If you’ve spent any time with me on social media, you might know that I love smoothie bowls. 😋
Many of you have asked me “What is a smoothie bowl?” And “How do you make them?!” I wrote another article here. A smoothie bowl is blended frozen fruit that you put in a bowl and top with fresh fruit, granola, nuts and anything else that suits you.
I made one today and documented the process. I love making these as a way to be creative and inspire myself to eat something delicious and healthy. I hope you’ll see how easy and fun they are so that you can start making your own!
I don’t have a “go to” recipe, because I always use whatever fruit is already in my kitchen when crave a bowl; however, I do almost always use pre-cut frozen bananas as my base.
I cut and freeze them myself. Make sure to remove the peel before you freeze. I learned the hard way that its hard to get it off after freezing.
I put any other fresh or frozen fruits in my food processor (a blender works too, I just don’t have one) with the banana and blend. The trick to smoothie bowls is getting the mixture thicker than a typical smoothie, so I add little to no liquid. If it won’t blend after a few minutes add 2 tbs of water or almond milk at a time, until you get this thick creamy texture.
Now scoop it into a bowl and choose your toppings.
I like adding other colorful fruits and shredded coconut to make it pretty, as well as nuts and granola for crunch.
Top it and enjoy!
