DIY Smoothie Bowl - A purple berry smoothie bowl

Back on my vacation in Tallahassee I wanted to go for breakfast, nothing big, something light and refreshing. My friend suggested smoothie bowls and I honestly did not really now what to expect by it but it sounded like fun. She took me to Robeks and I tried one of their smoothie bowls and fell in love with it :) It was a different kind of breakfast but exactly what I wanted at that time.

Now, it is time to recreate it! Looking at pinterest I got inspired of different flavors. This time I chose a purple berry smoothie bowl. It will be a start. I am planning on also posting a yellow mango pineappley smoothie bowl and a nutella inspired smoothie bowl a little later on :)

There are tons of possible toppings, every kind of fruit, nuts, oats, seeds and even chocolate. As I am always very indecisive, I decided to call this post DIY Smoothie Bowl - I will put out there some of the possible toppings, but you can decide which ones to take and how to arrange them :)

Some of the toppings are even called "superfood" because they are supposed to be nutrient-rich and beneficial for health and well-being (chia seeds, hemp seeds, coconut, superfruits such as pomegranate, goji, acai berries, etc.).


  • 2 cups frozen berries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup vanilla soya milk
  • 3 Tbsp yoghurt (greek or berry flavor)

A Small Selection of Toppings
  • rasberries
  • blueberries
  • banana - sliced
  • pomegranate seeds
  • oats (or oat clusters)
  • hazelnuts - roughly chopped 
  • coconut flakes
  • chia seeds
  • sunflower seeds
  • chocolate chips 


  1. Prepare the smoothie: Put the frozen fruit, the milk and yoghurt in the blender. Start with the liquid to make it easier for the blades to crush the frozen berries. Blend till its smooth. If it is too thick, or the blades are not able to cut everything, then add 1-2 tablespoon cold water or orange juice. If you like it sweeter, add a teaspoon honey or sugar. 
  2. Add the toppings you like and arrange them to your liking. Be creative :)
