I’m officially an Acai Bowl addict. Soooooo trendy, right?
Yesterday, my friend Desi & I became pros at acai-bowl-making.
Saturday activities: not leaving the house, making food all day, and watching ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ twice. We’re so interesting…
Basically, this is a smoothie in a bowl, and you can load it up with all the toppings that your little heart desires ( control freaks & picky eaters, rejoice ).
The acai berry is loaded with antioxidants that help lower cholesterol levels, promote weightloss, improve skin health ( I use this night cream by Eminence & its loaded with Acai oil ), etc, etc, etc. You get it. It’s good as shit for you. If you want more details on the benefits of Acai, read this post.
In a world of Acai bowl recipes, I think that this one is the BEST. I’m a little biased, because I created it exactly like I like…. so I guess my opinion isn’t exactly shocking. Here’s the dealio ( and, as usual, you can tweak to your own taste ):
♥ MAKES 2 BOWLS
– 2 Frozen Acai Berry Packets
– 1/2 to 1 whole pitaya
– 1/2 cup frozen berries
– 1/2 cup pineapple
– 1/2 cup yogurt
– coconut water or almond milk ( varies based on consistency you like )
– Berries & Bananas
– Granola (my FAV recipe here!)
– Goji Berries
– Bee Pollen
– Chia Seeds
– Coconut Shavings
1. Combine all ‘inside’ ingredients in a blender
2. Top with your topping selection
Its SO simple, SO delicious, and is loaded with super-foods. I mean really, I feel like I’m adding years onto my life every time I eat one of these. Whats your fav way to make an acai bowl? Did I miss anything???
