Yummy Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Easy homemade acai smoothie bowl recipe - Sequins & Stripes
I’ve been getting so many requests on my snapchat to share recipes with you and I’m going to try to be better in the new year. I wanted to quickly share my go-to recipe for an easy homemade acai bowl (that I made yesterday morning). I love using acai packs for smoothies because they have a strong berry flavor and it is easy to disguise really healthy things inside (when I really need an extra boost I add spinach, kale, etc!). You can find these acai packs in the freezer section of your grocery store (I buy ours at Whole Foods but I did see that Trader Joe’s just started making their own, too!). They are basically single serving packs and are great additions to smoothies. Here is my recipe for the perfect acai bowl…

What you’ll need (makes 2 servings):

1 frozen acai pack
1 1/2 cups coconut water
1 banana
1-2 scoops of almond butter
1 cup frozen blueberries

Hold the acai pack under warm water and break into pieces before taking out of the package and placing in blender. Add the coconut water, banana, almond butter and blueberries and blend until smooth. Put half of the blended mixture into a bowl and top with your favorite, healthy toppings! I used slivered almonds, strawberries, blueberries, banana, cacao nibs and cinnamon. You can also add chia seeds, goji berries, flax seed, kiwi (my favorite), granola, etc.

Easy, right? I am always so sad when it is gone, ha!

  1. That looks amazing! I wish there was a place in the city (or even suburbs for that matter) that would do ACAI bowls the way they’re done out on the west coast. Those places are ALL OVER Los Angeles. I hope the acai gods bring those places to Chicago 🙂 until then however I’m going to have to try this recipe.

    Yum!

    1. Maria- try Left Coast in Lincoln Park! They make some of the best Acai bowls out there, including LA!! Good luck

  2. My local Costco carries the Acai packs, and your Acai recipe is my go-to for a weekend treat. My husband loves them, too 🙂 We top ours with frozen mixed berries, unsweetened coconut shavings, and a bit of granola!

  3. I’m really curious about these acai bowls, but I guess I don’t understand the difference between them and a smoothie. Is it a different texture or is the fact that you can put more fruit and nuts in there and eat it kind of like cereal? I’m so interested to know.

  4. This looks super delicious! I definitely want to make this for myself, this year I hope to eat healthier too! xo
