Acai Bowl Recipe ~ Easy, Healthy & Delicious

After trying acai bowls for years and always wishing we could replicate our favorites at home, my daughter and I decided to test our own recipe. We are so happy to finally have it figured out, and we wanted to share it with you. The great thing about acai bowls is that you can adjust them to your liking. Remember to try different toppings according to your favorite tastes and flavors. Here is our version~ we hope you LOVE it!

ACAI BOWL RECIPE

1 Frozen Acai Puree Pouch (found in frozen fruit section) We use Sambazon unsweetened and organic

1 Frozen Banana

1 cup frozen fruit of your choice (we use half cup blueberries and half cup strawberries)

1/2 cup pure apple juice (cold)

1/4- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1-2 Tablespoons Honey

To make the acai bowl, simply add the ingredients to a powerful blender (we use a Ninja) and blend. Stop to scrape down sides and continue to blend until the ingredients are smooth. The mixture should be thick enough to eat with a spoon.

Pour mixture into a deep bowl or divide into 2 smaller bowls to serve.

Top mixture with granola, blueberries, sliced strawberries, blackberries, raspberries.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

Tips and Toppings for Acai Bowls

When making an acai bowl, be sure that all of the fruit ingredients are frozen. The frozen fruit gives the mixture the desired texture and consistency. Using a powerful blender will help as you blend the frozen ingredients. If you thaw the acai puree or any other fruit, the acai bowl will melt too quickly or never achieve the correct consistency.

We have saved the mixture in the freezer to enjoy the next day, but we prefer it served immediately after being made.
