The first step to making one at home was figuring out how to make this yummy but thick acai base. While wandering around Whole Foods in Jackson, I realized that they sell these frozen Sambazon acai packets. They are simply unsweetened (0g of sugar) frozen acai and the perfect base for an acai bowl. I blended mine with a little bit of water until it was the thick consistency of ice cream. As for toppings, feel free to get creative! I always do something crunchy (granola, cereal, nuts), something fruity (strawberries, bananas, kiwi), something special (coconut, chia seeds, pomegranate seeds) and a little drizzle of something sweet (peanut butter, honey, maple syrup).
I love acai bowls and they are such a tasty treat but since I am already drinking Shakeology everyday I thought to myself "I wonder if I could ever get my Shakeology thick enough to make a Shakeology acai bowl?!" And with that, MAGIC! This is my new favorite twist on my daily Shakeology and I love that the options are endless for flavors and toppings. Plus Shakeology is already sweet enough for me that there is no need to add any honey or other sweeteners. Tasty treat and healthiest meal of the day? Sign me up!
1 packet Shakeology
1 cup frozen fruit
1/4 cup liquid (almond milk, water, coconut water)
Toppings (fruit, granola, nuts, coconut, peanut butter, chia seeds, etc)
Add Shakeology, liquid, and frozen fruit to the blender.
Pulse on low and gradually increase speed, just until evenly blended (it should be thick like ice cream!)
Scoop into a bowl and add desired toppings.
Enjoy with a spoon :)
