i know i’m super late to the party on this one, but i feel like my life changed after i had my first acai bowl in hawaii a few weeks ago. i could not get enough of them, and came back to new york craving them every morning. after i blogged about how much i liked them, a few of you shared that they are easy to make at home. i was skeptical, but then i watched a youtube video a commenter linked of someone making one and she did it in like 2 minutes, and my mind was blown!
we made our own acai bowls at home last week. they truly are so refreshing to eat and fun to make, plus i feel extra fancy since it’s labeled a “super food.” it rounds out the pint of ben and jerry’s ice cream i ate at midnight the night before, cause i’m starting my day with a super food, right? RIGHT.
we searched a few local grocery stores to find acai. most carry the fruit in some form in the frozen section, but were out the day we looked. we ended up finding these frozen packets with an online grocer.
it’s a family affair, anything made in the kitchen. ;)
we let the kids each make their own bowl. eleanor likes her acai bowls plain, with no fruit, and samson likes his with everything, plus honey, like me.
frozen acai bowls:
blend about 8 ounces frozen acai with 1 frozen banana and 1/4 cup almond milk (we double this recipe for the four of us.) it’s also really good blended with frozen blueberries, too!
top with a variety of sliced fruit, granola, shredded coconut and/or honey. enjoy!!!
