Tips

Serving a banana and blackberry smoothie bowl at the wrong temperature can lead to a watery and slightly uninteresting eating experience. Make sure that you serve it immediately after making it – or, if you need to prepare it in advance, store it in the fridge with the toppings separately.

Tips

To ensure the desired consistency of your smoothie, try blending it in stages. Begin by blending frozen blackberries and quark until the texture is smooth. After that, add the remaining ingredients and blend away until the mixture is just the right type of smooth for you.

Questions about blackberry smoothie bowl

Should you have any burning questions about making a blackberry banana smoothie bowl, we have the answers. Below, we answer some of the most frequently asked questions about it.

What to put in a blackberry smoothie bowl?
To get a creamy, flavourful smoothie bowl, we recommend using frozen blackberries, banana, quark, and oats. This combination ensures a balanced flavour and a perfect texture. If you want, you can replace the quark with, for example, skyr which will give you an equally delicious result.
What toppings are good on a blackberry smoothie bowl?
You can use a wide selection of toppings on a blackberry smoothie bowl, but we suggest a good combination of fruits and seeds. Blackberries, banana, kiwi, and passion fruit work exceptionally well together. They bring a combination of sweetness and tartness as well as a creamy and juicy texture. Chia seeds and coconut flakes add a mildly exotic flavour, while honey imparts lovely floral notes alongside its direct sweetness.
Can you store blackberry smoothie bowl in the fridge?
You can store a blackberry smoothie bowl in the fridge, but it is recommended that you consume it right after you make it to maintain its taste and texture. If you store it in the fridge, you should enjoy it within 24 hours and give it a stir before consuming it.

Make it your own

The key to making the best blackberry smoothie bowl is to make it exactly how you want it. We do not take ownership of our recipe; we want you to have fun and experiment with it.

The oats provide the smoothie base with texture and volume, but you can also use different seeds to achieve the same consistency. Both quinoa flakes and chia seeds work wonderfully, and just because you have chia seeds as topping does not mean you are not allowed to add them to the smoothie as well.

With such a wide variety of toppings, you can easily pick and mix other options based on your preferences. For example, try sliced strawberries. They bring a lovely sweetness along with yet another dimension of eye-pleasing colours. Instead of liquid honey, a drizzle of sweet nut butter is also a popular option.
