The BEST Açaí Bowl You'll Ever Taste
Updated: Apr 1
There are many food trends out there that are unwarranted (like food mashups -- ahem, Cronuts), but when it comes to açaí bowls -- which feature the super superfood from Brazil -- the buzz is 100% deserved. The açaí berry has been heralded for an array of health benefits, but its strongest asset is definitely its taste. Açaí is a delicious tropical fruit and when it comes served as a bowl it makes waking up a whole lot easier.
Açaí bowls look like ice cream, almost taste like ice cream, and make you feel good about your breakfast choice. It's what breakfast dreams are made of. An açaí bowl is basically a really thick smoothie that's been topped with oatmeal, fruit or peanut butter, and then you wolf it down with a spoon. After eating a bowl, you will not only feel happily full (for hours) and have satisfied a sweet craving (no need to cave for a donut), you'll have also done something that was good for you. Win win!!
In urban areas, açaí bowls can be found at most local juice or smoothie spots, but for those of you far away from a smoothie spot, you will have to brave the process of making one at home. To be clear: this is not the quickest and easiest of breakfasts (at first). But, it is completely worth the effort. Try it and you'll see!! Here is my FAV açaí recipe!
Who's going to add açaí bowls to their breakfast routine??
