What is a Smoothie Bowl?
In short, a smoothie bowl is exactly what it sounds like – a smoothie in a bowl. The smoothie was made with a slightly thicker consistency, making it easier to add toppings and scoop! So why a smoothie bowl recipe instead of making a regular smoothie? If you like eating your breakfast instead of drinking it then this is definitely for you. The second reason you might prefer a smoothie bowl to a regular smoothie is that you can add toppings! While the word “healthy” is relative and unique to each person, smoothie bowls are certainly full of nutritious vitamins, healthy carbs, and may contain added protein. Toppings in smoothie bowl recipes can also add extra nutritional value!
For the most part, the ingredients in almost all smoothie bowl recipes boil down to 3 things: frozen fruit, milk (your choice), and banana (for thickening). Adding protein powder to your healthy smoothie bowl recipe is always a good idea! Vanilla or unflavored protein powder is best used for most recipes. Another option is to use collagen powder for extra nutrition! Either way, remember to adjust the thickness of your healthy smoothie recipe by adding more milk (2 tbsp at a time) if using protein powder. Here’s an overview of how to whip up a smoothie bowl in 10 minutes or less:
- Mix frozen fruit and milk of your choice.
- Add a banana and blend until smooth.
- Pour into a bowl.
- Add toppings and enjoy!
There are also 5 easy ways to thicken a smoothie:
- Add more banana.
- Stir in more frozen fruit.
- Use less milk.
- Add the protein powder.
- Use Greek yogurt instead of milk.
