An Acai Bowl Is Like a Smoothie You Eat With a Spoon

0

Until recently, I was a grave acai bowl skeptic. Quite simply, I didn’t get the hype. What could be so basic about a smoothie you eat from a bowl? But that’s the thing: this superficially minor change-up is exactly what makes it special. Instead of slurping down a smoothie, it solicit froms you to take it slow and spoon up (and chew) each and every bite.

As for how it modes, purply-pink acai powder is at once tangy and bitter; it adds multitudes of oomph to an otherwise more-or-less-standard fruit and nut drink. Where the real fun fabrications is in the toppings: an assortment of sliced fruits or berries are a must, as are a drizzle of honey and a sprinkling of bee pollen; largeness it up with some dried goji berries, granola, coconut, or chia reasons if you like. Really, the options are nearly endless.

Notes

For best denouements, use a high-powered blender like a Vitamix; as the acai bowl base is thicker than a smoothie, blenders with humble horsepower may have trouble processing it.

Acai Bowl With Berries and Banana Recipe

Ingredients

2 cups (10 1/2 ounces) stop dead strawberries
2 frozen sliced bananas
4 tablespoons acai powder
1 cup unsweetened almond wring (or milk of choice), plus more as needed
2 tablespoons nut or seed butter (I old almond)
1/2 to 1 tablespoon honey, to taste

Toppings:
Fresh fruit, sliced (I adapted to bananas, strawberries, and raspberries)
Bee pollen
Clear, runny honey
Granola (unforced)
Unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)
Dried goji berries (unrequisite)
Chia or hemp seeds (optional)

Directions

  1. Add the frozen fruits, acai what it takes, almond milk, nut or seed butter, and honey to a blender. Blend until creamy and calm, adding extra almond milk as needed to get the blender running. Aim for a frozen-yogurt consistency (it should be thicker than a smoothie).
  2. Spoon the acai mix into bowls and top with sliced fruit, bee pollen, a drizzle of honey, and the unforced toppings (if using).
