Grab a spoon and dive into a thick, fabulous smoothie bowl like no other. This incredible creation combines creamy skyr, frozen berries, ripe bananas, and açai into a heavenly blend. Unlike a thin and drinkable smoothie, each spoonful of this bowl is a delightfully thick and luscious experience. To make it even better it is generously topped with tasty toppings adding an extra layer of deliciousness.


  • Blend skyr, berries, banana, and acai powder for about 2 minutes until you have a thick, smooth consistency.
  • Pour the smoothie into two bowls and top with banana, granola, hemp seeds, almonds, and figs.

Do not blend for longer than necessary. When you blend ingredients, especially frozen ones, the friction and heat generated by the blender blades can affect the consistency of your smoothie. Over-blending can lead to an increase in temperature, causing the frozen ingredients to thaw and the mixture to become thinner.


For optimal taste and sweetness in your smoothie bowl, choose ripe bananas.


Adding frozen bananas to your smoothie is a fantastic way to make it creamy and thick. When you freeze ripe bananas and blend them, they turn into a smooth, velvety mixture that gives your smoothie a luxurious, ice cream-like texture.

Questions about thick smoothie bowl

Making a thick smoothie bowl might be new to you, but we have got you covered with a few tips to help you achieve that perfect thick consistency for your delicious smoothie bowl.

What makes a smoothie bowl thick?
In short: temperature. Frozen ingredients assure a thick smoothie bowl, and if you wait too long to eat it, you will see that it becomes thinner as it gets warmer. Using skyr in a smoothie can also contribute to its thickness. Skyr is an Icelandic cultured dairy product similar to yogurt but with an even thicker and creamier texture.
How to make a smoothie bowl thicker?
If your smoothie bowl is too thin, try adjusting the ratio of liquid to solid ingredients. If you have not mixed it yet, add the liquid gradually until you reach the desired consistency. If that is too late, try adding more frozen fruits or berries. It is also a good idea to blend the ingredients in stages, starting with the frozen fruits and some of the skyr. Once they are well-blended, add more skyr gradually while continuing to blend.
Why is my smoothie bowl not thick?
If you added too much liquid or did not include enough solid ingredients, it can result in a thinner consistency. Also, fresh fruits and berries can result in a thinner consistency. Include a portion of frozen fruits or increase the amount of frozen ingredients to enhance the thickness of your smoothie bowl. Lastly, over-blending can lead to a thin texture, as the blender, and thereby the smoothie gets warm and loses some of the creaminess.

A creamy skyr base with frozen berries, banana, and acai

This luscious and refreshing smoothie starts with a creamy skyr base. Skyr is all about that velvety texture and tangy flavour. A medley of frozen berries gives it a burst of natural sweetness and a vibrant, eye-catching hue. And let us not forget about the ripe bananas that contribute to the creamy and smooth texture, adding just the right touch of natural sweetness. To take the flavour to the next level, we sprinkle in açai powder. It brings an earthy and slightly tart taste that perfectly complements the creamy and fruity smoothie base.

Soft and crunchy toppings

To create a delightful combination of textures, we recommend adorning the bowl with creamy banana slices, nutrient-rich hemp seeds, and chopped almonds that offer a satisfying crunch. A sprinkle of granola adds an extra layer of flavour and texture, resulting in a symphony of delightful sensations. For an added touch of elegance, top it all off with luscious fresh figs.
