Smoothie Variations And Recipe Notes

If you haven’t got some of the ingredients, or want to swap some of the, or even add extra ingredients, check out my suggestions below:

  1. Swap The Banana: If you are not a huge fan of bananas, I recommend that you use frozen mango, pineapple, or raspberries.
  2. Swap The Berries: Swap the blueberries for other berries, such as strawberries or raspberries.
  3. Add More Protein: If you are not vegan, add 1/2 cup of yogurt, but reduce the almond milk to 1/4 cup. You can also use protein powder to increase the protein.
  4. Boost With Superfoods: You can add chia seeds, flaxseeds, powders, such as matcha powder, or anything else you like or fancy.

My Tips For Making The Perfect Almond Smoothie Bowl

  1. Use Frozen Fruit: If you don’t have frozen fruit, this recipe won’t work. Make sure you stock up on some frozen fruit before you make this smoothie bowl!
  2. Use a High-Speed Blender: To make this smoothie bowl, you will need a high-speed blender. I love using a blender with a pushdown stick.
  3. Chill The Serving Bowl: Pop the serving bowl in the fridge or freezer whilst you are preparing the smoothie. It helps your smoothie stay cooler for longer.
  4. Add Toppings: Add toppings that complement the smoothie bowl. I love adding seeds, nuts, even granola, etc.
  5. Eat ASAP: As soon as the smoothie bowl is served, eat it immediately, as it will start to thaw.

The Equipment

If you like your smoothie bowls super thick, you will need to use a high-speed blender.

Otherwise, lower-speed blenders will work, but you may need to add more liquid resulting in a thinner smoothie bowl.
