Yesterday I shared a delicious watermelon smoothie recipe here on the blog, and today I have another similar recipe to share with you, this time a yummy watermelon smoothie bowl recipe. I’m on a bit of a health kick at the moment, and have been enjoying experimenting with making myself different smoothie bowls for breakfast – they’re healthy, delicious and so easy to make. This recipe is great to serve up with breakfast, as a refreshing snack or even a healthy dessert – perfect for keeping kids (and adults!) hydrated in the hot weather we’re experiencing at the moment.
I’ve presented this recipe as a smoothie bowl which is really thick and should be eaten with a spoon, but you could also make it as a simple smoothie in a glass – just skip the freezing step, add 3 or four ice cubes to the recipe and use chilled fruit for a thinner smoothie that’s easier to drink.
Feel free to swap ingredients around to suit your diet or tastes – the soya milk could be replaced with normal milk or another dairy free milk for example, or the raspberries swapped for another berry of your choice if preferred.
This recipe makes one jug full of smoothie mixture which fills approx. 3 smoothie bowls (depending on the size of bowls used).
Watermelon Smoothie Bowl
- 500g watermelon flesh
- 1 large banana
- 75g raspberries
- 200ml soya milk
Optional extras to decorate
- flaked almonds
- handful fresh strawberries
Chop the watermelon into bite size pieces and peel and roughly chop the banana. Line a baking tray or large plastic tub then fill with the melon, banana and raspberries and pop in the freezer to freeze overnight.
Once frozen through, throw all of the fruit into a blender with the soya milk (or other milk of your choice). Blend until smooth. You may need to add a little more milk to the mixture to loosen it if your blender is struggling, but remember that it needs to be nice and thick as it’s being served in a bowl.
Once smooth and lump free, spoon into bowls to serve. Decorate the top with flaked almonds and sliced strawberries or raspberries if wanted.
If you’re having it for breakfast and want to add a little more substance, you could also throw a handful of oats into the mixture before blending.
