This Blueberry Banana Smoothie Bowl is so decadent and almost dessert-like! But, it is also healthy, quick, and easy. But before we get into the recipe here’s a how-to on smoothie bowls so you can decorate a bowl like the healthy life goddess you are!
Important smoothie bowl 101:
🍒 WHAT MAKES THE SMOOTHIE BOWL THICK?
Frozen fruit! Since the smoothie bowl is almost ice cream like, pay attention to the liquid content. Although almost any fruit will work, bananas really help give smoothie bowls that ice cream consistency. If you’re on Pinterest, I’m sure you have seen those “nice cream” recipes made with frozen bananas …. smoothie bowls along the same concept. To make the smoothie bowl thick, more like soft-serve ice cream consistency and easier to eat with a spoon, be sure to freeze the yogurt, as well.
🍇 WHAT IF I PREFER A LESS THICK SMOOTHIE BOWL?
Small amounts of water, milk, or fruit juice may be added to thin out the smoothie bowl.
🍎 WHAT IF I PREFER A THICKER SMOOTHIE BOWL?
You can add oatmeal, chia seeds, yogurt, silken tofu, or avocado! Oatmeal is my favorite smoothie thickener – and it’s best to grind it to a flour like texture BEFORE adding any other ingredients.
🍓 HOW LONG CAN I REFRIGERATE A SMOOTHIE BOWL?
Fresh is best. And really, for how fast and easy it is to put together, you really should try to go that route. However, if you need to make it ahead, it is best to use the smoothie within 24 hours. It should be noted, as the fruit thaws, the smoothie will be less thick. Using some of the thickeners mentioned above are a good way to help keep it thick.
Now finally......the recipe
