Acai Bowls

Acai Bowls are summer in a bowl!  The consistency is like soft serve and the toppings are endless!  They are so fun and have limitless possibilities.  If you do not have have a high speed blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec, this combination may be tough for your blender.  You will just have to try it out and see how well it works.  If you are wondering if this is breakfast, a treat or a snack, the answer is, all three!  Have fun with it and top it with the toppings that you have on hand and will love.  Enjoy!

Makes 1 large acai bowl

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 - 3/4 C almond milk

  • 1 frozen packet acai

  • 1 frozen banana

  • 1 T raw honey (optional, can omit if reducing sugar intake)

  • Topping options: any fresh fruit, granola, cacao nibs, shredded coconut, hemp seeds, almond butter, peanut butter, raw honey, coconut or almond yogurt, nuts

Method:

1.  Add the first 4 ingredients to a high speed blender. Start with 1/2 cup of almond milk and add more as needed. If you do not have a high speed blender, you may want to cut the frozen banana up into small pieces beforehand.*

2.  Pour into a bowl and add toppings.  Consume right away before it melts.

Recipe Notes:

I have always used a high speed blender (Vitamix or Blendtec) to make acai bowls and other smoothies. Depending on your blender, you may not be able to get the thick consistency needed for a smoothie bowl.
