Check out the following top tips for creating your very own sensational healthy smoothie bowls.

    How to make a smoothie bowl

    For the perfect smoothie bowl base, you’ll need three basic ingredients:


    1. Fruits or vegetables
    2. Water, juice, milk, or a milk alternative
    3. Oatmeal, frozen banana, or peanut butter to thicken

    Depending on the fruits or vegetables you choose, you can also sweeten your healthy smoothie bowls with honey, coconut, or maple syrup. If you prefer a thicker consistency, frozen fruit is a great option.

    Once you’ve got all your ingredients, put them into a blender, such as Philips High Speed Vacuum Blender. This will finely puree your ingredients, making them ideal for smoothies.

    Not only will your smoothie bowl taste amazing but adding your favourite toppings will also give you more nutrients. Here are some simple ways to boost important vitamins and nutrients in your smoothie bowl.

    Protein: Nuts are super easy to throw into your smoothie bowl. An 18g serving of almonds (around 23 whole almonds) contains 6g of protein, 11% of the men’s recommended daily intake (56g) and 14% of the women’s recommended daily intake (45g)†.

    Fibre: Chia seeds are a good source of fibre, with 11.2g of fibre per serving (around 28g)‡. This can help make your smoothie bowl more filling and increase good bacteria in your gut*.

    Vitamins: A smoothie bowl should be bright and colourful. For an extra punch and more vitamins and nutrients in your breakfast, slice up a banana on the berry smoothie bowl or place some raspberries and blueberries on your acai smoothie bowl.

    So, there you go. Healthy smoothie bowls are not only good for you but are easy to make and taste delicious. Why not give them a go today?
