  1. Delicious Taste: The smoothie bowl mirrors the flavors of apple pie, complete with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger, making it appealing to anyone who enjoys the comforting taste of this traditional dessert.

Smoothie Bowl Variations And Recipe Notes:

This smoothie bowl can be changed easily if you need to make changes to it

You can experiment on your own, or try some of my suggestions below:

  1. Add Protein: You can add protein powder (I have tried vanilla) and it works wonderfully.
  2. Nut-Free: Swap the peanut butter for sunflower seed butter or use 1/2 ripe banana.
  3. Swap The Base: You can swap the oat milk for other dairy-free milk (or dairy).
  4. No Oats: Swap the oats for flaxseeds or use extra nut butter.

Top Smoothie Bowl-Making Tips:

  1. Use Frozen Fruit: Without frozen bananas, the smoothie bowl won’t work. Preslice and freeze the bananas the night before so that they are ready to be used the next day.
  2. Pre-Marinate The Apples: This is an important step if you want your bowl to taste like apple pie!
  3. Chill Your Serving Bowl: To allow the smoothie bowl to last cooler for longer once it’s blended, make sure you chill your serving bowl in the fridge or freezer for 10 minutes.
  4. Elevate The Smoothie Bowl With Toppings: Add texture and nutrients with toppings. You can experiment with your own toppings of choice.
  5. Eat It Immediately: The smoothie bowl is ice cold and starts to melt as soon as it’s blended. Eat it within 10-15 minutes of blending.

Try Some Of My Suggested Smoothie Bowl Toppings:

Some toppings that work well with this banana smoothie bowl include:  

  • Apple Granola.
  • A Drizzle Of Nut Butter.
  • Caramelized Nuts.
  • Sliced Banana.

Feel free to experiment with other toppings too!

The Recipe Equipment:

I have only tested making this smoothie bowl using my  Nutribullet 900 series.

However, from experience, most food processors are able to process smoothie bowls. 

Alternatively, using a high-speed blender is key. Not all blenders can blend thick smoothies.
