A simple tutorial on how to make superfood-packed homemade acai bowls for breakfast.
This has become an almost weekly occurrence in my What I Ate Wednesday posts. That is because I have made a habit out of eating acai bowls every. single. Saturday morning for the past couple of months.
While they may have a fancy name that I can only correctly pronounce about 30 percent of the time, there is no fanciness involved when it comes to making these. Four necessary ingredients + an endless amount of toppings = one healthy, superfood breakfast in five minutes flat. Below you will find a step-by-step tutorial on how to make acai bowls at home.
How to Make a Homemade Acai Bowl
Makes 1 bowl
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 Sambazon unsweetened acai smoothie packs, thawed for 30 minutes or run under hot water for a few seconds
1/2 large frozen ripe banana
1 tsp honey or agave nectar (vegan if using agave nectar)
2/3 cup frozen mixed berries*
1/2 cup granola or cereal*
*You can great creative with your toppings. These are simply my go-tos. I often see people topping their bowls with fresh banana slices, shredded coconut, nuts, and/or seeds.
1. Place almond milk, acai smoothie packs, banana, and honey or agave nectar into high-powered blender.
2. Blend until well-combined and all chunks have disappeared. The texture will be similar to a very thick smoothie.
3. Poor acai mixture into bowl and top with desired toppings. I always select frozen mixed berries and granola for mine.
