Satisfying, delicious and versatile, smoothie bowls are thick smoothies you can eat with a spoon. This is the ultimate customizable dish: change up the fruits to suit your own taste and use whichever toppings you prefer. Smoothie bowls are especially good for breakfast or dessert. I like to keep banana chunks in my freezer so I always have them on hand. Frozen mango and pineapple, readily available in supermarkets, are convenient and often less expensive than fresh.


  • 2 tablespoons ground chia seeds
  • 2 ripe bananas, peeled, cut into chunks and frozen
  • 1 cup/175g diced fresh or frozen mango
  • 1 cup/200g diced fresh or frozen pineapple
  • Optional toppings: goji berries, sliced banana, berries, cacao nibs, ground flaxseeds or hemp seeds


Combine the ground chia seeds and ½ cup/120ml of water in a bowl and set aside for 10 minutes to thicken.

In a blender, combine the bananas, mango and pineapple. Add the chia seed mixture and blend until smooth.

Divide the smoothie mixture between two bowls. Add any desired toppings and serve.
