Homemade Acai Bowls
We know it’s the coldest day of the year out there for Tulsa, but y’all that isn’t stopping us from enjoying our acai bowls! Teresa loves them so much, she hunts them down in every city she visits! Luckily, you don’t have to be in an exotic or big city to enjoy one yourself, you can make them right in your own kitchen. They are absolutely delicious and a healthy choice for breakfast or a snack. The best part is, they are so easy to whip up. We use whatever fruits we have on hand from bananas and strawberries to mangos and pineapple. If you want to get your veggie for the meal, add in a handful of spinach or kale, and even avocado!
Two packets of frozen acai (run under hot water to break it up into smaller pieces. We’ve found these at Sprouts and Trader Joe’s.)
Splash of almond milk or coconut milk (the more liquid you add, the runnier the texture will be)
1 cup of strawberries
1/4 cup of blueberries
1/4 cup of raspberries
1/4 cup of granola
1 tablespoon of coconut flakes
1 teaspoon of ancient grain blend (Trader Joes)
It is so simple and only four steps.
Blend acai, almond milk, banana and ½ cup of strawberries
Pour puree mixture in a bowl
Garnish with your choice of toppings (let that creative side run wild!)
