Have you ever had an açaí bowl? They are a pretty big deal down here in San Diego, and truly one of my favorite meals in the summertime when the sun is out and the temperatures are high. It’s cool and refreshing and (bonus) super healthy. While I’m pretty lazy and tend to go out for my açaí bowls, they’re actually super easy to make at home if you think ahead and shop for ingredients when you’re out running errands. Below is the simple starter recipe I shared with Glitter Guide last week, but feel free to experiment with different mix-ins and toppings to create your perfect bowl :)
2 Sambazon Açaí packs (found in the freezer section at Whole Foods or local health food store)
1/2 cup coconut or almond milk
Handful of spinach (optional—though I promise you won’t taste it!)
Toppings: sliced banana, berries, granola and/or shredded coconut
Blend açaí packs, banana and coconut milk (and spinach, if you desire) in a blender until smooth. The mixture will be thick, but add extra milk as needed to ensure everything is completely blended. Split into two bowls and top with sliced banana, granola and coconut.
