While traveling in Brazil we ate Acai and a lot of it. We’d grab it from the local stand for breakfast or buy it from the kids selling it on the hot beach as a nice cold snack – it was so delicious and as it turns out, nutritious.
Acai berries are a great source of antioxidants, fiber and heart-healthy fats. Blended together and topped with fruit, nuts, superfoods & coconut and you have yourself heaven in a bite! Not to mention, a gorgeous Instagram photo.
Here’s how to make your own acai smoothie bowl at home:
Acai Smoothie Bowl Recipe
2 ripe frozen bananas
2 tbsp acai powder (I love Navitas)

To garnish: hemp seeds, chia seeds, granola (I love Sommer House), coconut flakes, berries & anything else you love
1. Blend your banana, acai powder, almond milk, coconut oil, almond butter, dates and chia seeds until smoothie.
2. Pour into a bowl and garnish with your favorite accoutrements.
