  • WOW they look amazing! Thank you for always sharing great recipes that are easy to follow and delicious! You’ve inspired me to start my own channel and I would appreciate it if you guys checked it out. Have a great day everyone��

  • You need to open a smoothie bowl shop becausw im not talented enough for this but i did the smoothie part and omg its amazing please open a smoohie shop

  • Cute but why use frozen fruit instead of fresh? Is it for the consistency? I mix a very low quantity of conrn or potato starch to make the consistency slightly thicker and it works

  • As a korean girl, eating this for breakfast sounds like having icecream for breakfast, as most asian breakfasts are savoury �� But I really want to try it ♡♡♡ Yummm

  • This is not even real! HOW FREAKING delicous is this like how Can urs look like an Angel poppes on it When mine looks like a dog poop:c

  • Do you take B12 supplements? Because when I began being vegan, my hair fell heavily, how can I save my hair and stay vegan? Thank you:)

  • Just for a heads up to everyone that doesn’t get thick smoothie bowls with their blender I find I get a thicker bowl when I use my food processor rather than my blender but I have to add in the fruit gradually so thats the only down side

  • Hey! How do you get the smoothies to blend so well? I’ve tried so many times and I can’t get it to work. They are just so perfect!

  • THANK YOU FOR ALL THE LOVE ON THIS VIDEO! Make sure to hit subscribe because we can definitely do MORE of these recipe videos!

    Ash and Tay

  • Passe faire un tour sur mon blog, j’ai rediger une succulente recette du bowl healthy


  • Great video, its great to see that you can make many smoothy bowls. Will give them a go.
    You can freeze your smoothy and have it the next day, with all these flavours you have a few to choose from. Take a look at my vid on how i make mine
    Watch “Acai bowl straight from the freezer” on YouTube

  • Hi Sadia, I am just in Love with your channel. You were the reason, my plant-based diet got successful.
    I add some complete powder in my shakes. It’s with oat, quinoa, rice and beetroot as well as acerola. It helps to burn fat. What do you think about it?

  • Ur blender is so satisfying matching with the music, my blender is like “REEEEEEEEEEELDJSKSIWISJSKLSLLLLLLSPSP” and it SPLASHES EVERYWHERE!

  • Thank you I know how to do it that’s how I make it! I have a ninja blender and I have lots of frozen fruits and my smoothie bowls are real thick!

  • hey sadia. Always love your youtube channel and had been a fan since watching it for the first time. Been wondering, since in smoothies we use raw fruits or vegies, how do you wash them, to avoid food borne germs or illness?

  • Idk why but there is something about her that makes you like and trust her! I just saw one of her videos earlier today and ive been binge watching since!

  • wish i could make a thick smoothie in a regular single serve blender cup… when i blend it blends the bottom bit then it sticks to the sides and doesn’t even blend all of my berries… so i have to add milk or yogurt and its just a runny smoothie �� (don’t get me wrong its still good just not as thick as i want it):(

  • These aren’t THICK at all. Mine are hundred times thicker and I’m using regular blender (I have a tough time making it ��) But really, this is smoothie, not a smoothie bowl

  • ATTENTION!⚠️⚠️ I know that a lot of people want a Vitamix blender, but can’t afford it full price. I got mine at Costco for a fraction of the price! I suggest watching their sales, may pop up again!!!! Hope this helped ��⚠️⚠️

  • I don’t generally drink plant milks and if I do I prefer to make my own. I prefer to get my calcium from plant sources like watercress. I also believe chia seeds have a source of calcium.

  • Hi Sadia, have you added Tuscan Kale to your smoothies? I have never tried it, but someone gave it to me. I am rather anxious to try it.

  • i only have chocolate protein powder can you make some recipes that i can make with it? or recommend some you’ve already put out? thanks:) also i’m here from tiktok:)

  • For the mango smoothie bowl could you add just 2 or 3 mangos? And for the strawberry smoothie bowl could you just add one banana since it says it makes 2-3 servings

  • Do the fruits have to be frozen? Or can they be normal and still be smooth and have the same consistency? I don’t have frozen version, but have normal fruits

  • Hello Sadia I’m a student in India and we rarely find berries in store so..pls try Ann make a video of smoothies using minimum of ingredients..pls..love from india..��✨

  • How much chia seeds to add? Is it like a pinch or spoonfuls of it? I never know how much to add… or is it more just for decoration? Thanks

  • Hi its caylie from Tik Tok @caylie44 I love making smothies and I would love to try to make a smoothee bowl with the coconut bowls

  • Who else loves it when she scoops the smoothie and does like a swirly design? ITS SO SATISFYING! ALSO I love the colour of the island bowl smoothie

  • thick smoothie bowl tips:

    1. use frozen fruit/veggies
    2. start with only a little liquid
    3. be patient
    4. play with colors
    5. make sure they’re balanced
    you’re welcome ❤️

  • So I tried making the gingerbread one and bc my mom was very skeptical of the blender breaking, I ended up with a soupy smoothie bowl topped with blueberries. The blueberries sank tk the bottom btw.

