It wouldn’t be a smoothie bowl without mouth-watering toppings like chia seeds, granola, fruits, chocolate, and more! Make your smoothie bowl stand out among the crowd and add heaps of these healthy toppings to your next creation.

Granola

Nothing satisfies your taste buds like granola when it comes to the crunch these toasted oats can provide. Choose granola with dried fruits, nuts, or even pieces of dark chocolate! With so many granola options, the possibilities are limitless when decorating your next smoothie bowl creation.

Chia seeds

These tiny seeds won’t add much in flavor, but they will provide significant health benefits. Add 1-2 teaspoons to your next smoothie bowl creation for an extra punch of protein. 

Nut butter 

Add a drizzle of your favorite nut butter to the top of your smoothie bowl. Peanut, almond, and cashew are all great options and add more protein to your smoothie bowl. For those allergic to peanuts, opt for sunflower butter which is 100% allergen-friendly.

Sliced fruit

Pick your favorite fruit and add some slices to top off your smoothie bowl. Adding fruits into your smoothie bowls like banana, apple, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and kiwi are great ways to add a little sweetness without the extra sugar.

Hemp seeds

Hemp seeds are similar in size to chia seeds but have a nutty flavor and a bit of chew to them. Hemp seeds are loaded with micronutrients like iron, magnesium, and potassium and are only around 50 calories per tablespoon.

Goji berries

Goji berries are the epitome of smoothie bowl toppings. These bright red, dried berries can be eaten right out of the bag and have a savory yet sour taste, making them intriguing and addicting! 

Shredded coconut

Looking for some added crunch? Adding coconut flakes to your smoothie bowl makes a great addition to an already-healthy treat. 

Cacao 

Cacao nibs provide you with the taste of chocolate sans all the sugar in every crunchy bite.

Tip: How to make a smoothie bowl thick

How to make a smoothie bowl thick

We can all agree that nobody likes a runny smoothie bowl. Here are some smoothie bowl ingredients and tips to add to your next smoothie session:

1. Use frozen fruit

Incorporating Already frozen fruit into your next smoothie bowl makes the consistency thicker. Take fresh fruit and it in the freezer overnight, or opt to purchase already frozen fruits and veggies. Frozen fruits tend to be cheaper and offer fruits that may not be in season. Mangos, pineapples, strawberries, and blueberries are all great fruits that freeze quickly, or you can buy them already frozen at the store.

2. Use frozen juice

If you plan on incorporating orange juice into your smoothie, try freezing the liquid before blending. You can do this by adding your orange juice to ice cube trays and using it when you are ready to mix. The juice tastes the same but leaves your smoothie super thick — just how we want it!

3. Add oats or chia seeds

A handful of oats or a scoop of chia seeds will not only add some extra protein and fiber but act as a sponge for some of the excess liquid in your smoothie bowl. After just a few minutes, you’ll notice your chia seeds or oats absorbing the juice from the smoothie and the seeds expanding, making a thicker texture
