You might remember this green acai bowl recipe that I posted earlier in the year after discovering Sambazon’s frozen acai smoothie packs. Well, since posting, I’ve officially become addicted—not just with the green acai bowl (I eat one practically every morning), but also with Sambazon.
First off, the company is socially and environmentally conscious. It provides jobs for and benefits thousands of local families and works to protect the Amazon rainforest, while bringing the benefits of these Amazonian Superfoods (acai, acerola and guarana) to all of us in the US. Secondly, all (literally, ALL) of their products are delicious and exceptionally good for you. We’re talking USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Ecocert Fair Trade, vegan and gluten-free.
In addition to buying hoards of smoothie packs each week, I’ve recently started drinking their smoothies and juices every time I spot them in Whole Foods. I usually drink them as an in-between-meals snack. There are a ton of different ones to choose from, but I just want to highlight a few of my favorites:
I think Supergreens claims the top spot in my heart. Antioxidants, omegas, fiber, three servings of fruits and veggies—it speaks for itself. Their protein smoothies, Chocolate + Almond + Coconut Milk in particular, make for a great pre- or post-workout drink. And then I just can’t get enough of their original Acai juice. I doesn’t just taste good, it feels good.
Now that I’ve made it clear that I’m absolutely in love with acai, it’s time for a—shocker!—acai bowl recipe.
Berry-Kiwi Acai Bowl
This will make one serving.
- 1 Sambazon Unsweetened Pure Acai Berry Smoothie Pack
- ¼ cup non-sweetened coconut milk
- 1 banana
- 1 kiwi (set aside a few slices)
- ½ cup blueberries
- 1 cup halved strawberries
- ¼ cup granola (I use Whole Foods’ Hemp Plus Granola)
- ½ tbsp hemp seeds
Blend everything together except for the granola. Once thoroughly blended, pour into bowl and mix in granola, saved kiwi slices, and some blueberries and strawberry pieces.
And a big thanks to the wonderful people at Sambazon for the bowl!
