Delicious, healthy and fresh flavors are the hallmarks of a good smoothie bowl. This recipe for a Grapefruit Smoothie Bowl checks all the boxes.
This fruit-filled delight can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or a snack. The smoothie base is made from grapefruit juice, honey, banana and frozen strawberries. That mixture on its own right is delicious if you just want to pour it into a tall glass and slurp away. But, if you want to go full-on smoothie bowl, top it with fresh strawberries, grapefruit, banana slices and coconut.
The only kitchen tools you’ll need for this easy mashup is a Trimmer or 4" Gourmet Paring Knife to slice the strawberries and bananas, and section the grapefruit. For a quick tutorial on how to section grapefruit, check out our handy infographic.
To make it a bit easier, whip up the fruit smoothie base the night before and then toss the fruit on top in the morning to complete the recipe. And, honestly, you can choose whatever fruit you want to go on top. Also consider adding some granola, nuts or raisins.
Another trick is to pop the smoothie part of the recipe into the freezer for a few minutes before adding the toppings. After adding the toppings, it will be like eating a sundae.
