The benefits of smoothie bowls are endless from improving your gut health, contributing to glowing skin, and boosting your immune system! Since I'm all about healing your gut and improving your skin from within, here are the skin healthy benefits:
- Banana: Bananas are rich in vitamins A and C, which help promote a healthy complexion by nourishing and moisturizing the skin, leaving it looking radiant and hydrated.

TIPS ON MAKING THE BEST EVER THICK PINEAPPLE BANANA SMOOTHIE BOWL
USE FROZEN FRUIT & VEGGIES ONLY. Frozen fruits and vegetables will make your smoothies super thick and creamy. Fresh fruits will make your smoothie bowl really watery. Don't use any fresh fruit in this pineapple banana smoothie smoothie bowl unless you're using it as a topping.
DON'T USE TOO MUCH LIQUID. Only start with a splash of liquid in your pineapple smoothie bowl and add more only as needed to get the blades of your blender going. Too much liquid will make your smoothie bowl watery and unable to support toppings.
USE YOUR TAMPER OR STIR DOWN DOWARDS THE BLADES. Keep pushing chunks of frozen fruit towards the bottom of your blender until it is smooth and creamy.
DON'T OVER BLEND. Once your smoothie is smooth, stop blending it! If you keep blending for too long it can start to melt and you won't have a super thick bowl.

Scoop the smoothie into a bowl and add your toppings.
