Acai Berry Bowl
When I’ve got time to relax and enjoy my breakfast nothing beats a thick and creamy Acai Berry Bowl. This breakfast option is seriously indulgent, but will definitely leave you feeling refreshed and a great way to use ingredients from the freezer and store cupboard.
- 2 inch bananas large ½cubes frozen
- 200 g unsweetened acai berry pulp frozen, Sambazon
- 100 g mixed berries frozen
- 2 tbsp nut butters of your choice optional
- almond milk a dash if required (to slightly loosen the mixture)
- kiwi peeled and sliced or chopped
- banana sliced
- strawberries sliced
- drizzle of honey maple syrup optional
- nut butter (optional) I recommend Pip & Nut
- handful granola optional
- Prepare acai purée: In a food processor or high-speed blender, add banana, acai berry pulp, frozen fruits of your choice (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or blackberries) Blend on low until larger chunks are broken down, then gradually increase speed, adding a splash of almond milk at a time if required (although if you like your bowls thick don’t add too much liquid) and stopping to scrape down sides of the food processor if needed. When ingredients have blended together and it’s nice and creamy, add nut butter of your choice (optional) blend on high for 15 to 20 seconds more.
- Pour acai purée into a bowl and arrange your desired toppings in stripes of their respective colour to form a rainbow: from left to right, arrange blueberries, kiwi, banana, coconut and strawberries. Sprinkle with granola and drizzle with honey (if using) and a drizzle of nut butter.

LISA’S TIP – Think of a rainbow when topping your acai bowls, the list is endless from kiwi, berries, granola and coconut. A large spoonful of nut butter wouldn’t go a miss either peanut or almond butter is my favourite option. I love how nutritiously dense these bowls are, and I am always left feeling extremely satisfied and full.
