green acai bowls
Who said you can only get acai bowls from a fancy restaurant or on a beach somewhere?! You can make these bowls easily from home with frozen acai packets AND even sneak in some greens! Topped with fruit, drizzled with nut butter and packed with spinach. These are the perfect summertime treat!
frozen acai packets, approx 14 oz (400 g) total
1 cup ice
2 handfuls of spinach
plant based milk or water
peanut or almond butter
chia or flax seeds
Run hot water over frozen acai packets for a few seconds...just enough to allow the acai to pop out of the packet. You want to be careful it doesn't melt.
Empty the acai packets into a blender. Add the ice and the spinach.
Begin to blend, using a tamper tool keep the ingredients pushed down.
This is where you may have to add a splash of water or plant milk to keep everything blending. You are looking for a smoothie/ice cream consistency.
Pour bleded acai mix into bowls and decorate with your toppings!
Add sliced fruit, coconut shreds, or any other ingredrient of your choosing. Drizzle with nut butter.
Time to enjoy!
If your acai smoothie is too runny, add more ice. Or, you can pop the blended mixture in the freezer for a few minutes so it hardens a bit.
