Strawberry Basil and Roasted Beet Smoothie Bowl

This was my first attempt at a smoothie bowl and it was a winner. I made it two mornings in a row and again the next week with a modified recipe. This strawberry basil and roasted beet smoothie bowl will brighten your morning.

Smoothies are great on the go, but if you have time to eat at home the smoothie bowl is the way to go because you can add toppings with different textures. It will be more satisfying and might make you feel fuller for longer.

The fresh basil along with the vibrant red strawberries and beets in this smoothie bowl is such a delicious combination.

I topped mine with banana, nectarines, coconut chips and dark chocolate covered almonds from Vitacost.

I also sneaked in some romaine lettuce which has a mild taste but a ton of nutrition. You won’t even know it’s there!

I prefer using roasted beets, but you can use raw, boiled or steamed as well.

I use the Nutribullet for my smoothies which has been amazing. It blends and extracts pretty much any food. I’ve tried both the 600W and the 900W one, and they both work great. I definitely recommend it if you’re in the market for a blender/smoothie maker.

  1. I like it, but I need to buy almost all of the ingredients!


    1. I hate when that happens: when you find an awesome recipe online and really want to make it but you don’t have most of the ingredients.


  2. That looks simply amazing! 🙂


  3. It looks amazing! I have to try it sometime!
