Making an Acai Bowl at Home

by Andrea Moody

Many food trends turn out to be more bark than bite, but when it comes to acai (that super food from Brazil), the buzz is 100 percent deserved. The Acai berry has been heralded for an array of health benefits, but perhaps its strongest asset is that it also tastes great! Acai bowls are a delicious and healthy way to start the day. There are many variations, but here’s one of my favorite recipes that’s easy to prepare.

You will need:

  • Something to blend with. If you have a Yonana machine it will do the trick nicely, if not, you can use your blender, Ninja or Bullet etc.
  • Zambazon Acai Packets (can be found at Publix in frozen foods)
  • Sliced almonds
  • Shredded coconut
  • Frozen Blueberries
  • Frozen Banana Slices
  • Protein Powder (I use Ph50 Greens vanilla)

Reserve some acai berries, blueberries, almonds and coconut to top the bowl at the end. Blend ingredients until smooth and pour in a bowl.
