How to make the dreamiest (and healthiest!) smoothie bowls

Smoothies are a great way to get in a healthy serving of fruits, and turning your breakfast smoothie into a fun decorative bowl will get your day started on the right note! There are *tons* of social media accounts dedicated to showing off beautiful smoothie bowls in all colors of the rainbow and featuring delicious toppings. The queens of thick, colorful smoothie bowls are twin sisters Ashley and Taylor Johnston (@twincoast on Insta and TikTok).  Their account is *super* aesthetically pleasing, and their smoothies look beyond amazing! Here are some of their top tips to get the perfect creamy texture for smoothie bowls. 

Switch up your fruits!

Ashley and Taylor use lots of extra fruit to make their smoothies thick. Their go-to choices are raspberries, blueberries, bananas and strawberries, but they are constantly mixing it up to create unique flavors. You can find specific recipes in the captions of their Instagram videos, but their biggest tip is to use fresh fruit rather than frozen to make them taste *that* much better.

It's all about the accessories

The blender 

In order to get the perfect texture, Twin Coast uses a Vitamix blender for smoothie making. They posted a full tutorial of how to use the blender on Youtube, giving you the inside scoop on how to step up your smoothie game. Bonus: their technique also works on other models like Ninja or Blendtech, so you *don't* have to spend a ton of money buying a new blender to make it work!
