One of the main reasons you would make a smoothie bowl is to take numerous photos for your various social media accounts.
I’m honestly not a fan of having a smoothie in a bowl. I find it really difficult to eat. Or is it drink? Either way, I have decided that I like to drink my smoothies from a glass.
The first thing you need to make a delicious smoothie bowl is a great smoothie recipe. One that uses frozen fruit works really well. I always have blueberries or raspberries in the freezer and they are perfect for this. Not only are they tasty fruits, but they also have an amazing colour, for those Instagram posts of course.
Bananas are another great option to make sure your smoothie is thick. If you like an extra thick smoothie bowl, use a frozen banana. Greek yogurt or ice cream are other great options. But maybe leave out the ice cream if you are aiming for a healthy smoothie.
For a green smoothie bowl add spinach, avocado or super greens powder.
Other smoothie bowl toppings you could use are peanut butter or nut butter, mini chocolate chips,
If your smoothie bowls need to be dairy free or gluten free, opt for milks like almond milk.
