Tropical Smoothie Bowls

Tropical Smoothie Bowl made with Aloha Daily Good Greens Powder. It's the perfect way to kick-start your day with tons of nutrients ! Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com

I fell out of love with smoothies awhile ago. I didn’t really mean too….it’s just that I prefer to eat food rather than drink it.

But recently….I fell in love HARD with smoothie bowls because it’s a smoothie IN A BOWL.

It’s a thicker smoothie— one you eat with a spoon. No straw necessary.

Just a spoon and TOPPINGS.

And it’s allllll about the toppings. Because it’s almost like having a bowl frozen yogurt with fruit!

I made this here tropical smoothie bowl in partnership with ALOHA. I’m so excited to be working with them as I LOVE their green powders & superfood chocolate bars.  For this recipe I mixed frozen bananas with frozen berries, coconut cream, pineapples and fortified the smoothie with a packet of Aloha’s Daily Good Greens Powder. For toppings, I added fresh bananas, pineapple, raspberries and toasted coconut for some extra crunch. Talk about healthy!

I think it’s safe to say that I made this recipe for two and ended up eating both servings. Sorry, Cooper!  Obviously, I didn’t want the smoothie bowl goodness to end.

And we’re off!  Toppings AND Smoothie ingredients!

We’re going to blend!  My Vitamix does a bang up job with smoothie bowls since they don’t have a ton of liquid in them.

That motor is something else!

Pineapple and coconut cream go on top of the berries. The coconut cream comes from Trader Joe’s.

Alternately, you could use Whipped Coconut Cream for this recipe.

Btw- this recipe is vegan!!

We blend. Aloha, thick smoothie! See what I did there?

We take our Aloha Daily Good Greens Powder (I love that they come in pouches because I always get powder all over the place. Plus! I keep a few in my purse. They’re great on the go/while traveling. I mix them with OJ when I’m on the run).

    This is such a cool idea, no one wants to drink an entire meal! This allows you more freedom to toss in whatever your feeling like eating with your smoothie. Can’t wait to try!

    I’m a huge fan of smoothie bowls – and the possibilities are endless with them! I agree that it’s all about the toppings here.

  • Jano

    Can you make some and store it? I know that I won’t have time to do this every morning so making some ahead of time would be great.

    • Tracy

      I’d recommend putting all the ingredients in a ziplock bag and sticking it in the freezer the night before. Then blending it in the morning when you’re ready! If you put it in the already made smoothie bowl freezer, it will just harden…and if you keep it in the fridge it will just be runny and you might as well just drink a smoothie.

    Those smoothie bowls looks amazing! And I love the Aloha products…the fact that all the ingredients are real foods. I’m often asked for recommendations on protein powders and it’s not easy to find ones that are really pure. Plus, those green packets are great for travel.

    I’m really loving this concept! I think this is going to have to become part of my Summer breakfast rotation! Thanks for sharing!

    SO good!! We eat acai bowls all of the time (both out and at home,) but I haven’t really played around with making my own smoothie bowls. Great idea. :) Also, I need to try the Aloha green protein, since I do live in the Aloha state. :) xo

    I’m with you on the smoothie bowls – so much better than drinking through a straw!

  • Morgan

    This is perfect timing!! Just got a Vitamix!! Can’t wait to try!

  • tokissthecook

    I am 100% copping this recipe. Also, coconut cream–who knew? Many <3's from a fellow lover of order in the form of toppings (but basically nowhere else)

  • Mary Frances

    YUM! These look so delicious!

  • Abby

    Ooh, this looks amazing, Tracy! I love how thick it is…. and the toppings! Adore. <3

  • Amy @ Thoroughly Nourished Life

    I feel the same way about smoothies: sometimes I’m in love with them, sometimes I just want to eat my breakfast. I love thick, thick smoothies so these smoothie bowls are my dreamtime breakfast Tracy! Berries and bananas on the shopping list now!

  • Amanda

    This sounds so tasty so I clicked over to Aloha’s site. I signed up for their free trial that comes with six pouches. Looking forward to trying them all! :-)
