I recently stumbled across something that is my new healthy/clean eating obsession: the Acai Bowl. It sounds exotic and fancy, yes? Really it’s just a smoothie in a bowl, but with a texture like ice cream. The Acai Bowl has become a trendy food item that is found at juice bars in big cities like LA and NYC. It’s a favorite of people to fuel up after a ride at the local SoulCycle or Hot Yoga class. I’m not one to follow trends, especially a foody trend (it’s even weird to think of a food item as trendy to me), but I had to try the Acai Bowl. I’m in love!
Not only is it delicious but it’s super easy to make. Here is how I made mine. In a blender combine the following:
- 2 Packs of Sambazon Acai Smoothie Packs
- 1/2 of a frozen banana
- 1 Tablespoon of your favorite nut butter
- 1/2 – 1 Cup of Almond Milk
You want it thick like an ice cream texture. Spoon into a bowl and top with your favorite toppings. I added fresh banana, walnuts, fresh blueberries, more peanut butter and some ground flax. Grab a spoon and dig in. It was so delicious and more satisfying than just drinking a smoothie, plus it’s packed with super foods. I like that you can add different fresh fruits, nuts, etc to the bowl, which you cant do with a regular smoothie.
