Homemade Açaí Bowl

August 21, 2013

If there is one food item you can be sure to find in restaurants in San Diego, it’s açaí bowls. For those of you who haven’t heard of them, they’re basically a thick smoothie (made from açaí puree), topped with granola, fruit and usually coconut.

There is really nothing quite as refreshing and nourishing for breakfast—plus, I’ve been craving them like crazy lately—so of course I knew I needed to try making it at home! Below is the recipe I used to make the bowl shown above—which is already a breakfast favorite in the Borton household.

Homemade Açaí Bowl
Serves 2

2 Sambazon Organic Unsweetened Açaí packs
1 banana
1/2 cup coconut milk
Handful of spinach (optional)
Sliced banana, granola and coconut for toppings

Blend açaí packs, banana and coconut milk (and optional spinach) in a blender until smooth (the mixture will be thick, but add extra milk as needed to make sure it’s all blended smoothly). Split into two bowls and top with banana, granola and coconut.

Have you ever tried an açaí bowl? Would you make it at home?

P.S. Two other smoothie and granola bowl ideas!
