Acai Bowl Recipe

My first acai bowl experience goes back to about 10 years ago. While I was vacationing on Oahu, Hawaii, I saw this pretty bowl on a menu at a cafe in Waikiki. I gave it a try and instantly I became a big fan. It was a bit tangy but sweet and very refreshing.

Even after I had moved to Hawaii, for some reason, I didn’t think I can make this delicious thing at home, I kept going to local restaurants that serve good acai bowls. One day I saw Sambazon acai smoothie at Costco. Then I looked up “Acai bowl recipe”, and figured out how to make it. It’s not rocket science. It’s basically a smoothie, but it’s closer to sorbet than a smoothie drink. Since toppings are a necessary¬†ingredient¬†on acai bowls, the smoothie base has to be thick. If it’s too watery, the toppings will sink and become soggy. You want to avoid that. Toppings should look more like the ones at a frozen yogurt place.

Which blender should be used?

Since most ingredients should be frozen for acai bowl, you will need a powerful blender such as Vitamix, Blentec or Ninja to break them down. I have a Ninja and it works.

However, I think Vitamix and Blendtec have more power, and it will make the blending so much easier. If your blender is weaker than 600watts, you might encounter difficulties. In that case, you have to add more liquid, but try to minimize the usage of liquid to keep the smoothie thick.

What kind of toppings is best?

Any fresh fruits will be good. I live in Hawaii, so I use a lot of tropical fruits such as dragon fruits, papaya, mango or apple banana. Also, I put in shredded unsweetened natural coconut. Recently I also started using cacao nibs, because I like its chocolaty taste and crunchiness.

Instructions
  1. Put all frozen ingredients in your blender. Stop blending as often as needed. Frozen ingredients tend to stick on the side. Use a spatula and move them and keep ingredients close to the blades.
  2. Add your favorite toppings and serve immediately in bowl. Here we used fresh apple bananas, dragon fruits, granola, natural coconut flakes and cacao nibs!
