Thick Smoothie Bowls

A smoothie bowl is a smoothie in a bowl instead of a glass! Instead of sipping it, you can devour it with a spoon. It’s thicker than the smoothie in a glass, making it like a meal. It’s perfect for topping with your favorite nuts, seeds, or berries!

Smoothie bowls are a fantastic option for a meal to enjoy when you don’t have a lot of time. All you have to do is throw in all the ingredients into a blender and a delicious, fulfilling meal is ready to enjoy.

Whether you want to enjoy a keto smoothie bowl for breakfast, after an intense workout, or when you’re craving something sweet and energizing, a thick smoothie bowl has got you covered!

Many smoothie bowls are loaded with sugar and carbs so they’re definitely not keto-approved.

Avoid ordering a smoothie bowl at a restaurant or buying one from a grocery store because they will most probably not be keto-friendly and contain lots of added sugars hence being high in carbs.

But with this keto-friendly, low-carb smoothie bowl recipe, you don’t have to worry about added sugars. Whole ingredients are added to create the yummiest version of a smoothie bowl that you will love! 

A thick smoothie bowl needs an ingredient to make its consistency thick and creamy. For this reason, many people add bananas or high-fat creams but that will not be keto-friendly. 

Avocado is a much healthier ingredient to make this smoothie bowl thick. It has high component of healthy fats does not add extra carbs to the recipe and provides the right texture to this smoothie bowl. 

Frozen Avocado Smoothie Ingredients:

This avocado berry smoothie keto recipe has only 4 ingredients to make and takes no more than 5 minutes to make!

Avocado:

In this recipe, avocado is the star ingredient since it will give the body to this smoothie bowl with its rich and creamy texture. Avocados are commonly used and referred to as a vegetable but surprisingly they’re actually fruit!

Avocados make a great and nutritious addition to a keto diet because of their high content of healthy fats good for your heart and low carbs.

According to Healthline, avocados provide an array of other important nutrients as well, including vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, and potassium. A serving of 3.5-ounce (100-gram)of avocado contains around 1.5 grams of net carbs only.

It’s undoubtedly one of the best fruits you can eat if you’re following a ketogenic lifestyle. Avocado adds such a creamy texture to the smoothie bowl that feels like you’re having a dessert instead of a keto smoothie!

You won’t even taste the avocado because it’s added mainly just for the nutrients and the texture!

How to freeze avocados:

This recipe includes a frozen avocado because it’ll taste delectable and our smoothie bowl needs it for structure. Freezing avocados is fairly easy. Just make sure the avocados are ripe before cutting them into small pieces.

Then place them on a tray with parchment paper and make sure the pieces are not touching. Freeze for at least 1 hour. You can also store your chopped avocado in a freezer bag.

You can also store pureed or smashed avocado in a silicone ice cube tray and use a few frozen avocado cubes in your smoothies every day. This saves more time and makes it even easier to prepare the smoothie when you are short on time!

Mixed berries:

We’ll add mixed berries to this smoothie including strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. All these berries are low in carbs hence perfect for this keto smoothie bowl.

These berries will also act as a sweetener to the smoothie with their natural sugars. By using frozen berries and frozen avocados, you will not need to add ice cubes to the smoothie and they’ll also give a thick and smooth texture.

According to Healthline, the berries with the lowest net carbs are raspberries having 11.9 grams of carbs per 100 grams, and blackberries having 10.2 grams of carbs per 100 grams.

Strawberries are also a good option as they come in at 7.7 grams of carbs per 100 grams of berries.

The highest net carb count blueberries have is 14.5 grams of carbs per 100 grams which is higher than other berries and is advised to consume in lesser quantities when on a keto diet.

Coconut milk:

The liquid content for this smoothie bowl is coconut milk. Coconut milk is typically found in the Asian foods aisle in most supermarkets.

Canned coconut milk is a much better option than carton coconut milk since the latter is heavily diluted and not as high in healthy fats. A cup of coconut milk typically contains just 13 g of carbs.

Which is the best coconut milk for smoothies?

Regular, full-fat, unsweetened, canned coconut milk is the best coconut milk for smoothies used in our recipe because it’s great for a keto diet.

Sweetened versions of coconut milk may contain enough carbs to push you over your daily limit when on a ketogenic diet. Therefore, check the label of the can to ensure you’re buying an unsweetened type.

Unsweetened, reduced-fat options, such as light canned or carton varieties of coconut milk, likely won’t push over your carb limit, although they won’t do much to help you reach your daily fat target either.

Therefore, if you’re going to include coconut milk in your keto diet, the best coconut milk for smoothies that makes the most sense to use is an unsweetened, full-fat version.

Liquid stevia sweetener:

To add some sweetness to the smoothie bowl, we’ll add liquid stevia. According to Healthline, Stevia is a natural sweetener derived from the Stevia rebaudiana plant. It’s considered a nonnutritive sweetener, which means that it contains little to no calories or carbs.

Unlike regular sugar, animal and human studies have shown that stevia may help lower blood sugar levels, hence the perfect sweetener for a keto recipe.

Stevia is available in both liquid and powdered form and can be used to sweeten everything from drinks to desserts. However, because it’s much sweeter than regular sugar, recipes require less stevia to achieve the same flavor.

Instructions:

Once you have all your ingredients and a high-speed blender, you’re ready to prepare your frozen smoothie bowl.

  • Combine all the ingredients in a high-speed blender
  • Blend them until the consistency is smooth and all the ingredients are blended completely.
  • Taste and adjust the sweetness of the smoothie as needed.
  • Top the smoothie with your choice of toppings.

Recommended toppings:

Although this smoothie bowl is quite delicious and fulfilling on its own, you can experiment with adding your choice of toppings as well.

  • There are many options that you can add. An assortment of nuts for instance almonds, pecans, walnuts, macadamia nuts, pili nuts, etc. Chop them and top them over the smoothie bowl. These nuts will add a texture and crunch alongside the creaminess of the smoothie bowl.

  • You can also add some coconut chips or shreds as a topping making it richer in nutrients.

  • Seeds are also a great option to garnish your smoothie bowl with. They don’t just taste good, but they also give a nice look to your smoothie bowl. You can add chia seeds, flax seeds, Sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, or hemp seeds which are full of antioxidants, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and protein.

  • To add more richness t your smoothie bowl you can add nut butter or seed butter. A dollop of sun butter, pecan butter, or almond butter will make the recipe more satisfying and rich.
