Acaí Bowl Recipe

  • Servings: 1-2
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print
Base/blend:

  • frozen Acaí pack (I use an unsweetened kind and use only half the pack)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • About 1/2 cup other frozen fruit such as mango, peaches, strawberries, etc.
  • a small amount of either almond milk, coconut water, or just water. [It takes a little practice in knowing how much liquid to use. I use a small amount and only add more if my fruit is not blending. You want the base to be the consistency of  soft serve ice cream almost, so it’s not too “liquidy” and you can eat it with a spoon!]
  • Other add ins like plant protein powder, ground flax, maca powder, spirulina.

After blending, put the base into a bowl and top your acaí base with:

  • fresh fruit. Anything you’d like: pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, banana, kiwi. I try to switch it up but my favorite is strawberries blueberries and banana.
  • nuts: I use raw organic walnuts and sometimes pistachios
  • seeds: chia seeds or hemp seeds
  • my other favorite toppings include: cacao nibs, coconut flakes, and raw organic honey
  • other ideas: goji berries, bee pollen, granola, raw bars/protein bars cut up into small pieces
