Acai Bowl Recipe

Acai Bowls are the tastiest and most Instagrammable breakfast EVER. This Acai Bowl recipe is filled with berries, bananas, yogurt, and all the toppings your heart desires. You really can’t go wrong. You start with a smoothie type mixture for the base, and then top with fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, nut butters, and more! For the base, I use packets of frozen Acai berry puree. I have seen these at most supermarkets, and I usually get mine at Trader Joes. Acai Bowls originated in Brazil, and they have become extremely popular in the beachside towns of Hawaii and California. I love them because of how beautiful and colorful they are and how energized I feel after I eat them!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Luckily, there are so many yummy breakfast recipes to choose from. Whether you like smoothies, eggs, or pancakes & waffles, there is something for everyone.
