Guys, I can’t stop making these Acai bowls. We’ve been making them for breakfast nonstop, but I have to stop myself from making them at night as a dessert. They’re that good!
I remember I used to love visiting California and going straight to get an Acai bowl. I never even thought about trying to make one myself – I just though of it as something I could only get in California. Now there are Acai bowls everywhere, but thanks to Sambazon it’s SO easy to make your own, no matter where you live.
Acai is a little purple berry from the Amazon packed with wild amounts of nutrition. It’s basically a superfood – for centuries cultures of people have lived off the naturally perfect combo of antioxidants, healthy omegas, and super low sugars. A bit about Sambazon – they harvest their Acai directly from the Amazon, and use all organic ingredients. Their company also does a lot of good, focusing on helping the rain forest and sustainability. Anyways, you can now buy these amazing little individual packets of frozen Acai at Costco, and they make making a smoothie or bowl SO easy!
Here’s the recipe I’ve settled on. It’s totally flexible, but this combination is
- 1 Sambazon Acai Packet
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup frozen organic berries
- 1 cup spinach (I like to freeze mine so it stays good for longer)
- 1/2 cup kale (I also like to freeze this!)
- 1 tablespoon almond butter or peanut butter
- 1 tablesoon flax seed
- 1 tablespoon chia seed
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- Gluten-free granola (I love the Kind flavors!)
- Flaked coconut
Put all ingredients in a blender (I LOVE our Vitamix!) and blend throughly. Be patient – it’s going to take a minute as it’s a pretty thick consistency, but it will be worth it ;).
Once all ingredients are blended, pour into a bowl and top with desired toppings.
It’s SO healthy, SO good, and SO easy! Try it and you’ll have a new (healthy) addiction.
