Nice Cream 101 - Recipes + Tips

Seeing as I eat smoothie bowls - or nice cream - every day and post them on Instagram, you must've seen this post coming from a mile away. I always share my recipes on my stories or through posts, but this makes it easy so that everything's in one place! Here's all you'll ever need to start making the most bomb smoothie bowls in no time! Let's dig in! 🍨

☆ PINEAPPLE SUNSHINE BOWL ☆

☆ 2 frozen bananas
☆ 10 pieces of frozen mango
☆ 10 pieces of frozen pineapple
☆ splash of almond milk
☆☆

☆ BLUE-GREEN GOODNESS BOWL ☆
 ☆ 2 frozen bananas
☆ 1/2 tsp spirulina powder
☆ splash of almond milk
☆☆

☆ BERRY YUMMY BOWL ☆
 ☆ 2 frozen bananas
☆ 1 handful of blueberries
☆ 1 handful of raspberries
☆ splash of almond milk
☆☆

☆ BRIGHT BEETS BOWL ☆
☆ 2 frozen bananas
☆ 1.5 handfuls frozen raspberries
☆ 1/2 tsp beet powder
☆☆

I'll have to say that my favorite is the pineapple sunshine smoothie... the texture always comes out the best, the flavor is 10/10, and the color just adds to its awesomeness. Although... the pink beet bowl is just so bright and vibrant that I end up making it at least three times a week 😋

Now for my tips to making the best bowls - I've been getting asked like crazy recently how I make them so thick!
#1: Use frozen bananas! Their texture gives the smoothie its creaminess without altering the flavor too much.
#2: Freeze everything!! All the fruits and veggies you add, make sure they're frozen!
#3: No matter what you put in your smoothies, you won't get that nice cream thickness unless you use a  food processor or high-speed blender (1100V or higher). I have a Nutri-Bullet that I love for liquid smoothies and matcha lattes, but it doesn't work great for nice cream. The Hamilton Beach food processor that I got it on Amazon is great, but I've also seen that the Vitamix Pro works well if you're looking for a new blender.

Happy nice cream making!
P.S. I will definitely post my new recipes when I come up with more!
