Acai Bowl Lower-Calorie

 

Raise your hand if you’re obsessed with acai bowls. They are light, refreshing, and the perfect meal replacement when you’re looking for something quick and easy to eat. Acai fruit grows on the acai palm tree and it looks similar to a grape. They are native to Brazilian rainforests. The shelf like of an acai berry is so short which is why you never find them fresh in stores, but frozen instead.

 

Acai bowls are made from the frozen acai puree. My favorite acai packs come from Costco. They are delicious and easy to make. When you blend them with a liquid, such as juice or milk, and other fruits it turns into the consistency of a smoothie. The goal is to get a thicker consistency so you can eat it with a spoon in a bowl. If the consistency is a little too thin you can add ice to thicken it up a bit.

The blended acai can also be drank as a smoothie with a thick straw. They are equally as delicious and also a great option if you are taking it to go. If you choose to eat your blended acai as a bowl there are so many great toppings that you can add to make them even more awesome.

 

My favorite way to top my bowl is with sliced bananas and strawberries, then adding some granola and drizzling the top with honey. There are endless possibilities for topping your smoothie bowl. Popular toppings include coconut flakes, almonds, cashews, cacao nibs, blueberries, raspberries, chia seeds, flax seeds, plus much more.
