The great thing about this Acai bowl recipe is that you can adjust the recipe to your liking. Add the fruits that you like or your kids like. Or add the fruits that are in season at your local market. Or you can add fruits that you happen to have on hand. You can create an Acai bowl stand for family or guests to select from and help themselves with toppings.
Once you prepare the base mix, you can pour the fruits, seeds, or toppings to the mix that you want. The base mix can even be frozen and stored in the freezer for another day.

Ingredients for Acai Bowl Recipe:
This recipe should make 3 to 4 portions.
1 medium to large ripe banana
1/2 cup Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup Strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1/3 cup Pineapple chunks (fresh or frozen)
1/3 cup Mango chunks (fresh or frozen)
(1) 3.5oz frozen Sambazon Acai Berry Guarana (or your favorite frozen Acai Berry puree)
1/4 cup Organic Unsweetened Almond Vanilla
Your Choice of Toppings: (Get creative!)
Raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
Raw Sunflower seeds
Shaved Dried Coconut
Sliced fresh banana
Fresh blueberries, strawberries
1 Tbsp of Almond Butter
1 tsp Organic Honey
Add Fruit to Blender
Prepare the following in a blender.
Cut one banana into large chunks. Add fresh or frozen pineapple chunks – about 1/3 cup.
Add blueberries and strawberries to fruit mixture. You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries and strawberries. About 1/2 cup each.
Next, add mangos to the fruit mixture. Use about 1/3 cup.
Cut open one Sambazon Acai Berry Guarana frozen package (3.5 ounce). Drop into blender with the other fruits. This Acai bowl base recipe is easy to make and can freeze until you are ready to eat. Just remove from the freezer 1-2 hours to defrost.
Tip – Break frozen Acai Berry into smaller pieces for easier blending. It will help blend with the other ingredients more easily and not tax your blender.
Add Some Almond Non-Dairy Beverage Vanilla to Blender
Pour Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk into the blender with the other ingredients. Almond Milk is a good alternative to use in place of dairy products. We use about 1/4 cup of Almond Non-Dairy Beverage Vanilla.
Mix Acai Bowl Recipe Base in the Blender
Mix ingredients in blender for 2 minutes on medium. Once these ingredients are in the blender, you are ready to mix. Mix these ingredients thoroughly and until well blended.
Pour Acai Bowl Recipe into 3 or 4 individual serving bowls depending on desired portion size. The Acai base mix can be either frozen in individual bowls or be served with toppings. If your Acai base mix is to be frozen be sure to wrap the bowl securely to avoid any drying out.
Select Your Acai Bowl Toppings
You are almost done. Just need to add your favorite toppings, fruit, a little Almond Butter, and Honey.
After Acai and fruits are blended, toppings are ready to be added. Some of the toppings we typically use are granola, seeds, and nuts. Seeds such as pumpkin seeds or pepitas, chia seed, and sunflower seeds are healthy and high in fiber. You can also add hemp hearts, sliced almonds, or shaved coconut. Or maybe you have other toppings that you like to use.
Remember, you can adjust this Acai bowl recipe to include your favorite fruits and toppings.
