These days, many of your catering customers may be looking for fresher, healthier alternatives. And while the go-to might be salads, there is another option worth exploring: smoothie bowls. Preparing and serving smoothie bowls in an off-site setting is not as difficult as you might think. Here are a few tips to help streamline the process for you.
Pre-measure your ingredients
If you have to measure every ingredient for each smoothie bowl you make, it will take you far too long to prepare smoothie bowls for each guest. Streamline the process by pre-measuring your ingredients into cups. Put all of the solid ingredients for a single smoothie bowl into one paper cup. Make as many of those cups as you think you'll need, and then line them all up on a big tray. This way, when you make a smoothie bowl, you can just grab a cup, pour the contents into the blender, add your liquid, and blend away.
Offer two options
If you offer too many smoothie bowl options, you'll spend a lot of time trying to make sure you have the right ingredients. But if you offer just one smoothie bowl, there may be some guests who don't like the one you're serving. Serving two options tends to be the perfect compromise. Make sure they are quite different from one another. For instance, you may want to make one high-protein smoothie bowl with peanut butter and whey then another fruit-based one with only berries and other fruits.
Use disposable bowls
When you're catering a large party, serving smoothie bowls could mean you'll have way too many bowls to transport and then clean. So, use disposable bowls. Paper ones that are lined with a little bit of wax work well. You can even find eco-friendly ones if you're looking for a greener option.
Disposable spoons make things easier, too. Plastic ones are the obvious go-to, but there are actually some biodegradable ones made from plant fibers that work pretty well. Advertising that you use biodegradable bowls and spoons is a good way to draw more customers to your smoothie bowl catering business.
If you follow the tips above, you should have an easier time preparing and serving smoothie bowls during off-site catering service. Whether you're preparing food for a party of 10 or 100, the tips above should streamline the process and make sure your guests are happy with your service.