  • just finished making this and my whole entire family tried and and was in LOVE!!!! (i made the island bowl) i didnt have any frozen mango but instead i put patiaya cubes:) you have to move fast or it will melt! Thank you Twin Coast!!!

  • Me: I should get that
    money: I’m not gonna let u get the chance
    : me ohh ughh I guess I have to wait till Black Friday in 6 months ����

  • Will it do the same if you have the small ninja (btw thank you for all the healthy videos I’m more confident in my eating habits and my body because of your videos so I want to thank you)

  • Wow! Congratulations PUL! 1M lovely subscribers. I love all your videos sadia,keep it coming! You’re really doing a great job! ����

  • Just an extra tip: If you want a thicker smoothie bowl freeze all the fruits/vegetables, and add less liquid. Another tip if you don’t have an expensive blender, add the frozen fruits and vegetables little by little.

  • These smoothie bowl recipes are really great. I love these smoothie bowl recipes. Thanks for sharing these recipes with all of US. Even i have an article on how to make smoothie bowl as well. Grab a look at the recipe:

  • yeah no it doesnt work with a cheap blender ��my SMOOTHIE BLENDER (it’s supposed to make smoothies) couldn’t make something so thick and beautiful.

    Edit: And this is the definition of expensive veganism. Not saying it’s bad, just not suitable for lots of regular people that don’t have a high income but still wants to help the environment and stuff… Please do a video without the expensive items like powders and Vitamix blenders… thank you…

  • Hi Sadia!
    I am in love with your channel, congratulations!
    I noticed you use tofu and soy milk in your receipts, one day in the past I heard that soy is not good for you I am confusing every time I see vegans consuming it freely. I am afraid of including it in my meals, or even buying products that has soy in the ingredients. Could you talk about it and explain the soy myth? Thank you!

  • I don’t eat smoothie bowls but after every smoothie bowl video I am very excited to do this���� But I like to eat the fruits as pieces and not as purree������

  • Mic the Vegan said on his channel that calcium obtained through fortified non-dairy milks is not healthy and should be avoided. Thoughts on this?

  • Thanks Sadia for the tips with the smoothies, may I ask which grain do you suggest for a breakfast smoothie? I suaully use raw Oats, I feel I need some form on carbohydrate in it. Your tips are useful, the store bought ones are full of sugar and artificial yogurt.

  • When you realise shop bought ice cream is not only a rip off but worse than just doing stuff yourself and it’s. Custom to preference so it’s like even better healthier gunna benefit you and taste mad good

  • I would never want to become vegan because i just love the taste of dairy products but I still like watching your videos and already made few smoothies following your recipes using almond milk. I wish I could show you, as they look exactly like the one you have made and they are very healthy and delicious.

  • 3:43 girl how are u ok with drinking that bright berry smoothie when covered in pristine white sheets omg that gave me a near heart attack because if it were me those sheets would be berry color��

  • Your cheerful, positive smile and presenting style,gave me a dream to have a healthy life style, now I’m working on it,thank u is not enough for ur great effort on this videos,so I wish the happiest life for you with alots of love.

  • Hi! I would really like to try the crunchy triple chocolate but I have a serious allergy to cashews is there any alternatives? Thanks for the awesome video!

  • Hi, can anyone help? I do a successful and tasty low carb diet. I want to make cornbread for Thanksgiving, but I do not want to use high carb corn products. Any idea as to what to substitute for corn and still have it taste like cornbread? Any suggestion for a cornbread sub?

  • OMG Sadia. Every time I watch your videos I would like to be a vegan person 😉 but it’s just that I have twin boys that sometimes I don’t have time to do everything from scratch. I do some changes at a time, like drink more smoothies like those. I love your channel. Thanks for doing this:) Cheers!

  • Yes…since i do a low carb diet spinach and hemphearts are my go to with a few berries…I also use soy milk for its estrogen and tofu for creaminess…I also add a little bit of an infused tea when I need to destress

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you! When I fall off the healthy wagon your videos always give me the motivation to get back on and your delicious, nutritious sweet treats are great for my little boy who needs a very high fibre diet. Bless you x

  • It’s NOT healthy if you use SOYMILK because SOYMILK is GMO & disrupts HORMONES within the body. CHANGE OUT your milk & then you will have a HEALTHY smoothie. I still LIKED & value your video. ��

  • I know this is kind of a late comment on your video. I recently subscribed and I’m loving all your videos.
    Love your enthusiasm.
    Keep it up!:) thank you.

  • I love the video, but how can you say “Healthy” using 3 bananas that equals 6 portions of high glycemic index fruit? If a person with diabetes watches this video, they might think it is correct when it is not.

  • Just found Pick Up Limes and subscribed this weekend. Geeking out now, watching all of the videos chronologically. Been vegan since 9/10/11, but was still eating salmon once in a while and just stopped completely last week. That was my last vestige of non-vegan eating that I found so hard to let go. I’m so glad she mentioned omegas. Anyway, I am also gluten-free since September 2018, and so far I’m seeing no gluten here. I assume there will be in future videos, but I can always modify. So happy I found this channel!

