Today I’m sharing some tips that will help you make better smoothie bowls; you know, the type you can eat with a spoon!
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!
A healthy breakfast shake that tastes like dessert! This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Shake is one your kids will ask for every day.
I’m a huge fan of breakfasts that taste like dessert. Who isn’t?! Anything from decadent oatmeal to scones to chocolate pancakes is a great treat in the morning to get our day started on a good note. I know that when I serve up something sweet (but still nutritious), the whole family will love it.
This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Shake is a new addition to our sweet breakfast line-up, but it’s already a favorite! I’m a huge fan of smoothies since they’re quick to make and easy to take with us on-the-go. You could double or triple this recipe to feed the whole family one morning!
The combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and banana is heavenly here, and oatmeal adds extra nutrition. Your kids will never know they’re slurping down something that’s actually good for them!
Yes, your breakfast can taste like dessert! This Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie Bowl from 200 Best Smoothie Bowl Recipes is creamy, sweet, and a healthier way to indulge your sweet tooth.
I’m so excited to share this smoothie bowl recipe with you for a couple reasons! First, you know how much I love chocolate, especially paired with peanut butter. Is there a combination more delicious? I think not! My kids can never say no – and neither can I. ;)
Second, this recipe is from my friend Alison Lewis’ book 200 Best Smoothie Bowl Recipes. Yes, 200 recipes! Smoothies are a great way to pack in lots of fruits and veggies in your family’s diet, and smoothie bowls make them even more fun. They’re super creamy, and you can top them with all your favorite toppings. A great interactive meal for kids!
The big difference between a normal smoothie and a smoothie bowl is the texture. You want your smoothie bowl to be super thick – almost like soft-serve ice cream! Between the thick texture and the chocolate-peanut buttery deliciousness, this peanut butter cup smoothie bowl will have you thinking you’re enjoy dessert for breakfast.
200 Best Smoothie Bowl Recipeshas every smoothie recipe you can think of, from kid-friendly recipes, green creations, dessert bowls, and even coffee and tea bowls for those of us that need our caffeine. Some of the recipes include Upside Down Apple Pie Smoothie Bowl, Green Coconut Smoothie Bowl, and Peach Paradise Smoothie Bowl. Can you say YUM?!
Smoothie bowls couldn’t be simpler to make. All you have to do is throw your ingredients in a blender, blend, and pour into bowl. You could even prep some DIY smoothie freezer packs ahead of time! Of course, I’d argue that the best part of a smoothie bowl is the toppings. The possibilities are endless! For this peanut butter cup smoothie bowl, we love banana, chocolate chips, chia seeds, and a touch of extra cocoa powder. I can never say no to more chocolate!
Full of juicy berries, this Triple Berry Smoothie is the perfect nutritious breakfast to start you and your kids’ day! It’s fruity, creamy, and packed with nutrition.
One of my favorite things about summer is all the fresh berries available. Especially here in Louisiana, where locally grown strawberries are ruby red and juicier than any fruit you’ll ever try. It makes me even more thankful to live in a place with such tasty food!
Since summer is basically just a time for me to figure out how to eat the most amount of berries I possibly can, I have to get creative with recipes. My favorite? Smoothies! I love freezing fresh berries and throwing them in the blender for creamy, refreshing smoothies.
This Triple Berry Smoothie is one of our favorites right now! Berries are a great source of antioxidants, so we have three types of berries in here for the nutrition punch. And the tastiness. :) Greek yogurt adds protein and creaminess, and you can even add a handful of spinach for extra nutrients, just like my pineapple spinach smoothie.
You and your kids will love this refreshing Triple Berry Smoothie for breakfast or a snack on warm summer days!
