One of my top three go-to breakfasts is this Strawberry and Cream Smoothie Bowl, which is vegan and really creamy. You only need a decent blender, four basic ingredients, and whatever toppings you choose.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: smoothies and smoothie bowls are my all-time favorite foods. Smoothies just cannot be surpassed when it comes to simplicity, portability, and nutritious value, which is why my husband and I consume them practically daily.

According to my perspective, smoothies are more of a snack (ideal for recuperation after a run) whereas smoothie bowls are a whole meal. If prepared properly, a smoothie or smoothie bowl may deliver a wealth of nutrients as well as lots of good fats, carbohydrates, and even protein in a single convenient serving.

THE RIGHT SMOOTHIE BOWL METHOD
When creating the ideal smoothie bowl, there are a few crucial factors to take into account.

Mostly use frozen fruit, but defrost it beforehand for a few minutes. The consistency required for a smoothie bowl cannot be achieved with fresh fruit. A far better option is frozen, which is frequently less expensive and doesn’t spoil. However, if you put a bunch of really tough strawberries in your blender and hope for the best, it won’t work out. Before blending, let frozen fruit thaw for 15 minutes. Alternatively, you may make the process go faster by heating the fruit in the microwave for 45 to 60 seconds.

The difference between a creamy, thick smoothie bowl and a watery smoothie bowl that can’t hold any toppings is subtle, so go light on the liquids. It’s preferable to limit liquid intake as much as possible.

For more creaminess, include some (good) fat. A small amount of fat produces a texture that is incredibly smooth, whether it be in full-fat yogurt, almond, peanut, or even avocado butter. Additionally, it results in a bowl that is more well balanced and keeps you fuller longer.
