My Go-To Acai Smoothie Bowl This Summer (Customizable Recipe)

My Current Go-To Acai Smoothie Bowl (customizable recipe)First off, THANK YOU for all the comments on and shares of yesterday’s post. Any time I publish a more personal blog post, there’s always this oh sh*t moment of second-guessing as I send it out into the interwebs, so I really loved seeing so many of you relate to it in some way.

Anyway, onto a less serious topic, I’m on a serious acai bowl kick. (LOL how’s that for a transition?) Revolution Juice & Thirst Juice Co. both make a good one (hit them up if you’re in Boston!), but more often than not, I’ll just blend up my own at home. I used to always try to sneak some greens into my smoothie bowls, but lately I’ve had an insatiable craving for fruit, fruit and more fruit. Yes it’s a lot of sugar. No I don’t care. Sorry kale, but you’re not invited to this party.

When I make acai bowls, I usually just eyeball the ingredient ratios, so you’ll see the recipe below is really more of a loose framework—customize it however you’d like! My Current Go-To Acai Smoothie Bowl (customizable recipe) 

My Go-To Acai Smoothie Bowl

My Go-To Acai Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 pack frozen acai (I usually buy Sambazon smoothie packs)
  • ½ frozen banana (any time a banana is about to go bad, I cut it into chunks and freeze it, so I always have these on hand)
  • Heaping ½ - ¾ cup fresh fruit (usually mixed berries, but depends on what I have on hand—pineapple is awesome or I’ll use fresh banana)
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk (any nut milk works, too) + more if it’s too thick
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds (or any seed you like)
  • 1 tbsp protein powder (optional—I don’t always add this)
  • For topping:
  • ¼ cup granola
  • Handful berries
  • ½ banana, sliced

Instructions

  1. Put all the main ingredients in a blender until smooth. If too thick, just keep adding a little coconut milk until it reaches the desired consistency.
  2. Add your toppings.

  5. That looks soooo good! I have to admit, I have never been able to find acai in my grocery store, but now I know to go look for the smoothie packs! Thanks, girl!

      I can’t find it in my grocery store either 🙁 I am going to try an organic market this week because I really don’t want to have to order them online and pay for shipping. But I have found Pitaya Plus frozen dragon fruit pieces, which I use in smoothie bowls all the time!

    • It’s tricky to find! Whole Foods definitely has it, but it’s hit-or-miss at other supermarkets

  6. Mmmm this sounds yummy and a lot like my very berry cherry chia pudding on my blog!

  7. Thanks- I have soother bowls on my menu plan for this week and needed a better recipe. Can I ask why the apple cider vinegar?

    Trader Joe’s sells the frozen Acai puree. They come in individual 3.5 oz packets. So convenient!
