It is blood orange season, at least for a few more weeks, so the time is perfect for another blood orange recipe. Something as simple as this blood orange smoothie bowl, doesn’t really require a strict recipe, but it is worth sharing at least for inspiration. If you follow me on social media, you may already know that I make a lot of smoothies. I like them a lot, but my husband loves smoothies even more. He’ll always make a quick smoothie, if he is craving a snack or there is nothing ready to eat at the moment. I’m not so good at controlling what I eat, so I sometimes reach for unhealthy snacks. But the fact that smoothies and smoothie bowls are super easy to make, minus the need to wash the blender afterwards, makes love them even more!

Blood oranges are rich in antioxidants and have a distinct, fruity, raspberry like flavor and deep maroon color on the inside. If you are looking for more blood orange recipes to try, you may want to check these out:

What is a smoothie bowl?

Smoothie bowls are thick smoothies, served in a bowl and topped with various toppings – fresh or frozen fruit, nuts, seeds, chopped chocolate, cacao nibs, coconut flakes. Smoothie bowls are perfect for breakfast, healthy snack or desserts. There is no rule in making smoothie bowls. This is your opportunity to get creative.

Smoothie bowls definitely feel more like a meal and smoothies are more like a drink!

Why to make a smoothie bowl? You may be wondering  why make a smoothie bowl over a smoothie. But you can drink even the thickest smoothie with one of those thick smoothie straws. This is right, but with a smoothie bowl, you’ve got a lot of good stuff on top (sliced fruit, nuts and seeds), that you can not eat with a straw.

This brings me to the next question – How do you eat a smoothie bowl?

You serve the smoothie bowl in a cereal bowl and eat it with a spoon. Or this is just at least how I like it.

What do you need to make a smoothie bowl?

You technically don’t need to make a smoothie bowl, You can always make a thick smoothie and enjoy it in a cup. But if you prefer to serve it in a bowl and enjoy this healthy treat like your morning oatmeal bowl, you have to make a smoothie bowl.

How to make the smoothie bowl thick?

You’ll have to use less liquid and more fruit, preferably frozen. It is that easy! Blend everything in a blender.

How many calories are in a smoothie bowl?

Since we are making a bowl, we need some more ingredients to fill it, than when you make a smoothie. I’d say that the smoothie bowls that I often make are almost twice more in calories than the smoothies that I make.

What toppings to use for a smoothie bowl?

Get creative and use toppings of your choice. I like to use toppings that correspond with the recipe – like for example in this blood orange smoothie bowl, I used sliced blood orange, sliced banana, chopped pistachios (for a pop of color), cacao nibs and shredded coconut. I love the look of frozen berries on top of smoothie bowls, but I did not use any in this one. But if you make a berry smoothie bowl, the look of frosty, frozen berries on top, will make it look gorgeous!

What ingredients do you need for this blood orange smoothie bowl?

I used almond milk, frozen banana, blood oranges, Greek Yogurt, almond butter, hemp seeds, shredded coconut and sweetener (optional). Some simple ingredients and 2 minutes to make.
