Quick, easy and healthy meals are my favorite type of meals. I also don’t necessarily differentiate what types of food I eat for different meals. For the most part, I have a few meals that I love to make and will eat at any time of the day. A lot of people find that weird and I can’t really argue with them. I have weird eating habits, what can I say? One of my favorite go-to meals that I will eat when ever is a delicious acai bowl. Memphis doesn’t exactly have a large acai bowl market, so after I moved I started making my own. So here goes with my recipe for a yummy acai bowl.
I start with Sambazon’s acai frozen acai packets. You can find these at Whole Foods or Sprouts for a decent price. I have never been able to find them in a regular grocery store, but depending on where you live that may be possible.
Next I add a couple handfuls of frozen blueberries and a half of a banana. You can freeze the banana and add it that way if you want to the consistency of the bowl to be a bit thicker. Also add a 1/4 cup of almond milk or Greek yogurt depending on how think you want the bowl to be. Lastly, add a teaspoon of chia seeds.
Once everything has been added, blend together until the texture is consistent and there are no chunks. After everything is blended, pour the mixture into a regular size bowl.
Next is kind of dealers choice with what toppings you want to add. I always add granola, the other half of the banana, blueberries and almond butter. You can really add any type of fruit you want. Coconut flakes and honey also make good additions.
- 1 packet Sambazon’s acai concentrate
- 2 handfuls frozen blueberries (about 1 cup)
- ½ banana
- ¼ cup almond milk or Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp Chia seeds
- Assorted fruit (to put on top of the smoothie bowl)
- ½ cup granola
- 1-2 tbsp. almond butter
I hope you enjoy the deliciousness that is a homemade acai bowl! Until next time, friends… CB
