Ingredients

Berry Bowl:

  • 1/2 of a banana
  • 1 100- g 3.5-oz pack frozen unsweetened acai berry pulp
  • 1 cup mixed frozen berries
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk I like coconut or cashew best, but almond is the classic milk used

Optional Berry Bowl Add-ins:

  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 1 TBS nut butter or 2 TBS nuts for good fat if you need more calories to burn slowly
  • 1 1/2 tsp flax oil for super Omega 3 boost!

Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup raspberries
  • 1/4 cup strawberries or goji berries for super antioxidant power!
  • 1/2 cup pineapple
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free granola
  • 3 TBS shredded coconut optional
  • Or use any fruit you like!

Instructions

  • Before opening your acai pack, run it under water for 5 seconds to thaw and break the frozen pulp into smaller pieces
  • In a high powered blender, add banana, acai pulp, frozen berries and non-dairy milk. (I find if I add ingredients in that order they blend better)
  • Blend on low until larger chunks are broken down, then gradually increase speed to high once ingredients have come together. If your blender needs help mixing the ingredients, add a small splash of milk to help.
  • Pour into a bowl and quickly add your desired toppings. Your Acai Bowl will melt quickly, especially in summer!
