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.

GRADUATION CUTIES – CLEMENTINE ORANGES and APPLES WITH GRADUATION CAPS- PARTY IDEAS

HELLO AGAIN!  Can you tell we are excited about graduation this year?  This oh-so-simple party idea will have you looking like the smartest (and most clever) hostess in town!  Simply, use a round fruit of your choice…apples, oranges, etc. and add a graduation cap made of cupcake liners and paper!  

Draw a face on the fruit using an edible food marker (found at craft stores in the baking aisle).

For our graduation caps, we cut chalkboard foam board into squares so that we could write messages and names on the tops of the hats with chalk.  You can also just use black construction paper or cardstock.  I am sure a chalk pen would work well, too!

Let me know if you make these!  I can see these being a big hit at Kindergarten Graduations…all the way up to college and beyond!  You can also see how we made more graduation gift ideas on our YouTube Channel.
