    Tips for The Best Cranberry Smoothie Bowl

    • I recommend using frozen bananas with this recipe and personally, I like to use 2. The frozen bananas keep the smoothie colder longer and also seem to hold the toppings up a bit better.
    • Add water last, only if needed. Depending on what kind of yogurt you use…sometimes I don’t even need it.
    • Add more or less honey to adjust sweetness.

    Make-Ahead Smoothie Bowl

    Smoothie bowls are delicious, nutritious and also a great make-ahead breakfast. If you are looking for quick and easy breakfast ideas, bookmark this cranberry smoothie bowl recipe. You can make the smoothie the night before and store it in the fridge until the morning. Eat it in a bowl, or pour it in a cup to take with you on the go.

    You can also prep the ingredients and freeze them in a ziplock bag. Just dump them in the blender in the morning, and in a couple of minutes, you have a delicious and healthy breakfast.

    Are Smoothie Bowls Healthy?

    Cranberries are a powerhouse ingredient for our health. Bananas are rich in potassium and fiber and can help with digestive issues. And honey is packed with antioxidants and it’s good for your well-being. It’s also packed with protein thanks to Greek yogurt so it’s both filling and delicious.

    And if you decide to top your smoothie bowl with coconut flakes, chia seeds, almonds, and bananas, you are benefiting from even more superfoods.
