How to Turn Your Smoothie into a Smoothie Bowl and Stay Cool 

Turning your smoothie into a smoothie bowl is a fantastic way to enjoy a refreshing, nutrient packed meal, especially during the hot summer months. Smoothie bowls allow for a thicker texture, making them ideal for topping with a variety of fruits, nuts, seeds, and other healthy addons. Here’s how you can easily make a smoothie bowl and keep cool: 

 

Basic Steps to Make a Smoothie Bowl 

  1. Use Less Liquid: 

    When making a smoothie bowl, use less liquid than you would for a traditional smoothie. This helps achieve a thicker consistency. Start with about half the usual amount of liquid (such as almond milk, coconut water, or juice). 

  1.   Add More Frozen Ingredients: 

    To achieve a thicker texture, use frozen fruits and vegetables. Common choices include frozen bananas, berries, mangoes, and even spinach or kale.  

  1. Include a Thickening Agent: 

    Adding ingredients like Greek yogurt (frozen yogurt works too), avocado, or a spoonful of nut butter can help thicken your smoothie.  

  1. Blend and Adjust: 

Blend your smoothie, starting on low speed and gradually increasing to high. If the consistency is too thin, add more frozen fruits or a handful of ice cubes. If it’s too thick, add a splash of liquid. 

  1. Pour and Top: 

Pour your thick smoothie into a bowl and top with your favorite ingredients. Popular toppings include fresh fruits, granola, nuts, seeds, shredded coconut, and a drizzle of honey and or nut butter.
