Frozen berries are the base to this acai bowl and also are the key to making a smoothie bowl thicker.
This acai bowl is made of frozen fruits, berries, milk, and various toppings of your choice.
Milk is in this acai bowl to move things along and to create the consistency of a smoothie. Almond milk, oat milk, and coconut milk are all great options to use here!
But first, what is an acai bowl?An acai bowl starts with your acai base. Acai is a berry which comes from the acai palm tree – native to Central and South America. The acai bowl originates from Brazil. You blend the acai fruit into a puree and serve in a bowl. The result? A cold, creamy delicious bowl of goodness that has no limits. This dark purple berry can be put in many healthy recipes and makes some thick smoothie bowls, just like this one. A good smoothie bowl is my favorite way to enjoy acai, fresh berries, some tasty toppings, and of course it makes the best breakfast ever. There’s a great balance of protein, vitamin C, and nutrients. [block_content]
The Base In This Acai Bowl RecipeNow, you could probably leave the base at just an acai puree. But if you want to take this bowl up a notch, let me show you how. I combine other goodies with this superfood. So what goes in the base? Frozen banana. I find bananas are almost a necessity in any smoothie base. Bananas add creaminess, sweetness, and balance the flavors out perfectly! Berries. Blitzing that acai with berries of your choice means more flavor and more antioxidants! I love using blueberries and strawberries. Plus, they add in that beautiful color you see! Milk of your choice. Almond milk and oat milk work wonderfully here! Your acai concoction has been dished out. Now comes the fun! You get to choose your choice of toppings! Granola, bananas, frozen berries, and chia seeds are my favorite acai bowl toppings. Enjoy this powerhouse of fiber and antioxidants in the comfort of your home for a fraction of the cost!
