2. A Good Morning Bowl
This acai bowl recipe is the perfect wake-up call. It makes the perfect acai bowl base, giving you the freedom to top this acai bowl however you desire. It's fairly comparable to our almond butter acai bowl recipe, featuring the necessary ingredients to ensure you have your daily helping of antioxidants and healthy fats.
This recipe includes:
1 pack of Acai Exotic Acai Pure pack or acai powder
Berries of your choice—strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or all three!
1 frozen banana
2 oz. liquid of your choice: almond milk, fruit juice, etc.
½ cup plain yogurt (optional) - for a creamier texture
Any toppings you enjoy, such as crunchy granola, nuts or seeds, more berries, sliced fruit, etc.
For the perfect Good Morning Bowl base, you'll need a blender to puree your frozen ingredients into a smooth and thick mixture. To bring this bowl to the next level, add your toppings (we recommend fresh fruit and a sprinkle of coconut shavings) and enjoy right away so it doesn’t melt!
3. A Salty (And Surprising) Take on the Acai Bowl
Did you know that one of the original acai bowl recipes actually includes . . . drum roll . . . shrimp or fried fish?
That's right—you can think outside the box when it comes to acai. Its sweetness is the perfect balance to more savory, salty options like this one. In fact, acai is commonly served in dishes with fried fish and cassava (a shrub similar to yuka).
Now, this traditional bowl's preparation varies by region, so we don't have a specific recipe for you. We recommend keeping this recipe on the savory side, forgoing any sugary tendencies as you build it. Consider adding frozen cauliflower to the acai puree to help thicken the base. Then, add your preferred seafood to the top—and don't forget to actually try it!
4. A Tropical Acai Bowl
This acai bowl recipe is on the tropical side, so keep that flavor profile in mind as you prepare this dish!
In a blender, puree frozen mango, banana, and pineapple. Add acai pulp, frozen puree, or powder and pulse it into the mixture. Add cold water—or a favorite fruit juice (preferably one of the base ingredients)—and some lime juice and blend.
As with other acai bowls, the options for toppings are limitless. To keep it tropical-friendly, consider topping with ingredients like coconut flakes, coconut granola, kiwi, banana, other tropical fruits, and/or chia seeds.
5. Another Classic: Bring A Date
High in fiber and antioxidants, people have been farming dates for 7,500 years. There’s good reason too. They’re delicious, healthy, and pair with some of our favorite acai bowl recipes. This one’s a good place to start.
Your dream date (bowl) is waiting! Start with 2 Acai Exotic pure packs, and blend with 3-5 pitted dates, half an avocado, and half a banana. The result will be a nutrient packed, delicious and decadent acai bowl. Top it with chia, flax, granola, and the other half of that banana, and you’ll be in heaven!
6. Acai and Dragonfruit: Another Winning Combination
Finally, don't forget to try your acai with a side of dragonfruit!
Dragonfruit is rich in healthy ingredients like iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and folate. Together with acai, any recipe you make will not only be delicious but nutritious, too. This dragonfruit acai bowl recipe is no exception.
To make the ideal acai and dragonfruit smoothie, blend together an Acai Exotic Acai Pure pack and 1 cup of Acai Exotic frozen dragonfruit chunks. Then top it with a generous portion of nourishing dragonfruit, some fresh banana slices, a heaping of pomegranate, and coconut flakes for sweetness. If you like a little crunch, place a handful of granola right on top and enjoy.
