It seems there’s only a few places in Melbourne who seem to have their technique down pat when it comes to whipping these creations up (Shout Out to Acai Brothers!).
But of course adulthood has struck again and I find myself budgeting to both pay bills and still save. So breakfast out is not on the cards right now.
I know all too well that people share these feels ✌🏻. So! Want an Acai bowl on a budget ? See below the most simple of recipes that doesn’t skimp on flavour!
My goal here was to cut out those additional sugars from the fruit juices or artificial fruits some cafes serve in these bowls.
All goodness. No nasties. All love.
What You Need.
2 -3 medium sized bananas ( chopped and frozen / chilled )
1-2 packets of frozen Acai; don’t skimp on any imposter-like Acai blends here, I always use the Amazonia Acai freezer packets, cheap but wholesome
1/2 Tbsp. Honey or Agave Nectar or Pure Maple Syrup
A dash of almond milk or coconut water to blend.
What You Do.
Simply place all ingredients into a food processor and blend on high
You should reach an almost “soft ice cream” texture, this is perfect for eating right away!
If you wish to use these bowls for brekky meal prep – simply blend until desired, and pop into the freezer in ziplock bags.
This will help with portion control and allow an easier method to remove the Acai, opposed to scraping it out of a container.
Quite literally the best part of any Acai bowl! You can keep it simple or just pile it on, the choice is yours.
Favourite toppings of mine include;
- Cacao Nibs
- Goji Berries
- Shredded Coconut
- Peanut butter
- Paleo Protein Crunch Mix (packet from Coles)
- Chia Seeds
- Shredded Dates
The world is your oyster on this one and that’s why I love them so much!
Versatile but easy. Freezer friendly and oh so good for you!
