Watermelon Açaí Smoothie Bowl

Not only is this smoothie bowl the perfect way to celebrate summer, but it’s also the perfect way to celebrate National Watermelon Day! This smoothie is loaded with watermelon and uses the remaining watermelon as the bowl - so no watermelon goes to waste here.   

Plus, with just 5 ingredients, this smoothie bowl recipe is insanely easy to make. All you have to do is scoop out your watermelon, add the ingredients to a blender, and that’s it.  

And not only does this smoothie bowl taste delicious, but it’s also good for you. It contains antioxidants from Açaí and potassium from the banana. It’s also incredibly hydrating and the perfect way to cool down after a hot day in the sun. 

To make this watermelon smoothie bowl you’ll need the following ingredients:


Of course to make this watermelon smoothie bowl, a watermelon is key! I highly recommend using a mini seedless watermelon as the smaller size works perfect for a bowl. You can use a spoon or melon baller to scoop out the watermelon and then place the scooped-out skin in the fridge while the watermelon pieces freeze.  

Frozen Banana 

To thicken this smoothie bowl, we are using a frozen banana. Using frozen banana is key to getting the thickest, creamiest texture. For a sweeter smoothie bowl, make sure to let your banana ripen more before freezing. 

Unsweetened Coconut Milk 

A bit of liquid goes a long way in this smoothie bowl. Since watermelon is 92% water, we don’t need too much excess liquid. I recommend using canned unsweetened coconut milk for the creamiest texture, but any kind of plant-based milk will do. Start with a small amount and gradually increase, as necessary.  

SAMBAZON Unsweetened Frozen Açaí Packets 

This smoothie recipe uses about one and a half unsweetened Açaí packets to make the Açaí flavor pop. However, you can use one or two depending on preference. If you use two, you may need to add a bit of extra liquid.  


A splash of lime adds the perfect zing to this smoothie bowl. You can also garnish with lime for decoration. 

Optional Toppings

Coconut / Cashews / Additional Fruit for smoothie bowl toppings.
