This Strawberry Lime Coconut Smoothie Bowl is made with strawberries, bananas and coconut flakes for one of the easiest, breakfasts ever to make! It’s bursting with spring flavours and so good for you!
Last week I was asked what my favourite meal to make was. It didn’t take me long to realise, well, breakfast. Yes we all know it’s the “most important meal of the day” BUT it’s also one of the few meals that can be sweet AND/OR savoury (hello brunch) so you can pretty much make whatever you feel like for breakfast. Personally, I love a sweet breakfast, and this strawberry smoothie bowl definitely falls in my top 10 favourite types of breakfasts. Piling LOTS of yummy toppings on TOP of a delicious essential strawberry daiquiri?? YES. Please.
After making my Banana Berry Beet Smoothie Bowl, I realised I had created my perfect base smoothie bowl recipe. Thick because of the bananas, nutritious because of the flax seeds/chia seeds, dynamic in flavour because of the lime, and filling because of the protein powder. All that was needed was to switch up the the ingredients be it spinach, beets/raspberries OR in this case my current favourite, strawberries. Can I just say: the strawberries are winning y’all.
Not that long ago, I declared on my blog that favourite ingredients were strawberries and tomatoes – although not necessarily together, unless of course we are talking roasted strawberry bbq sauce smothered on roasted tomatoes. Then YES, together. Since then I’ve branched out to find so many new ingredients that I’ve loved but strawberries still have a specific place in my heart and remain my favourite fruit. So, I bought the biggest bag of frozen strawberries I have ever bought to satisfy this love. While fresh strawberries are amazing, I would have to freeze them anyway to ensure a thick smoothie, so it works out for sure.
The strawberries were a no brainer. Delicious, sweet and tart all at once, they create a beautiful balance in this smoothie bowl. I’ve been making this over and over since first sharing it on Instagram, and would definitely put it on my top list for breakfasts that are filling (SO important), great for you nutrition wise and also so, SO delicious. Need some more convincing? The coconut and lime basically makes it a really big healthy alcohol-free strawberry daiquiri that you would hope to drink on the beach. Count me in please!
