How do you make a smoothie bowl thicker?
The key to a great smoothie bowl is to make it thick. The best way to create a thick smoothie bowl is to start with less liquid than you would when making a drinkable smoothie. The other way to make a smoothie bowl thick is using frozen fruit. It adds sweetness to the smoothie bowl recipe while keeping the consistency thick.
What do you put on top of a Smoothie Bowl?
While you can put anything on top of your smoothie bowl, there are a few things that I suggest. When making this smoothie bowl recipe, I like to add a whole banana cut into slices, chia seeds, almond slivers and an assortment of fruits that you enjoy.
