It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of a good Acai Bowl. If you follow me on Instagram (@tanyafosterfilm) you will see that I make a habit of stopping by Nekter Juice Bar to get one of these delicious treats. I asked my dear friend Alicia Wood of The Lush List to figure out the trick to making one at home. Today, I am sharing her recipe with you.
Make one and try it. You’ll be hooked just like me. xoxo- Tanya
Surely you’ve had one of these tasty bowls. If not, you need to try one! Acai berries are primarily grown in Brazil’s Amazon rain forest. They are a true superfood packed with antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids. They are said to boost the immune system and increase energy levels. Who doesn’t need that in the am!?!?
1 packet of Acai puree (Sambazon Acai Berry frozen puree packets) ½ c frozen pineapple
½ c frozen mango
½ c fresh blueberries
½ c coconut water
Prepare all of your toppings.
Run acai packet under warm water for 5 seconds and break into pieces.
Cut open packet and place in a blender or Vitamix.
Add frozen and fresh fruit and pulse to break up a bit.
Add coconut water a bit at a time and blend.
Mixture should be thick not thin or runny.
Spoon into a bowl and top with your favorite fruits, seeds and granola.
For extra protein, I add a scoop of Amazing Greens to the mix and a tad more coconut water. With the heat still upon us, an Acai Bowl is a great way to start the day.
