If you keep good food in your fridge, you will eat good food. —Errick McAdams

Since we all binged over the holiday weekend, I thought I’d share an açai bowl recipe I made to get you back on track.

This is my first time making an açai bowl so please adjust ingredients and the amounts according to your taste and preferences.

I’ll be posting other recipes in the future as I experiment to find the best and yummiest combos.

For this recipe, I wanted some bites of chocolate, but not indulge too much so I used Love Crunch granola which I talked about in a past foodie post.

Here’s what you’ll need for your açai berry bowl:

Açai Berry Bowl

Course Snack
Keyword acai, acai bowl
Prep Time 3 minutes
Servings 1

Ingredients

  • 1 packet açai puree (I get mine from Trader Joe's)
  • 1 cup almond milk (My brand preference is Almond Breeze)
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsp blackberries
  • 2 tbsp blueberries
  • 1 tbsp raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup granola
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds

Instructions

  1. Put 1/2 cup of almond milk into your blender. You can use more for a looser consistency.

  2. Open your açai puree packet and put the puree block into your blender along with 1/2 a banana and blend.

  3. While your base is blending, cut the other banana half into slices.

  4. Pour your açai mixture into a bowl.

  5. Top/decorate your açai berry bowl with banana slices, berry fruits, nuts, granola, and sprinkle some chia seeds on top.

Other healthy ingredient suggestions you can use as you experiment with flavor combinations:

Additional smoothie bowl base options:

Orange juice (if you want your açai berry bowl more tart/fruity)
Coconut water
Greek yogurt (I love Greek Gods Greek yogurt in Honey Vanilla)
Kefir (if you want your bowl to have some tang and get in some probiotics)
Kale (I wash and freeze any leftover kale from my meal preps for smoothies)
Spinach (wash and freeze to use as needed)
Coconut oil (for additional healthy fat)
Avocado slices (for healthy fats and because #avocado)
Maca powder (so many health benefits to using this!)
Peanut butter powder (I use PB2)


Additional topping options:

Fruits (I prefer topping my açai bowls with frozen fruits for more bite): pomegranate seeds, strawberries, raspberries, pink dragonfruit, mango, cherries, figs, kiwi, etc.
Coconut flakes (the meatier flakes, the better)
Mint leaves
Honey
Peanut butter (I use no more than a tablespoon or two)
Almond butter
Chia/flax seeds (keeps you feeling fuller longer)
Cacao nibs (for some extra chocolatey texture)
Bee pollen (anti-inflammatory with a lot of health benefits)
Edible flowers (to add some prettiness, lol)

I hope you enjoyed this easy and quick açai berry bowl recipe! The ingredients I used in this recipe gave it a very natural sweet flavor. I’ll be using yogurt, sweetened almond milk, and extra frozen fruit to sweeten it some more and thicken up the base next time.
