What is a smoothie bowl?

Smoothie bowls are a trend catching on at restaurants and at home. Basically smoothie bowls are as simple as they sound—blend a smoothie and pour it into a bowl!

Making a smoothie bowl is simple: make a thick smoothie with fruits or vegetables then add all sorts of toppings and dig in with a spoon. You’ll create a filling breakfast that will sustain you throughout your morning.

Crafting a smoothie bowl at home allows you to carefully select ingredients that fit within your dietary needs. This pumpkin smoothie bowl is vegan and dairy free.

And guess what, you can even turn a smoothie bowl into dessert! Add some candied pecans and a dollop of Cocowhip™ topping and dessert is served!

Pumpkin Season

With the season soon changing to autumn, it’s time to start enjoying pumpkin and pumpkin spice. This pumpkin smoothie bowl tastes like pumpkin pie. The pumpkin pureé and oatmilk combine to create a rich and creamy base. Customize your toppings to add a bit of crunch and color.

I think pumpkin season should be all year long, but most of us get our fill of pumpkin in the months of September, October and November.

Pumpkins are packed with vitamins and minerals. Vitamin A is plentiful in pumpkins and you’ll get some of your daily recommended serving of vitamin C as well.

What ingredients are in Pumpkin Smoothie Bowls?

What toppings are good with pumpkin smoothie bowls?

Your choice of toppings is only limited by your imagination and, of course, what ingredients you have at home. Here we used granola (check out the homemade pumpkin granola I made this week), pepitas (pumpkin seeds), dried cranberries and coconut chips.

A variety of colors and textures make your smoothie bowl a work of art. Get your kids involved and be creative!

Other suggested toppings for smoothie bowls include chia seeds, walnuts, cashews, a sprinkle of pumpkin spice or cinnamon.

Silk® Oat Yeah™

Silk® Oat Yeah™ is a dairy-free alternative to milk that comes in three options: plain, vanilla, and chocolate. Either plain or vanilla would be ideal for this smoothie bowl. Oatmilk is a creamy dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free beverage that you can use just like milk.

Oat Yeah™ is part of Silk’s portfolio of beverages including almondmilk, soymilk, cashewmilk, and coconutmilk. 

Tips for making Smoothie Bowls

A high speed blender works best for making smoothies and smoothie bowls. You’ll want your smoothie to be thick and creamy so that it stays on your spoon. Think more about making a potato soup-like texture rather than a drinkable smoothie.

Speaking of soups, you could turn this pumpkin smoothie bowl breakfast into lunch by heating it up and renaming it pumpkin soup!

If you need to thicken your smoothie for a smoothie bowl, try to add one or more of these ingredients:

  • Frozen, sliced bananas
  • Yogurt alternative such as Coconutmilk Yogurt Alternative from So Delicious®
  • Additional gluten free oats
  • Dates
  • Nuts such as cashews or walnuts
  • Almond butter
  • Ice cubes

If you need to thin your smoothie for a smoothie bowl, try to add one or more of these ingredients:

  • Additional oatmilk
  • Fruit juice such as pure cranberry juice or cherry juice
