This watermelon smoothie bowl contains a variety of nutritious fruits and is prepared to a thickness that requires a spoon. Savor a delightful bowl filled with your preferred summer fruits as a delightful method to stay cool and kickstart your day.
Nothing is better than fresh summer fruits and serving it up this way is not only fun but easy. My kids can be quite picky about what fruits they eat raw but put them in a smoothie and watch them disappear! Even berries they claim to dislike are enjoyed every sip of the way.
If desired, you can serve up your watermelon breakfast smoothie in a glass with a straw, but it's thick enough that you may need a spoon, so serving it up in a bowl is a great idea.
🍯 Why This Recipe Works
- It's a nutritious option. Loaded with numerous berries and fruits, this watermelon bowl is an ideal summertime indulgence, naturally sweet to the point of resembling a dessert. However, let's not overlook the abundance of valuable nutrients within this purple smoothie.
- It's fun. So many fruits have different colors, and when blended together, we get a unique and fun bowl of different shades. Not only that but eating a smoothie with a spoon? That's almost like eating ice cream- of course, the kids will love it!
- It's quick to make. Just like any other smoothie recipe out there, you'll just need a quick spin in the blender to get this recipe ready to serve.
Frozen watermelon- You can buy pre-frozen watermelon from the grocery store or freeze your leftover watermelon on a baking sheet overnight.
Blueberries- You can use fresh or frozen. Add more or less depending on how much blue color you want to give your smoothie.
Vanilla Frozen Yogurt- I love to use frozen yogurt instead of fresh because it helps to make smoothies even thicker and it's easier to keep on hand. You can use regular yogurt or even Greek yogurt if you want to.

🍴 Recipe Tips
Making this berry watermelon smoothie is super easy (and fun) all you need is a blender.
You can adjust the overall thickness of the smoothie by using frozen fruits instead of fresh. You can also add in more frozen yogurt for a creamier and thicker texture as well.
We like our watermelon smoothie bowl recipe to be a mash-up of frozen watermelon with whatever berries we have in the fridge.
Using frozen yogurt helps to keep it nice and thick while keeping it pretty healthy compared to ice creams. It also helps to keep the smoothie colder, but if you happen to have Greek yogurt on hand, adding it in instead is totally fine.
Any of your favorite berries and fruits can easily work well with the watermelon. Blueberries, apples, kiwi, strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, coconut, and bananas are all fabulous fruit ideas. Other ideas can include spinach, acai berries, chia seeds, nuts, and mint leaves. The frozen watermelon flavor is subtle and goes well with practically anything.
Watermelon is a refreshing and delicious fruit that adds great flavor and natural sweetness to this smoothie, making it a delightful and guilt-free choice for a nutritious treat.
If you don't have yogurt or frozen yogurt or would like to choose not to use them simply add in more frozen bananas. This will help to keep the drink sweet and thick when blended.
