When Acai bowls hit the scene a year or so ago, I knew I had to give one a go! The perfect healthy morning treat, they are so easy to make and can be switched up to suit you.
This was my first attempt at an Acai bowl or smoothie bowl – not sure if there’s a difference?!
Acai Bowl recipe
All I used was:
- One banana (half in the smoothie, half for topping)
- Couple of handfuls of frozen berries
- Couple of spoonfuls of natural yoghurt
- Handful of granola for topping.
The best thing about these bowls is you can literally get whatever you want and just chuck it in the blender, and you’re good to go. This tasted delicious and was so refreshing, I can see it being the perfect summer snack!
For this recipe, you don’t necessarily need to use frozen fruit but I’d definitely recommend it, it helps make the smoothie extra thick and filling, and a lot more refreshing too.
At the moment I’m loving strawberry and banana as my main fruits. Next time I might try some more exotic flavours like pineapple or mango. I’d also love to add some oats to the mix to change up the texture as well – this is something I do with smoothies quite often.
I opted for some granola as the topping – it’s nice to have something with a bit of crunch, but you can choose whatever you like. Perhaps you want to bake your own granola or add some seeds. Better yet, just chop up your leftover fruit and make it look pretty!
Have you ever tried these? What are your favourite flavours and toppings?
