Using canned coconut milk will yield a creamier and richer taste; however, it tends to be wasteful if you don’t make multiple servings, as you can’t easily reseal the can. I have since been using Coconut Milk Beverage and the taste is still great!
This recipe calls for frozen pineapple chunks, but you can substitute with any fruit of your liking. The key is to ensure the fruit is frozen in order to achieve the right consistency.
Feel free to get creative and artsy with the toppings. I hope you enjoy this nutrient packed bowl as much as I do!
Superfood Packed Acai Bowl Recipe
1 Sambazon Acai Frozen Smoothie Packet (Information on where to buy can be found here – I am able to find mine at Whole Foods)
1 Banana (frozen)
1/2 cup Frozen Pineapple Chunks
1/4 cup Coconut Milk
1. At least 2 hours prior freeze your banana by peeling, breaking into chunks, placing them in a freezer bag and setting in the freezer to harden. You will want to ensure you have a ripe banana (as the riper it is, the sweeter it will be.
2. In a high powered blender or food processor (please note that you will be breaking down a lot of frozen items, so you want to ensure you have a blender that can handle it) add the banana, acai smoothie packet (broken into chunks), coconut milk, and frozen pineapple chunks.
3. Blend until a creamy, ice cream-like texture is achieved. You may need to occasionally open up your blender and push the mixture down to ensure it all blends properly.
4. Spoon into a bowl and top with desired toppings. Serve immediately.(Suggested Toppings include: Chia seeds, hemp seeds, granola, fressh fruit, cacao nibs, goji berries, coconut flakes, nuts, agave syrup, etc.)
