I must say that I LOVE acai bowls! I tried it first time when I was in New York and after that I ate it almost everyday when I was in US. You can easily find places to buy acai bowls everywhere in US, but here in Iceland I haven’t found it anywhere. Luckily I found acai powder in the supermarket, I was so happy that I could finally make my own acai bowls! And I’m not gonna lie, it’s quite expensive but it’s so worth it.

You might wonder what Acai is? And it pronounced Ah-sigh-EE!! Acai is a berry that comes from Central and South America. You can buy them in a powder or frozen form. They say it’s a ‘superfood‘ because of it’s antioxidant properties. Specifically the ability to boost immunity, repair and prevent cell damage and improve heart health. The berries have a yummy slightly fruity but rich taste.

Acai bowls are very easy to make, it’s basically like a smoothie but you want that right texture. You want a consistency that is thick enough to be scoopable, so not too loose. Almost like a sorbet. And then you just top it with what you desire.

YOU NEED: 
2 port.

1 banana
2 handful frozen raspberries
1 handful frozen blueberries
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp acai powder
1-2 dl coconut milk or any kind of milk (start with 1 dl and add more if needed)

DO THIS: 

  1. Blend all of the ingredients until thick and smooth
  2. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add your desired toppings.

What I topped my bowl with:
My homemade granola
sliced strawberry and banana
1 tsp peanut butter
coconut flakes
honey

ENJOY! :)
