How to Make Better Smoothie Bowls

Today I’m sharing some tips that will help you make better smoothie bowls; you know, the type you can eat with a spoon!

Tips on how to make better smoothie bowls.

Check out the video below to see how they are made:

If you don’t know what a smoothie bowl is, you are not alone. A year ago, when my smoothies were super thick, the kind that did not sip through a straw well, I either reblended the smoothie with a little more liquid or poured it into my cup and waited until the thick mixture would melt a little until my straw and my lungs could handle the sip.

Until, one day, I saw on Instagram what looked like fruit bowls but bloggers were calling it “smoothie bowls” instead. What is this thing people call smoothie bowls anyway?

Well, apparently it’s this huge trend of making smoothies extra thick and topping it with all sorts of goodies, and then you eat it with a spoon. And if you know me, you know I LOVE toppings. Toppings are my thing!

After finding out the ins and outs of smoothie bowl making with many runny failures along the way, the video you watched above are my tips to making better smoothie bowls that can be eaten with a spoon.

So what do you think? Are smoothie bowls something your family would like, or, do you enjoy making traditional smoothies? Let me know!
