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

Acai Bowls


  • 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


Toppings (optional)

  • Gluten-free granola (I love the Kind flavors!)
  • Honey
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Banana
  • 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.