  • these are a bit too runny for a smoothie bowl. I would drink these instead. I use more frozen ingredients and a lot less liquid for mine.
    Otherwise good recipes. I will edit them to fit my preferences.

  • Great ideas and it all looks so beautiful! �� Raw/dry omega-3-rich chia seeds absorb water from the body so I only eat them soaked so they sprout and I stay hydrated. That way it also releases the enzyme inhibitors and makes them easier to digest. Further It also helps to increase the amount of nutrients the body is able to absorb. It’s worth trying to soak before adding to a smoothie (chia 1: 10 water for 30 to 90 min.). Ground/pulverized they are great too for many purposes.

  • Yes weird question, is it possible to make these without a blender? I understand it will take longer, but is it possible? Like we don’t have a blender ( yet, I’m still convincing my parents) but is it possible?

  • There is actually no natural soy anywhere in the US. Even the “organic” soy milk or sauce is GMO. Its better to refer to a almond or oat milk.

  • Hi Alexandra! I just wanted to ask you if adding Spirulina powder to the recipe is necessary or not? As here where I live, its very hard to find it.
    Your recipes are lovely and I want to try them out, so could you please reply asap.

  • Sadia, I have a question for you. But first let me explain myself first. My sister is currently reading a book written by a nutritionist and this particular book recommends lots of protein in the form of animal products and it says to avoid most starchy foods including fruits. I feel very frustrated because she believes it since it is a register dietitian. Could you help me explain to her why this is not a healthy route for weight loss or over all health? I do not understand how dietitians can have such controversial ideas. Shouldn’t we be all in the same page?

  • I made the blueberry smoothe bowl and ut looked the exact same except i’m on a diet so I couldn’t add the chocolates in but, i replaced it with strawberries and it tasted so good. Except i did have to add milk to it and i think you might of added milk you yours because it turned out the same, thank you for the heavenly smoothie!

  • Hi do you cook the red vegetable I forgot the name, the red little ball, do you cook it before you put in the smoothie or add it raw?

  • Cutting calories through dietary changes seems to promote weight loss more effectively than does exercise and physical activity. The key to weight loss is to consume fewer calories than you burn.

  • Love making smoothie bolls and I use lactose free cottage cheese because it contains more protion and I am not vegan so I eat/drink still cow mooi but when that is up I have unsweeted Sojamilk in my Refrigerator

  • I can change almond milk with fresh milk or UHT milk? I don’t want to diet, just need a healthy food.. It’s measurement for almond milk and fresh milk are same or different?

  • This video could have been about a second long… just… FIBRE! Jokes aside another enjoyable and informative video and as others have mentioned you are a joy to listen to.

  • Can you please help us with the amount of smoothie bowls? Because I always fail on that part, I try to make only one portion and at the end it results like two or three portions ��

  • For all of you saying iT dOeSnT wOrK!! use a:
    High quality blender (vitamix/nutribullet/magicbullet/ninja) or a food processor.
    Frozen fruit
    That’s all I got:) respond with other tips if you have any!

  • Thank you for sharing. I like using my homemade quinoa milk in my smoothies. I use a recipe on you tube for rice milk but I use quinoa.

  • For all who don’t like or are allergic to bananas. Check out my video “How to Make Nice Cream Without Bananas (Full Tutorial)” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0-O4PwJySU You’re welcome ��

  • yours were actually not smoothie bowls. Smoothie bowls don’t have milk or any extras, only frozen fruit but a bit of water if your blender can’t handle it. those were really runny but really good video:)

  • Amazing recipes and so yummy������������������������������������❤������❣����������������������❤��������������������������������������❤��������������

  • Can you make a Smoothie bowl like this with a Ninja regular blender the think blender not the small blender I don’t have your blender can I still make a smoothie bowl using my blender I don’t think I can though

  • Almost everybody in the live chat was like oh my gosh hurry up how long is this video I just need to know how long is this video this is taking forever when it’s been 36 seconds and the whole video is only three minutes��

  • hey! thank you so much for these amazing recipes, the bowls seem both delicious and aesthetically pleasing lol. But just wondering what blender do you use? I tried checking the description but it wasn’t listed. Hope you see this♥

  • So thoughtful �� I love this concept, straight recipes, super cute, healthy, not too slow not too quick. Beautiful, I’ll definitely try them ☺️

  • I have some fruits to make these bowls but the thing is they’re not frozen. And I am wayyy too impatient to wait for them to freeze up.

  • If you want more healty you should replace the milk chocolat by the dark chocolat over 70% of cacao:)
    I will try all of this recipes!

  • My idea is take some frozen bananas and fresh bananas and some milk, cocoa powder and lastly some chocolate syrup. You can add strawberries if you want to!

  • I love how you guys put exact measurements! most videos like these just say “a handful of pineapple, some strawberries and a splash of milk” which is not helpful at all ♥️
