What are smoothie bowls?
Smoothie bowls are pretty much just what they sound like. A smoothie that’s transferred to a bowl and topped with ingredients like sliced fruit, homemade granola, and other delicious toppings. The key here is smoothie bowls tend to be much thicker than regular drinkable smoothies.
How to make thick smoothie bowls
The key to making thick smoothie bowls is adding a very small amount of liquid and having a powerful blender to cut through the frozen ingredients. This could be a high speed blender or food processor with sharp blades.
Best blender for smoothie bowls
My new favorite blender to do the job is the Ninja Foodi Smoothie Bowl Maker. This unique kitchen tool not only has a sharp blade on the bottom but it also has a paddle on the top to rotate while it’s blending. This ensures everything gets nice and smooth without having to add more liquid or stop to mix with a spoon.
How to make this peanut butter smoothie bowl:
After you’ve picked out the perfect blender to use, let’s get to making this smoothie bowl:
- Add all ingredients to the blender and secure the lid on.
- Blend on high speed until ingredients are completely broken down. If you are using a Ninja Foodi Smoothie Bowl Maker, use the preset “bowl” option.
- Use a spatula to spoon mixture into a bowl, then add over toppings.
Customize with any toppings of your choice
A smoothie bowl is only as good as it’s toppings! For this peanut butter smoothie bowl, I love drizzling LOTS of creamy peanut butter on top. You can also add over any other toppings you like. Some of my favorites include granola, coconut flakes, banana slices, and peanuts.
Can you make it ahead of time?
To save time, you can add all smoothie ingredients (except the milk) to as ziploc bag or container and freeze the night before. Then, when it comes time to making your smoothie bowl, simply add the frozen ingredients to your blender and pour over the milk.
I love pairing this peanut butter smoothie both with a homemade protein coffee.
