Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl

For those of you that really know me, you know I am totally obsessed with smoothies.  I love so many different kinds of fruit which makes blending different fruits and juices together so much better!

So today I thought I’d do something a little different and fun by sharing with you all my strawberry banana smoothie bowl recipe!  One thing I love about smoothie bowls compared to regular smoothies is that you can add fruit toppings and oats on top of the already blended together fruits and juices.  It adds a little something extra and it’s SO GOOD and so aesthetically pleasing.  Perfect for breakfast or a snack!

While some smoothies contain a lot of dairy products, I don’t always do this with the smoothies I make because of my lactose intolerance (can only handle so much dairy).  So instead of using milk or yogurts, I substitute these with some of my favorite juices, like orange juice and lemonade.  This is just the way I like to make it though, you totally have the freedom to use different kinds of milk and yogurt instead of juices like I did.  But I also love my smoothies super fruity, I think all of it combined together is absolutely delicious.
