Today is the first ever National Açaí Bowl Day! I think this is just the cutest idea ever as I lurve açaí bowls – I became addicted after discovering them at a vegan food truck in Hawaii just before I jumped out of my first plane (which I also lurved!) so have very fond memories.
In celebration, I pulled together my first homemade version of an açaí bowl… but of course I had to put it in a pot, à la my chia seed breakfast pots. Pots are fun because you are reusing something, they are transportable, and they hold just the right amount. This is based on my most favorite smoothie recipe so it’s kinda cheating, but I’m enjoying eating it with a spoon.
Ingredients (two pots)
Soften açai in warm water as per instructions on packet. Add ingredients to blender jug. Blend on high speed to get momentum – you may need to stop and stir as it’s kinda thick. Blend until smooth. Pour or scoop into pots and top with banana, fresh berries, and cacao nibs.
PS. The recipe is also posted on Sambazon’s website! Check it out, along with all of the other great recipes from Sambazon and loyal users. Also, get your açai on and submit your own recipes :)
