For food lovers, eating is an experience, a moment to savour. It's not just about filling the belly but also enchanting the senses. The açaï bowl does just that. It's a recipe that delights both the eye and the palate.
What is açaï?
Açaï, the key ingredient in this recipe, is a deep purple berry native to Central and South America. This superfood is filled with antioxidants and heart-friendly fats. It is used to lower blood sugar levels and stimulate the immune system.
When paired with protein-rich yogurt and our fiber-loaded granola, this açaï bowl recipe creates a breakfast that's both satisfying and beneficial for your health.
Let's dive right into our açaï bowl recipe:
- 150g of yogurt + 1 tablespoon of açaï powder
- OR 150 g frozen açaï
- 150g of frozen berries
- 1 Frozen banana
- 1 tablespoon of Peanut butter
- 30g of Granola
- Toppings: Fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and goji berries
- Begin this açaï bowl recipe by blending the yogurt and açaï powder or frozen açaï with frozen berries, frozen banana, and peanut butter until smooth. The banana provides a creamy base, while the açaï and berries bring a splash of colour and a hint of acidity. If you make the version without yogurt and your blender struggles with the frozen fruits, add a dash of water or milk to get it going.
- Pour the smooth berry mixture into a bowl. The vivid purple colour, a result of the açaï and berries, makes this açaï bowl recipe as aesthetically pleasing as it is tasty.
- Next, it's time to unleash your creativity with the toppings! Arrange the strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries on top of the açaï mixture. The assortment of berries not only expands the flavour profile of this açaï bowl recipe but also amplifies its antioxidant content.
- Follow by sprinkling a generous handful of granola on top. Our Turtle Power Granola Nuts & Seeds adds a delightful crunch and fills the bowl with wholesome grains.
- Lastly, scatter some goji berries over the top. These tiny powerhouses are packed with antioxidants and vitamins, adding an extra layer of nutrition to your açaï bowl recipe.
There you go! Your açaï bowl is ready. This stunning and nutrient-packed breakfast is sure to keep you satiated and energized throughout your day.
