Smoothie Bowls. We’ve seen them all over Tik Tok and Instagram, but what is it that makes them so popular? What makes them stand out to any regular smoothie?
If you’ve ever seen smoothie bowls on your timeline, I’m sure the first thing you notice are the vibrant colours. Pink, yellow, purple, orange, blue, you name the colour and it can be made into a smoothie bowl. You can create pretty much any smoothie that your taste buds desire. Chocolate and banana maybe add some oranges or peanut butter. Mango, strawberries and banana, an ultimate berry one, the list can go on. Adding the toppings can be a pretty fun and satisfying element as well. Typical toppings can be chia seeds, coconut flakes, almond flakes, honey, fresh fruit and even chocolate chips. Smoothie bowls are one of those foods that are so good that it seems wrong. You think your indulging something you’ll regret later, but it’s one of the healthiest snacks you could have. It’s a win win!
Smoothie bowls are perfect for breakfast or any snack during the day. The secret to making the perfect smoothie bowl is using frozen fruits and blending on a low speed. This will help make that thick consistency rather than a runny liquid. Once you get that perfect texture, spoon it into a bowl and smooth out the top. Place your toppings in any pretty pattern you wish and viola, you have your Smoothie bowl.
