Homemade Acai Bowls

homemade acai bowls

Acai bowls are one of my favorite breakfast meals. Finding them in Atlanta however isn’t the easiest. I’ve tried numerous recipes and tweaked them to create my own that I’ve been using for the past year. It’s simple, quick and easily customizable. The recipe on the back of the Sambazon package calls for 2 acai packets, but each package only comes with 4 individual packets and we’d be flying through them if we  followed that. Top with fresh fruit, granola, honey, unsweetened coconut and enjoy!

Homemade Acai Bowls

1 un-sweetened acai packet, frozen
3/4-1 cup almond milk (adjust based on your consistency preference)
3/4 c frozen fruit ( I use the frozen mixed berries from Trader Joe’s – love the dark cherries!)
almond butter
raw honey
fresh fruit

Run frozen acai packet under warm water for 5-10 seconds. Place in blender with frozen fruit and almond milk. Blend until smooth and serve in bowl. Top with sliced fresh fruit, almond butter, granola and a drizzle of honey.

    I love acai bowls! Fourtunatly they do have a lot to choose from where I live and work as of recently. However this at home approach looks just (if not more) delicious!

    This looks delicious!! I’ve never made one and home, but it seems quite easy! This could be a silly question, but where do you buy acai packets?

    Thanks for sharing this! I am beyond obsessed with acai bowls, but my fave place in Wrightsville Beach is a little pricey + not the most convenient for my everyday schedule. I’ve made a kind of sort of version of this but can’t wait to try this one!
