Acai bowls, or smoothie bowls, are the newest rave. Although they’re super healthy, they’re not only for the health nuts.  They’re a low-calorie, delicious snack that gives you lots of necessary vitamins and satisfies your fruit serving for the day! Chelsea Crockett - Acai Bowl Here’s how you can make your own right at home.

There are tons of different bowls you can make from Hawaiian, with lots of tropical fruits, or more of a sweet one with peanut butter and granola!  But for this recipe, I’ll just start with something simple and delicious!  You’ll first need a few ingredients: 1/2 a banana, 1 tbsp of cocoa powder, 1 1/2 tsp of peanut butter, 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries, half cup of almond milk, and 1 3.5oz pack of frozen acai berries or acai berry pulp.

As far as preparation goes, you’ll need to put all of these ingredients in a blender to make an acai puree.  Then add your toppings! I suggest adding sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, granola, and some peanut butter drizzle on top to finish it off.  Then, simply enjoy!

Are you going to try and create one for yourself?  Let me know how yummy yours turns out! 🙂
