Tropical Acai Bowl2016-03-15
It almost never fails that I make an acai bowl at least one day out of the weekend. It has become such a regular occurrence that I often joke about how I need to create an Instagram account solely dedicated to them. What can I say? When I get hooked on something, it sticks around for a longwhile.
Ingredients for Tropical Acai Bowl
For the Acai Bowl:
2 100g unsweetened acai berry superfruit packs
1/2 cup Blue Diamond Unsweetened Almond Coconut Milk
1/2 medium very ripe frozen banana
1/4 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1/4 cup frozen cantaloupe chunks
honey or maple syrup, optional if you like a sweeter bowl
fresh pineapple, cantaloupe, and banana slices
fresh shredded coconut
granola or your favorite cereal
Directions for Tropical Acai Bowl
1. Remove acai berry superfruit packs from the freezer approximately 30 minutes before making the bowl. Alternatively, you can run the packs under warm water until slightly thawed enough to break into chunks.
2. Place milk, contents of superfruit packs, frozen banana, frozen pineapple chunks, and frozen cantaloupe into a high powdered blender. If using sweetener, add this now.
3. Blend for approximately 30 to 60 seconds, or until smooth. It should be thicker than a smoothie, but not quite as thick as sorbet.
4. Pour the acai blend into a bowl. Top with your favorite tropical toppings, like fresh pineapple, cantaloupe, banana slices, shredded coconut, and granola or cereal. Mango and almond butter would also be great additions!
