Acai bowls…..they’re definitely a hype. But what’s so great about a smoothie that you can eat from a bowl? Well, a lot!
This seemingly minor change-up from glass to bowl, is exactly what makes an acai bowl so special. Because it’s in a bowl, topped with all sorts of goodies, it asks you to take it slow, and spoon and savor each and every bite.
Acai powder adds that bit of oomph to an otherwise more-or-less-standard fruit and nut drink. And don’t get us started about the toppings: the options are endless!
Here is one of our favorite acai bowl recipes for breakfast or brunch.
Acai Bowl with Strawberries & Banana
Ingredients (yield: serves 1)
1 cup of frozen strawberries
1 frozen sliced banana
2 tablespoons acai powder
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tablespoon nut or seed butter
1/2 tablespoon honey (more or less to taste)
Your pick of fresh fruit, sliced. We used bananas, strawberries and raspberries in this recipe.
Clear, runny honey
Unsweetened coconut flakes
Dried goji berries
Chia or hemp seeds
Add the frozen fruits, acai powder, almond milk, nut or seed butter, and honey to a blender. Blend until creamy and smooth, adding extra almond milk as needed to get the blender running. Aim for a frozen-yogurt consistency (it should be thicker than a smoothie).
Spoon the acai mixture into bowls and top with sliced fruit, bee pollen, a drizzle of honey, and the optional toppings (if using).
