you do not want to miss in the morning.

Add your own touch

Get creative! Vary your smoothie bowl using different frozen fruits. How about making a mango smoothie bowl with forest fruit? Blend frozen mangos, forest fruits, vanilla powder, and bananas with vanilla skyr. Top the creamy, yellow beauty with oats, coconut flakes, mango chunks, and your favourite berries. For a smoothie bowl with dragon fruit, freeze slices or balls of the fruit and blend with the rest of the ingredients. Decorate the bright pink smoothie with slices of kiwi and banana, diced dragon fruit, oats, fresh berries, and maybe some diced pineapple for a tropical feeling.

Smoothie bowls are a terrific way to cool down during the summer, but you can easily make a winter option with warm spices. A dash of cinnamon never hurts; add a kick of spice when blending the smoothie with bananas and berries.

Have fun with the toppings, and try adding granola, shredded coconut and different nuts and seeds, like almonds and chia seeds or dates, for more sweetness and a thicker consistency. You can also brighten the smoothie bowl by adding fresh mint or ginger. The combinations of flavours and toppings are endless, and you can change it up any way you like.
