This Raspberry Acai Bowl is a refreshing & delicious breakfast, especially when you add your favorite toppings! This easy breakfast is ready in a few minutes.
Let’s be honest – I’ve become a little bit obsessed with acai bowls. If you follow me on Instagram stories or Snapchat, you may have noticed that I make them all the time. Like, at least a couple times a week. They’ve also crept their way out of breakfast territory and into lunch and dinner territory, too.
This Peanut Butter Acai Bowl is one of my favorites that I make over and over again because hello, I’m peanut butter obsessed. But I’ve made room for a lot of other favorites too – namely, this raspberry acai bowl!
The bright freshness of the raspberries paired with the sweet acai berries makes such a fresh-tasting blend, and the frozen bananas keep things extra sweet and creamy. Besides some milk to help blend it smooth, that’s all you need.
The acai I use comes from the brand Sambazon and comes pre-blended frozen in packets. You can get original or unsweeted – I always get the unsweetened version. I’ve been able to find it at most grocery stores around me, including Vons and Whole Foods. Before I toss it into the blender, I like to break up the frozen acai a bit so it blends smoothly and completely.
For the toppings on this bowl, I went chocolatey. Along with a bunch of frozen raspberries, I added dark chocolate chunks, shredded coconut, and chocolate hazelnut spread.
If you choose to go the chocolate hazelnut spread route too, give it a drizzle instead of doing what I did. It froze into a strip of chocolate hazelnut spread. Delicious, but not what I had in mind. A drizzle of almond butter would also be fabulous on this acai bowl!
Of course, the beauty of an acai bowl is it’s flexibility. Replace the raspberries with strawberries, blueberries, or really whatever frozen fruit you’d like, or a combo of a bunch of different fruits.
Not into chocolate in the morning? Use your favorite fruits/nuts/seeds/nut butters as your toppings – coconut, cashew butter + peaches is another combo I did with this raspberry acai bowl that was pretty outstanding. This acai bowl is just waiting for your delicious personal touch! Enjoy ;)
