Test Kitchen Tip
The key to a thick smoothie bowl is blending slowly at first, adding only as much liquid as necessary, and using a smoothie wand (tamper) to scrape the sides and push the food down as it blends. Using a high-powered blender (such as a Vitamix) is a good idea, too, so as not to run the risk of stressing the motor on less powerful blenders.
Heat banana, frozen blackberries, frozen blueberries, and beets in a microwave-safe bowl in microwave on defrost setting until fruit is slightly thawed, 30–60 seconds; transfer to a high-powered blender.
Add yogurt, kefir, chia seeds, and honey to blender and pulse until puréed; transfer to serving bowls.
