Here is the official Classic Acai Bowl recipe, which if you’ve never tried it, is really like a smoothie in a bowl!
As many times as I’ve bought the Sambazon Acai Smoothie packs…I’ve always just made smoothies with them, with my favorite being my Acai Berry and Banana Immunity Smoothie.
Oh, and I made some really good Acai Berry and Banana Mini Cheesecakes too!
But this is the first time I’ve actually had a smoothie in a bowl, and I really liked it.
It’s very simple to make, and you make it in a Vitamix, just like a regular smoothie.
But the next step is the fun part…choosing which toppings to use! The varieties are endless.
Today, I wanted to share the Classic Acai Bowl, but I am going to be a acai bowl making fool because I already have lots of other ideas I’ll be sharing later like this Blueberry Acai Protein Smoothie Bowl!
