Smoothie Bowl

Sharing is caring!

This smoothie bowl is colorful, thick and loaded with a range of fruit and grain toppings. If a regular smoothie isn’t filling enough for you in the morning or you prefer to have something to chew on, a smoothie bowl with your favorite toppings is a great choice for you. You can eat it with a spoon like you would a bowl of cereal, instead of sipping on it.

What is a Smoothie Bowl?

A smoothie bowl is simply a smoothie eaten out of a bowl instead of a glass. It is then topped with fruit, nuts, spices and/or grains. It is usually thicker than a regular smoothie, such as my peach smoothie, so that you can eat it with a spoon. It’s easy to make, so no need to be intimidated.

Recipe FAQs

How do you make a smoothie bowl thick?

Frozen fruit is a must for a thick smoothie. Also, the less liquid you add to the smoothie, the thicker it will be. That is why I suggest adding only a splash of milk because that will help it to blend better but remain thick.

You will likely need to stop the blender a few times to scrape down the sides of the blender jar and continue until smooth.

What is the difference between a smoothie and a smoothie bowl?

A smoothie is usually served in a glass and is thin enough to sip on whereas a smoothie bowl is served in a bowl and is thick enough to eat with a spoon. Smoothie bowls also contain a number of toppings consisting of chunks of fruit, berries, grains and/or seeds.
