How to Make a Smoothie Bowl
Smoothie bowls are becoming a very popular breakfast idea. Filled with healthy ingredients, a smoothie bowl can be a great meal choice for someone who is looking for a lighter meal idea for a busy day. I love that you get all of the same nutrients and delicious flavors of a smoothie, but I can also add texture with whole berries, coconut, or even chopped nuts.
Brooke’s Tip: This recipe makes two servings. If you’re saving the second portion for the next morning, re-blend the smoothie mixture with one cup of ice to thicken it again.
How do you make this 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 by using frozen fruit. It adds sweetness to the smoothie bowl recipe while keeping the consistency thick.
If your smoothie bowl is a bit too thin, you can always mix in some extra yogurt before serving, or toss in a few pieces of fruit to the blender.
What do you put on top of a Smoothie Bowl?
While you can put anything on top of this recipe, here are a few things that I suggest. When making this, I like to add a whole banana cut into slices, chia seeds, almond slivers and an assortment of fruits that you enjoy.
I also like to add 1 scoop of my favorite brand of protein powder She Activates.
Variations to this Recipe
The key to any recipe is being able to change the tastes to fit your needs or even just because you don’t have an ingredient on hand. When changing this smoothie bowl recipe consider:
- Different Fruit. While this is a great fruit combination, you can change the fruit to whatever fruit you like or have on hand.
- Different toppings. These are my favorite toppings for a smoothie bowl, but you can change up and add whatever toppings you enjoy most.
- Vanilla Milk. When creating this smoothie bowl recipe, try changing the milk to vanilla-flavored milk. It will add more flavor to your smoothie bowl.
