Take your weekday breakfast to the next level with this protein-packed Peach Smoothie Bowl!
I think I may have found my new go-to breakfast! Have you noticed the smoothie bowl trend that's super popular right now? Well, I decided it was time to give it a try. I'm trying to get in shape for summer, and frankly just improve my eating habits, so healthier eating has been on my mind. I've always been a fan of yogurt and granola for breakfast, and I've been drinking more protein smoothies too, though mostly as snacks. So this protein smoothie bowl seemed like a great idea for something new to add to a weekday breakfast rotation!
Somehow a regular smoothie has never really left me feeling quite satisfied when it comes to breakfast. I like something a little crunchy for breakfast. When I started seeing smoothie bowls all over the place I thought "that could work" - boy, it sure does work! What a perfect option for a quick, healthy and super tasty breakfast!
Why a bowl instead of a tradition smoothie? Well, for starters it's something different! And you know we all like to try something different. Also, putting it in a bowl lets you make the smoothie a little thicker, and then you can top it with all kinds of tasty, crunchy things too!!
These are super quick and easy to make. If you have a single serving blender and are only going to make one, it should work for this. Just make sure the motor is strong enough to grind up the frozen fruit.
So, get your morning started off right with a full serving of fruit and some protein in this tasty smoothie bowl!
notes from the kitchen
- You can make this smoothie thicker by adding a little less milk, or a little more yogurt. The total of the two ingredients should equal ¾ of a cup.
- Smoothie bowls are best when freshly made though they will keep in the refrigerator for a day or two. Wait until just before serving to add the toppings.
- Some other flavors that go well with peach and would make good toppings include coconut, blackberries, cherries, dark chocolate and cinnamon. Be creative and add your own flair to your smoothie bowls!
- I like to top this bowl with my favorite homemade Honey Flax granola, which is super tasty and easy to make!

High Power Blender – I still use an older blender but have supplemented it with a small individual serving one which is perfect for smoothies and smoothie bowls, but if you are in the market for a new blender definitely go with one that does double-duty!

What a great healthy breakfast idea!! And it looks so pretty!!!
I love the combination of blueberries and almond, they work so well together don't they?
Such a pretty way to start the day!
I've avoided the smoothie bowls, because ... I don't know why.
This seems appealing - something about the crunchy topping maybe.
Thanks for sharing this, I may be on board with the smoothies.

I am yet to make a smoothie bowl but if there were one that I would start with, it would be this one. I love peaches! What an awesome way to start the day or for a healthy afternoon snack!

Smoothie bowls! I hardly ever make them but I always admire them. Yours looks easy and delicious and makes me think I could do it. Great start to spring!
Byron Thomas says
Oh, this sounds delicious! I'm seeing a lot of peach recipes starting to surface which tells me summer is on the way. This smoothie would make a great addition to my summer Sunday brunch menu. 🙂
Marisa Franca @ All Our Way says
I haven't been on the smoothie meal replacement bandwagon because I like to chew my food. Now I like to sip my wine. 🙂 With the addition of the granola on top, I could go for this smoothie. The blueberries really look pretty on top.
I'm a big fan of smoothie bowls but haven't made one in quite a while. I guess I just don't do them as much in the colder weather. Love the sound of this one with the peaches and blueberries. Should be perfect for Spring 🙂
