The secret to making a perfectly thick strawberry smoothie bowl is frozen fruit, specifically frozen strawberries and bananas. That gives the mixture a creamy, ice cream-like consistency. Balance the thickness by gradually adding skyr until you achieve a satisfyingly thick consistency.
Remember, the perfect smoothie bowl is not only about texture, but also about flavour, so use ripe bananas to ensure it is sweetened.

A strawberry and banana smoothie bowl makes for an excellent breakfast and serves nicely as brunch as well. The ripe bananas and the creamy skyr create a rich mouthfeel that makes the bowl luxurious enough to be used as a treat too. The strawberries imbue freshness and a hint of tanginess that perfectly balances the açai powder. Açai is a popular ingredient that lends a unique, tropical flavour to smoothie bowls. Its taste is often described as somewhere between that of wild berries and chocolate, so it is slightly sweet but also somewhat earthy. It pairs nicely with the sweet, ripe bananas that bring an almost vanilla custard-like flavour to the smooth bowl.
The indulgence of this strawberry smoothie bowl lends itself well to a range of different toppings. A mix of fresh and crunchy variants will offer a nice contrast to its smoothness. Well-selected toppings also ensure an interesting eating experience. We suggest topping your bowls with sweet, tropical mango, fresh strawberries, and some of your favourite granola with seeds, grains, and nuts. This combination ensures that the flavours of the base itself are highlighted, the tropical undertones of the ripe bananas are heightened, and the bowl's creamy texture is contrasted. Arranging them in different ways is an easy way to vary the look of your bowls and make them even more enticing.

If you do not want the strawberries to play the main role alone, you can easily mix the delightful berries with other frozen fruits or berries. For example, let the mango advance to a smoothie ingredient rather than a topping for a more tropical flavour. You can also add tangy pineapple for more refreshing notes. Sweet-tart raspberries or blueberries also work well with the sweet strawberries and the earthy acai. If you want to serve your strawberry smoothie bowl with different toppings, all the fruits and berries mentioned above are good options for fresh and juicy additions. If you are looking for more crunch, chia seeds, nuts, and shredded coconut are good options that will add nutty undertones and sweetness, respectively.
