Açaí bowls are all the rage!

This cute girl has been wanting to try açaí bowls for months. She says they are all over Instagram and has been begging me to take her to Bowlology. We finally got to go and it did not disappoint. It was delicious!

If you are like me and have no idea what an açaí bowl is, have no fear! It is a sensually a smoothie parfait with granola and any type of toppings that you like. This little bit of goodness was $10. Being the frugal person that I am, I figured that I could easily make these at home!

I found açaí packet with fruit to make smoothies in the freezer section at Walmart. I loaded my cart with my favorite granola and some fresh fruit. I went home and decided to give it a shot. The result was fantastic!

Once we had the smoothie made, I topped it with sweetened coconut, raspberries, bananas, strawberries, Chia seeds, and cinnamon. I then drizzled a small amount of sugar free maple syrup on top. YUM! 😋

My new favorite recipe is a mango smoothie made with a green juice that I get at Sam’s Club. I then put fresh raspberries and strawberries on top with toasted coconut and granola. It is divine!!

Have you jumped on the açai bowl bandwagon yet? What is your favorite recipe? I would love to hear.

  1. I use a frozen Sambazon organic açaí packet (available at Whole Foods & Publix). I add frozen strawberries, frozen banana and silk coconut milk. I top it with fresh sliced strawberries & bananas, blueberries, blackberries, granola, chocolate covered chia seeds, a drizzle of agave nectar and peanut butter. I like this one so much that I haven’t tried anything else yet! I’ve been making smoothies for years, but this new idea of putting it in a bowl and adding toppings is awesome!

    1. I agree! Why didn’t we think of this sooner? That sounds amazing! I will have to try it.
