Almond Blueberry Acai Bowl Recipe
Have you ever had an amazing acai bowl at a cool smoothie bowl place and wondered how you can make it at home? Well this recipe for an almond blueberry acai bowl will blow your mind. The recipe is by my food editor and it is AMAZING!
Before I get into the recipe, I wanted to talk about acai. Acai is a berry that has some amazing benefits. It is an antioxidant, high in fiber and high in healthy fats. Acai powder can be pricey, although the frozen acai pouches by Sambazon are not cheap either. I came across these pouches at Healthy Planet in Brampton and they were 20% off! That’s the best price I’ve seen here. Sometimes Costco has it in stock for a great price as well. Okay, on to the recipe!
Ingredients – almond blueberry acai bowl
1/2 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
1 pack of frozen unsweetened acai (100g)
1 frozen banana
2 tbsp almond butter
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 tbsp + 1 tsp maple syrup
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
Directions – almond blueberry acai bowl
Place all ingredients, in the order listed, into a high speed blender (or the Vitamix) and blend on high until smooth. You may need to stop and scrape to ease the blending. Since this is an acai bowl, the mixture should be quite thick, else you’ll just have an acai soup.
Pour the acai into a bowl and garnish with desired toppings.
Suggestions: fresh berries, granola, almonds, sliced banana, chia seeds and shredded coconut.
