Cherry-Avocado Smoothie Bowl

This post is short and definitely sweet.  I’m loving this smoothie bowl because it’s thick and creamy- perfect for a post-workout snack or even a filling breakfast.

Now I’m wondering, why have I not added avocado to my smoothies before?  Silly question since there are hundreds (no, thousands I’m sure) of recipes out there using them.  Duh.  It lends creaminess with all the good fats which result in a perfectly scoopable smoothie bowl.  Almost like ice cream.  With toppings, we’ll just consider this a superfood sundae!

I made a bowl for myself and kept a little for my son, who loved it! I think we’ll be making this throughout the summer.  To keep vegan, use plant-based milk and skip the bee pollen topping.

  • 1 cup milk (plant-based or cow’s milk)
  • 1 cup frozen sweet cherries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1 tbs vanilla hemp protein powder
  • toppings: fresh fruit, freeze-dried fruit, cocoa nibs, bee pollen, chia or hemp seeds…anything really!

Place all ingredients into a high-powered blender, such as a Vitamix, and blend.  Serve in a bowl with any desired toppings.
