I don’t know what it is about eating something, cold and creamy from bowl with a spoon. While many of us wish we could eat ice cream 3 times a day, that isn’t the most well balanced eating pattern.

Smoothie Bowls, that is the answer! They are cold, they are creamy, and actually nourishing! While I still don’t recommend you eat 3 a day, you might be interested in making room for 1 in your day :). That’s why I’ve collected 6 of my favorite smoothie bowl recipes to try out.

PS. I add protein powder to all of my smoothies and you totally don’t have to if that’s not your thing! Here are some real food proteins you can add. However, I cannot promise they will taste as good!

Instead of 1 scoop of protein powder (18-25 grams) try…

Cottage Cheese:

1/2 cup low-sodium, low fat cottage cheese : 14 grams

3/4 cup low-sodium, low fat cottage cheese : 21 grams


1/2 cup plain, low fat greek yogurt : 12 grams

1 cup plain, low fat greek yogurt: 24 grams

1 7-oz. container plain, full fat greek yogurt: 18 grams

1 cup plain, full fat greek yogurt: 20 grams

1 cup vanilla, nonfat greek yogurt or skyr: 24 grams

Pasteurized Egg Whites

3 Tbsp pasteurized liquid egg whites : 5 grams

Pasteurized egg whites are safe to eat uncooked. Regular eggs / egg whites are unsafe and increase your risk of getting a food borne illness.

Silken Tofu

1 slice or 84 grams silken tofu : 6 grams

100 grams of silken tofu: 7 grams

Peanut butter

2 Tbsp : 7 grams

This is a just a quick list of foods with proteins you can add in place of protein powder. It’s by no means exhaustive! Anywhoo, let’s get to the smoothies!
