To make the Acai Bowls, you need to buy the frozen acai. You can it find in the freezer section of Whole Foods where the other frozen fruit is. The pack I found (above), has the 4 frozen pouches of acai which makes 2 bowls.
Acai Bowls are most commonly blended with frozen acai fruit and banana, then topped with additional fruit of choice and nuts or granola. For my Acai Bowls here, I also blend in some frozen berries and a splash of fresh squeezed orange juice for additional flavor. The bowls come out in a thick smoothie-like consistency after blending. You can choose to top your bowl with whatever fruit you like and add some chopped nuts, granola, dried fruit, honey or even yogurt. The options are endless.
Hope you enjoy this easy-to-make, refreshing and SUPERFRUIT healthy bowl of goodness :)
7 ounces of frozen acai (2 pouches in the brand I bought above)
2 bananas (one for blending, the other for topping)
1 cup of frozen berries (I used a mix of raspberries, blueberries and blackberries)
Splash of fresh squeezed OJ
*feel free to add your favorite fruit, granola, honey, dried-fruit, coconut......etc.
Makes one large Acai Bowl
In a blender, add the frozen acai, frozen berries, the one banana (broken into pieces), and a splash of fresh squeezed OJ. Blend until smooth. (If you find that it's not blending well because there isn't enough liquid, add some more OJ until it starts to blend easier. Don't add too much though because you want a thick consistency). Pour into a bowl and top with sliced strawberries, sliced banana and gluten-free granola. Or, add whatever toppings you desire! Try topping with my Superfruit Granola.
