Peanut Butter Acai Bowl
This Peanut Butter Acai Bowl is the perfect creamy, healthy, and peanut buttery breakfast! The recipe makes one thick smoothie bowl, best topped with fresh fruit, granola, and peanut butter.
I’ve gotten pretty crazy obsessed with acai bowls and all sorts of delicious smoothie bowls since I discovered I could make them at home in my Vitamix. They’re the perfect breakfast or mid-day snack, especially in the summertime when you need something to help cool you off.
At my place in Seattle, there was an acai bowl place on my street and they made the best peanut butter acai bowl. I would get it all the time. But why spend $12 when I can make it just as good at home…but even better because I can add all of my favorite toppings?!
This recipe definitely satisfies my cravings for the peanut butter açaí bowl I would get from my favorite spot. Just talking about it makes me desperately want to go make one! Good thing I have all the ingredients ;)
But first! I need to tell YOU all about it so you can go make one too. It’s really super simple. You’re making a smoothie, but with less liquid, so it turns out thick enough to eat with a spoon. Add toppings, and you have the next best thing to ice cream for breakfast.
Where do I buy açaí?
I buy the frozen acai unsweetened superfruit pack from Sambazon. You can find it in the frozen section of the grocery store, near the frozen fruit. Grab the frozen berries too, while you’re there! You can also find it at Trader Joe’s.
What’s in an açaí bowl?
The smoothie consists of frozen banana, which makes the bowl super creamy. It also has frozen strawberries, frozen blueberries, an acai packet, a big spoonful of peanut butter, and a little milk!
If peanut butter isn’t your thing, feel free to sub in almond butter, sunflower seed butter, cashew butter, or whatever your nut butter of choice is.
Once it’s all smooth and creamy, pour your blend into a bowl and add your toppings. I added fresh blueberries, strawberries, sliced bananas, granola, coconut flakes, and of course, some more peanut butter. Go crazy with whatever you have on hand!
This Peanut Butter Acai Bowl is one of my absolute favorite smoothie bowl recipes, and I hope it’ll become a favorite of yours as well! Enjoy :)

I’ve never tried an acai bowl before, but I do love smoothie bowls! This peanut butter version sounds SO good, Rachel! It sounds like you nailed this copy cat recipe. Love it!
I’ve seen your acai bowls on snapchat and I’m always wishing I had one! I’m going to look for some acai because this needs to happen in my life soon!
Your smoothie bowls are SO pretty! I love the looks of this one, all those flavors sound just perfect together :)
Why have I never put peanut butter in an acai bowl before??? This sounds just perfect!
Acai bowls are literally HEAVEN in a bowl! Yay for peanut butter! It make the acai bowl that much better! YUM!

This is so pretty and I love the addition of the peanut butter! I’m having so much fun seeing the photos of your trip on IG too!
So beautiful & filling looking. Must be incredibly satisfying with all that protein & fruit. Can’t wait to try it.

I’m sure she’d love and appreciate it! Hope you enjoy your bowl this morning, Cassidy – this is one of my favorite breakfasts!

Thanks for sharing your blog post, I’ve never tried peanut butter acai bowl till i tried and was amazing
PS: I’m recommending this to anyone next to me on my simple blog and Facebook
Thanks for understanding and for sharing
Really great smoothie bowl recipe. Looks delish. Just pinned it. Just curious what is the acai packets brand you like to use ?
Hi Anna – I like using Sambazon unsweetened acai. Trader Joe’s also has great unsweetened acai packets!
Thanks for sharing this great breakfast recipe. Really it’s so simple. I just love bananas and berries.I will try this asap.
I hope you love it Donna!!
I absolutely love these bowls and make them all the time
Thank you so much for the recipe! I can’t get it to blend with 1/4 cup milk -. I have to use about 3/4! Other than that I make it exactly as listed and it’s delicious!!
Hi Lindsay – I like it SUPER thick so I use minimal almond milk :) the tamper helps a lot, but using more obviously also works. Glad you’re loving it!!
Any pointers on how to drizzle the peanut butter? Do you add water or milk? I am trying to replicate what they do in smoothies at Playa Bowls. Thanks!
Hi Kerry, I use brands of peanut butter that are naturally pretty dripping, like Spread the Love and Crazy Richard’s. However, you can always add some melted coconut oil to make it extra drizzly!
This is such an amazing recipe; it tastes just like the yummy bowls we get a local juice shop in Boise area.
I like to buy the frozen açaí packets from Trader Joe’s. We too our bowls with granola, fresh strawberries and banana. Sprinkle some mini chocolate chips and a drizzle of honey. So good.
I also make these in batches and freeze them for eating later as lunch. Thaws perfectly and tastes the same.
Sounds delicious, Mamalala! So glad you’re loving it, and thanks for the freezer tip!
My favorite homemade açaí bowl recipe!! Make this all the time and my husband and kids love it too. So good and easy to make.
My fave too!! So glad you’re loving this one :)
