Things To Love About Smoothie Bowls
I love smoothie bowls for the obvious reasons. They are a great way to pack in a ton of fruits and veggies into one meal.
Smoothie bowls are also great because you can add on some really healthy toppings that make it a bit more filling then a regular smoothie. Healthy toppings like hemp or chia seeds, nuts and whole grain oats for example are a great way to add fiber to your diet, as well as other essential nutrients you might otherwise be missing out on. I love to add on fresh fruit as well for even more color and flavor.
I topped this smoothie with fresh blackberries, sliced green grapes, shredded toasted coconut as well as hemp and chia seeds.  It was so delicious!
You can even add on your favorite protein powder if you are looking to add more protein to your diet. That's especially helpful for those looking to gain muscle tone or for those who are vegan, and might behaving a harder time meeting their protein requirements.
How To Make A Thick and Creamy Smoothie Bowl
I've learned some tricks along the way that make the smoothie bowl experience a bit easier and more enjoyable.
Use frozen fruit but give it time to defrost slightly. 5-10 minutes is enough to make the blending process a bit easier. Fruit with less water like bananas, mango, avocado and blueberries work well to create a thicker smoothie.
Use a high power blender with a tamper and blend on low speed/power then gradually increase to a medium speed. You'll need a tamper to help move the frozen pieces around while the smoothie evolves into a thick and creamy texture. Patience is key.
Add only a splash of liquid if needed. Plant-based milks are creamy and work well for smoothie bowls.
Practice makes perfect. Different fruits and veggies yield slightly different results. Don't be afraid to play around with ingredient amounts to get the right texture so you can get that oooo-weeeee baby powered up and ready to go feeling that only green smoothies can give you!
And lately, I just can’t stop making these delicious smoothie bowls. It’s like the perfect combo. The perfect meal, really.
