Amazing Smoothie Bowl

A Smoothie Bowl is perfect when you want all the benefits of a smoothie, but want to eat it with a spoon! Having your smoothie in a bowl makes it feel more like ice cream, but it’s not!

The perfect smoothie bowl is just a blend away and any smoothie can serve as your base. Try Pina Colada, Peanut Butter and Acai Bowl smoothie.

The Perfect Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are a fun way to have your smoothie and eat it too. When I want my smoothie to feel more like a meal than a snack, I throw it in a bowl. Top it with a variety of toppings and all of a sudden my mind and stomach think I’m having ice cream for breakfast instead of a quick shake. It is a funny thing how I can be fuller longer just by tricking my brain and eating it in a bowl. The toppings, of course, help give it texture and flavor which is pure delight.

Smoothie bowls are great for a quick breakfast, a mid-day snack, or even an after-workout meal. With summer coming this makes is a great way to keep your health goals but have a cold bowl of deliciousness. When I get an ice cream craving or when my kids want something sweet and cold, I whip up one of these special smoothie bowls and all are satisfied. If you have not tried one yet, the time is now!

Ingredients For Your Smoothie Bowl

With just a few ingredients, you can have this whipped up in no time, which makes it perfect for when you are in a hurry.

  • Frozen strawberries: Using frozen preserves their nutrition and makes for a sweet smooth consistency.
  • Frozen bananas: Peel and freeze overripe bananas to use for times such as this.
  • Honey: Sweet and golden, honey is the perfect partner for your fruit.
  • Greek yogurt: You can use nonfat or full-fat Greek yogurt, both work beautifully.
  • Milk or almond milk: Add more or less milk depending on the consistency you are trying to achieve.

How to Make An Easy Smoothie Bowl

Ready to eat in less than 5 minutes, I call this a winning meal. Fast, refreshing and super good for you. Oh, and did I mention it’s luscious!?

  1. Blend: In a blender add the frozen strawberries, bananas, honey, yogurt, and milk. Add more milk if needed but you want the consistency to be thicker.
  2. Top It: Top with desired toppings.

Tips For The Best Smoothie Bowl

Keeping it real. Keep it simple. Keep it awesome!

  • Healthy: To keep the smoothie healthy you want to avoid adding a lot of extra sugars, ice cream, or frozen yogurt. Keep to frozen fruit, Greek yogurt, and natural sweeteners.
  • Make it Thick: Smoothie bowls should be thick and creamy. You should need a spoon to get it out of the blender. To get optimal thickness mix the berries first, just till they are small pebble-like pieces. Then add in your yogurt and honey and blend till just incorporated. Last pour in your liquid, but only half at a time. Blend and add milk till you reach the right consistency.
  • Boost: Give your smoothie a nutritional boost by adding in protein powder, superfood powders, spinach, or nut butter.
