Everything You Need to Know About Smoothie Bowls

Six months ago I stumbled upon smoothie bowls and was instantly intrigued, especially since I hadn’t ever thought of eating a smoothie with a spoon before. The first time I tried a smoothie bowl I was instantly hooked, call me a smoothie bowl junkie.

What is a Smoothie Bowl?

A smoothie bowl starts with a thick blend of whole foods, such as frozen fruits, veggies and other healthful mix-ins (e.g. avocado, oats or yogurt).

Compared to the smoothies you’re used to sipping with a straw, the base of a smoothie bowl has a slightly thicker, almost ice-cream like consistency.

How do you make a Smoothie Bowl?

There are quite a few different ways to make a smoothie bowl. The only appliance you’ll need is a blender to make them.

Simply add your frozen fruit to a blender and blend on low until it looks like Dip ‘n’ Dots. Then add a little (not too much!) non-dairy milk of choice – I like almond – you can even add protein powder if you’d like.

Blend some more on low, scraping down the sides until you have SOFT SERVE! Yes, a smoothie bowl is glorified soft serve and it’s so dang delicious. Hence the reason I can’t stop.

Once your smoothie base is in your bowl, now comes the fun part, toppings! You can add so many different ones such as coconut, granola, chia seeds, etc.

    I love smoothie bowls as well. I love creating one with an açaí base and adding strawberries and shredded coconut to the top. My kids actually love them too.
