If you have taken a look at my Instagram it is clear to see that I am an acai bowl and smoothie bowl lover through and through. I eat one or the other each and every week, sometimes everyday! This is a simple acai bowl recipe that is easy to make with minimal ingredients. 

This recipe is also a budget friendly option compared to purchasing an acai bowl from a smoothie shop. They are so easy to make it is definitely worth learning. 

My son gobbles these up and they are even picky eater approved. My picky eater Alina takes hers straight up with granola only. Liam on the other hand will eat pretty much whatever I put on top. 

They are delectably thick and creamy. As well as refreshing and sweet. It’s the perfect breakfast or snack. I hope you love this recipe as much as my family does! 

Ingredient Notes:

  • Acai Blend – I use Sambazon and this is really the most popular brand I see in stores. You can use whatever frozen Acai Blend you can find. 
  • Frozen Banana – This adds flavor and creaminess to your bowl. I generally peel, break in half and freeze very ripe bananas in a freezer safe bag. I always have them on hand. 
  • Coconut Water – I use pure coconut water meaning it has no added sugar or flavoring. 

How To Make:

Break your frozen acai in half and add it to your blender with your frozen banana. Pulse your blender on low breaking apart your ingredients. Scrape down the sides and slowly add your coconut water as needed.

I find that the lowest setting on the blender helps me to achieve a smooth and creamy texture.

Depending on your blender you may need the full amount of coconut water or only a splash. With my Vitamix a splash works perfect for me.

Spread into your bowl and top with your favorite toppings. Some of my favorite things are banana, granola and berries.

Tips For Success:

  • Use a high powered blender or food processor. This recipe will work with either a blender or food processor. However, it will be difficult if it is not of good quality to achieve a thick and creamy texture. If you do not have a high powered blender you may need to use all of the coconut water.
  • Be patient. To achieve the right consistency patience is key. You will need to pulse and scrape down the sides as needed. I find a lower setting works best and turning my blender on high doesn’t speed up the process. 
  • Use ripe bananas. The flavor and sweetness will vary depending on the ripeness of your frozen bananas. I always have very ripe frozen bananas on hand. I simply take ripe spotty bananas break them in half and place them in a freezer safe bag. 
  • Get creative with your toppings. I am constantly changing up my toppings for acai bowls. Really any fruit, granola and even nut butter works well.
