Thick berry smoothie bowl

After a few years of experimentation, I'm sharing my favorite thick berry smoothie bowl.  

If you've ever wondered how juice stores produce very thick smoothies, I've got you covered.  

From blender speed to ingredients, you'll never have to pay $10 for a smoothie bowl again.  

Do you dislike berry smoothies? I got your back. Look at this strawberry mango beauty or this green spirulina smoothie shake.  

INGREDIENTS Frozen berries: We can't make a thick berry smoothie bowl without berries! Note that raspberries and blackberries have little seeds that don't fully blend, and blueberry skins may get stuck on your teeth - be warned! 

A mix of strawberries and blueberries works best for me, but use what you can find. It is very important to buy frozen berries - to maximize flavor and thickness, we don't add any ice to our smoothie. 

Mango: this creamy fruit is perfect for making an extra thick smoothie bowl. In a pinch, substitute with a peach, or leave it out. 

Avocado: This is our secret ingredient. You'll need half of a perfectly ripe avocado. You won't be able to taste it, but you can feel the difference in the finished smoothie bowl. Hello healthy fats! 

Peanut butter: I like peanut butter in my smoothie bowl for thickness, protein and flavor. My nickname for this bowl is the "PB&J." You can also add a scoop of peanut butter on top if you like, or sub with a nut or seed butter of choice. 

Unsweetened non-dairy milk: Coconut milk and oat milk are my favorites, but almond milk works too. Try to keep it as plain as possible so the berries and peanut butter can shine unobstructed from added sugar and artificial vanilla flavor.
