Acai Bowls have become an increasingly popular food trend for breakfast and lunch. Acai berries are fruit from acai palm trees. These purple berries are packed with nutrients including antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids. They offer a number of health benefits including a healthy immune system, increased metabolism and energy levels and healthy hair, skin and nails.
Did you know you can make your own at home? It’s easy!
For a classic acai bowl, blend frozen acai puree with banana, frozen strawberries and blueberries and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Pour into a bowl and top with toppings of your choice. Granola, berries, coconut flakes, chia seeds, pomegranate seeds, banana, pineapple, mango and kiwi are just a few options!
