In Rincon, PR, there was a small bakery down the street and a 10 dollar acai bowl felt sooo refreshing. Acai berry is a reddish-purple fruit that comes from Central and South America. Some studies show it's richer in antioxidants then cranberries, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. They would serve Acai sorbet, which was an acai smoothie packet blended with frozen fruit( from what I could see), topped with fresh fruit, yogurt, peanut butter, granola, coconut flakes and chia seeds.
I don't make acai bowls everyday, but my boys and I savor every bite when I do. Landon loves the combination of colors and flavor and he always asks for more coconut! I've tried my best to pack in as many nutrients as possible, while also leaving in the good stuff.
1 unsweetened acai packet(Whole Foods)
1 handful of frozen berries
1 handful of fresh spinach
granola( vanilla at Whole Foods)
Blend the first five ingredients. Add more almond milk if blender is stuck. Fill the bowl with acai smoothie.
*this makes enough for a pregnant woman, a hungry husband and a toddler:)
Top acai smoothie with fresh fruit to your liking and other ingredients. In Puerto Rico, they added pineapple, mango and papaya.
