How to Make the Perfect Acaí Bowl at Home!

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

If you have been following my FASTer Way to Fat Loss journey, (you can see those posts HERE and HERE) then you know that I love Acaí Bowls! These yummy bowls are a great way to get in good carbs on a regular macro day. Acaí is also filled with so many antioxidants and omegas and is SO good for you!

If you have purchased these bowls at specialty shops, you know that they can be very pricey. I have found that making Acaí Bowls at home requires a bit of a learning curve, but I feel that I have found the perfect technique and they turn out perfect every time. Not only can I enjoy my favorite treat at home, but I am saving myself so much money in the long run! I thought that it would be helpful to share this recipe since so many people are into the Acaí Bowl and Smoothie Bowl craze these days!

INGREDIENTS:

1 Sambazon Acaí Packet (I usually buy mine at BJ’s, but you can also find them at any grocery store in the frozen section)

1 banana (keep half of the banana whole, then slice the remaining portion)

Unsweetened Almond Milk

1/2 cup frozen fruit blend (any will do)

1/4 cup blueberries

1/4 cup sliced strawberries

1 serving of your favorite granola

1 tablespoon of almond butter or peanut butter

optional – I often add a few scoops of collagen powder to help me hit my protein levels for the day. I am currently using this one, but there are lots of great options out there!

DIRECTIONS: 

Place the Sambazon Acaí Packet in a blender (I highly recommend this blender!)

Add half of the banana and the frozen fruit.

Add just a splash of the unsweetened almond milk.

Turn the blender on and begin mixing.

Check the consistency of the mixture. Your goal is for it to be silky and smooth. I only add a splash of almond milk at the beginning then you can go from there and add more if you need to. You do not want to add too much liquid or the mixture will become more like a beverage.

Pour the Acaí mixture from the blender into a bowl.

Now comes the fun part! Start layering all of your delicious fruit! Layer the sliced banana, strawberries, blueberries and granola. Drizzle with peanut butter or almond butter and enjoy!

These Acaí Bowls are so versatile and you can add any fruit. You can even add things like sliced almonds or shaved coconut. The possibilities are endless!

What are your favorite Acaí Bowl toppings? I would love to hear!
