How To Make The Perfect Smoothie Bowl
Here at Purely Elizabeth, smoothie bowls are one of our go-to breakfasts. They are thicker versions of smoothies you can enjoy by the spoonful & top with nourishing ingredients like fruit & granola. If you’ve never made one or haven’t perfected the recipe yet, we’ve got you!
Follow these simple steps below to make the perfect smoothie bowl:
1. Use Frozen Fruit
Using frozen fruit helps to give the smoothie a super thick consistency that is easy to eat by the spoonful. Plus, frozen fruit is just as nutritious as fresh and lasts much longer. Our favorite base is frozen bananas & berries. We recommend:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup frozen berries
2. Add your Favorite Milk
Unsweetened almond milk is a great option but other milks like oat or coconut work well too! The key is not adding too much liquid so that the smoothie bowl has a thick consistency. Start with 2/3 cup and gradually add more if needed.
3. Sneak in Some Extra Nutrients
Adding spinach, protein powder, yogurt, or even frozen cauliflower can help amp up the nutritional benefits of your smoothie bowl and keep you feeling fuller longer. We recommend:
Half of an avocado
1/2 cup of frozen cauliflower
Handful of spinach
4. Get Creative with Toppings
One of the best parts of a smoothie bowl are the toppings! Add some texture & flavor with sliced banana, fresh berries, a drizzle of nut butter or honey and of course your favorite Ancient Grain or Grain-Free Purely Elizabeth Granola.
