When I want a thicker smoothie and I can’t be bothered with trying to slurp down a nearly-frozen fruit soup, I just make a smoothie bowl of it. It’s not much different from your regular kind of smoothie, except that it’s a bit thicker and you can throw on whatever toppings on top. And the fun part: eat it from a bowl.
Although it looks fancy, I just added on top what I already had laying around: extra pieces of frozen raspberries and a bag of walnuts. You can add whatever you want to it. Sometimes when I want a little more flavor, I drizzle honey and peanut butter on top.
Frozen banana hack: Ever freeze an entire banana? Then you know how challenging it is to peel that banana. All you need to do is throw the frozen banana into the microwave for about 30 seconds or less, this will allow the peel the soften a little bit.
No need to stretch the time in the microwave, we’re not cooking the banana.
Also, you’ll want to use ripe bananas for this recipe. This will help sweeten up the smoothie bowl.
