This recipe for a Classic Acai Bowl has only three ingredients and is so delicious! You’re missing out if you haven’t jumped on this easy breakfast trend.
Are you on the acai bowl bandwagon? I’ve been acai bowl obsessed for a loooong time now – they’ve been a favorite of mine since I first discovered the Sambazon acai bowl cafe in Cardiff way back in high school. Now, you can find them all over in San Diego, but there were still no places near me to get them in Washington, so they became a visiting home treat.
When I went to Kauai last month, my sister had already scouted out a favorite acai place by the time I had gotten there. I must say, she chose well – they were soooo delicious! Acai is a big deal in Hawaii and you can find roadside stands offering an assortment of smoothies, fresh produce, and acai bowls pretty much everywhere.
My delicious Hawaii acai sparked a craving, and when I got back to Seattle, I wished as I always do that there were acai places up here. I looked it up and lo and behold, one had opened on my street a few months back. Needless to say, Fit Bar has fulfilling all of my acai needs these past month…but they’ve also been getting a lot of my $$$!
So, I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands and make acai bowls at home, fully customizable, with all the flavors and toppings I want. I can’t believe I waited so long to make them myself! It took maybe three minutes and only used three ingredients. Seriously, so easy.
You’ll have to scout out some frozen unsweetened acai blend packets. Mine were in 100g packets, which is the perfect amount to make one bowl. A frozen banana adds natural sweetness and makes the mixture super creamy. Finally, your milk or yogurt of choice makes the mixture super creamy. I used the vanilla flavor of Silk Dairy Free in this bowl and you could definitely taste the vanilla, which I really enjoyed.
Just add the three ingredients to a blender and blend away until you have a thick and creamy acai blend! Pour it into a bowl, top with any and all the toppings you want, and go to town. I love berries, granola, and coconut on my acai bowls, and peanut butter or almond butter is usually a welcome addition too :) this breakfast treat is seriously guilt free but will definitely leave you feeling refreshed and satisfied. Enjoy!
