Easy + Tasty Açaí Bowl

Pretty, easy to make, trendy, tastes good, AND is good for you??? Count me in!

Açaí bowls are the talk of the town these days and there’s no question as to why: they’re Insta-worthy, taste amaze, and can have so many health benefits.  However, these bowls can get real pricey real quick.  I’m all about getting the best bang for your buck (#collegebudget), so I decided to experiment with bowl making myself.  I have perfected my version of the basic açaí bowl, plus I’ve created some fun variations – check em out below!

Basic Bowl Base:

Ingredients

1 frozen banana

1 frozen açaí purée pack (my fav are these from Trader Joe’s)

1/2 cup of milk (I prefer nut milks, my current fav is this almond & coconut blend by Silk)

Instructions:

Throw all ingredients in a blender and blend until combined and smooth (I like the consistency to be on the thicker side, but we’re not all the same so you can adjust the milk amount to play with consistency).

1 frozen banana

1 frozen açaí purée pack (my fav are these from Trader Joe’s)

1/2 cup of milk (I prefer nut milks, my current fav is this almond & coconut blend by Silk)

1 cup/handful of mixed greens (spinach, kale, whatever you prefer; my current fav is this green mix from Trader Joe’s)

1 pinch – 1 teaspoon of turmeric (depends on your tastebud preferences, the more the merrier for me!)

Instructions:

Throw all ingredients in a blender and blend until combined and smooth (I like the consistency to be on the thicker side, but we’re not all the same so you can adjust the milk amount to play with consistency).
