This tasty banana berry smoothie bowl is made with frozen bananas and strawberries, vanilla, a little maple syrup, and plant-milk or other liquid of choice. Top with berries, nuts, coconut, or granola for a customizable healthy frozen treat.
Cut bananas into uniform chunks. Cut tops off strawberries. You can leave whole unless very large. Cut large berries in half.
Put fruit in the freezer for at least six hours or overnight. If possible, put the fruit on a cookie sheet so that it doesn't touch and freeze that way. If you do not have room in your freezer, then put in a large baggie but check after a couple of hours. Shake the bag and break up the frozen fruit chunks.
Add the frozen fruit to the blender. It will measure up to the 5 cup mark. Blend on low speed for a couple of minutes or until the fruit is broken into tiny chunks.
Add the vanilla and maple syrup. Turn blender onto high and gradually add the plant milk. Blend for a couple of more minutes or until smooth. You might need your pusher to get the fruit to the bottom and fully blend.
Pour the smoothie into two bowls. Top with coconut and berries and other optional toppings of choce.
You can save for later. Just pour into a freezer-safe container and freeze. When you are ready to eat your smoothie bowl, set the container on the counter for 10-15 minutes. Or you can scoop out and serve as a fruity ice cream.
