My Favorite Smoothie Bowl Recipes

Easy and delicious vegan smoothie bowls

Today I’m sharing some of my go-to smoothie bowl recipes! I love making them when I’m feeling a little bored of oatmeal or regular smoothies because they feel extra special while not having to go through extra effort. Read on for my favorite smoothie bowls including two brand new recipes!


Dreamy Almond Butter Vegan Smoothie

Rich and creamy almond butter vegan smoothies

Our go-to breakfast this summer has been these energizing almond butter vegan smoothies. They remind me of ice cream because they are so thick and creamy. I thought I could never skip my morning peanut butter smoothie until I ran out of peanut butter one day and turned to a jar of creamy almond butter. Since then I haven’t gone back!


Berry Acai Bowl

Vegan homemade acai bowls with gluten-free granola

Today I’m sharing my recipe for a perfect vegan acai bowl. As you may know from my weekend recap post, I discovered acai bowls and became totally hooked on them! So obviously when I got back to San Diego the first thing we did was head to the grocery store to get ingredients to recreate our own.


My Favorite Recipes of May

While I love creating new recipes from scratch, it’s not exactly something I do too often. What I really love is the actual act of cooking and then photographing the finished result. Recipe development is tough so I usually only come up with a couple of new recipes a month. So when I’m not creating my own recipes, I turn to my favorite cookbooks and blogs to make delicious dinners for Thomas and myself. So I decided I’ll be sharing some of my favorites on the blog more often. I hope it helps to inspire some of you who also are looking for new meal ideas. I try to avoid labor intensive recipes on the weeknights so many of these are a cinch to whip up! As you will learn after reading this post, I turn to Chloe Coscarelli’s recipes a lot! That’s because they never let me down and can be easily made gluten-free! I also really love The Plant Strong Vegan’s recipes lately so you’ll see one of hers included as well.

p.s. All of these recipes are boyfriend approved! That’s always crucial before declaring a recipe is a fave!


The Ultimate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl

This creamy and delicious peanut butter smoothie bowl is the perfect treat! It can serve as breakfast, dessert, or both! Crunchy chocolate chips and dreamy peanut butter swirls will send you over the moon.


Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie by Vegan À La Mode (Vegan and Gluten-Free)

Peanut butter smoothies are one of my favorite things. I love to switch up the flavors of my peanut butter smoothies by adding strawberries or in this case cacao. This one is one of my favorites because there’s no better combo than peanut butter and chocolate. The peanut butter adds protein while the cacao is energizing. It feels like such a treat too because it’s a sweet breakfast but contains no added sweeteners!
