Smoothie Bowl-How To

There’s a new craze in the natural world-Move over you plain ole’ smoothies in a glass!  Say hello to spooning up your smoothies in a bowl!  At first I wondered what the point was and what the difference was, but after mastering the “art” of the bowl, I’m quite enjoying this new trend!

That being said, there’s a huge learning curve on how to get your smoothie smooth, creamy and thick.  Today I’m going to help you skip the dry runs and make a mouth watering smoothie bowl on your first attempt!

Tips & Tricks

  1. Freeze your bowl first!
  2. Use ONLY frozen fruit.  A frozen banana really helps!
  3. Toppings make the bowl-Get creative with textures.  Hint: Throwing some organic cereal, graham crackers or even a cookie are great incentive to get kiddos to spoon it up!
  4. Add in tasteless nutrition like raw spinach leaves, chia seeds and ground flax seed.  This is especially helpful if you are trying to make a meal out of your bowl.
  5. Drizzle honey and a dash of cinnamon on the top-It makes your bowl simply out-of-this-world!
  6. Because smoothie bowls melt FAST, have your toppings ready to go before you’ve blended your smoothie.
  7. Add your liquid as your blending so that you only have to use what it will take to get the blender or food processor to blend.  The key is to use as little liquid as possible!
  8. If you don’t have a high powered blender like a Blend-Tec or VitaMix, use your food processor.
  9. Honestly-If you love these bowls as much as I do-Break out your indoor ice cream maker and make enough for the whole family-This will ensure a thick, creamy ice-cream like consistency!  A smoothie bowl for dessert might just get those birdies to stop chirping for candy!
