In North America, acai can be purchased in frozen acai pulp packets or in a freeze-dried powder form — both of which can be found in most grocery stores. From here, the frozen acai packets or powdered acai can easily be turned into a delicious acai bowl, acai smoothie, or even acai popsicles for the perfect summer treat!
There are 3 key factors to a delectable acai bowl:
1. Ratio between toppings versus liquid acai
“OMG, look how pretty it is!” is a common reaction to almost every acai bowl I’ve eaten.
- 1 cut-up frozen banana
- 1 cup of frozen mango
- ½ cup of coconut water
- 1 frozen acai packet
- In a high-speed blender, first add in cut-up chunks of frozen bananas, and then add in frozen mango, coconut water, and one acai packet.
- Blend on top speed until there are no visible fruit chunks and it reaches a smooth consistency.
- Poor into a bowl and go crazy with toppings!
