Acai Bowl Recipe
I make acai bowls at least 4x a week. I have an obsession– it’s an issue. Thankfully, acai berries are full of antioxidants, which make it a great breakfast or snack. As much as I love a store-bought, ready-made acai bowl, they can be super pricey, might not taste the way you like, & packed with some unhealthy toppings like sugary granola. Homemade acai bowls + Paleonola to the rescue!
- What is acai, you ask? It is a berry & considered a fruit.
- What is an acai bowl, you ask? It is a thick smoothie that you eat with a spoon, it usually comes with all sorts of toppings and mix-ins, & will likely cost you an arm and a leg.
- What is Paleonola, you ask? My OBSESSION! It is not your average granola that I order off Amazon in bulk. Traditional granola’s are filled with 90% oats & made with ingredients like canola oil, cane sugar, soy lecithin that diminish our intention of trying to eat healthy. But Paleonola is grainless granola packed with a delicious nuts and seeds combo and blended with a generous portion of unsweetened coconut and berries. (Not gonna lie… I got some of that off their website because my version would have just been “It’s a granola that is so yummy!” but I wanted to give yall the real low-down)
Recipe for acai bowl:
- 1 Sambazon Acai Packet
- 1 cup of Trader Joe’s Organic Tropical Fruit Blend
- 1/4 cup of almond milk (or more for lighter texture)
- 1 tbsp of almond butter (takes away the tartness of the fruit)
Just blend in a high-power blender & add your toppings!
My favorites toppings are…
- Flax seed
- Almond butter
