Frequently asked questions

What makes smoothies thicker?

If the smoothie bowl isn’t as thick as you would like it to be, there are a few things you can add that will make your smoothie thicker. Try using frozen fruits instead of fresh ones. Get in the habit of not throwing out overripe bananas and freeze them instead. Using frozen bananas will also help thicken your smoothie bowl. Other ingredients that would be great to use to thicken your smoothie are oats, ice, whey protein powder, pumpkin puree, nut butter, tofu, and yogurt.

Can you make a smoothie bowl the night before?

I would not recommend making the smoothie bowl the night before. The smoothie will not be thick and will sort of melt. Usually, there will be some sort of separation between the blended fruits and the liquid you used. It is still doable but you will not get that perfect smoothie bowl texture. You may want to cover the smoothie bowl and freeze them the night before. When ready the next day, place the smoothie bowl out for about 30 minutes before serving.

What is the difference between a smoothie and a smoothie bowl?

Smoothie and smoothie bowls are quite similar in the sense that you use pretty much the same ingredients for both. Smoothie bowls can have a thicker consistency that is served in a bowl with some toppings and is usually eaten with a spoon. Whereas, smoothies are served in a cup.

Notes and tips

  • Experiment using your favorite frozen berries, or a single berries of your choice that you prefer. There are many other frozen fruits that you can add without limiting yourself to just berries.
  • Add more protein! You can add some vanilla protein powder. Use either Whey protein or plant-based protein powder.
  • Consider adding half a cup of Greek yogurt to make the smoothie thicker and add on a good serving of protein.
  • Play around with the toppings. You can get so creative with this.
  • Use frozen bananas if possible. This will keep your smoothie bowl thicker and smoother.
