Tropical Bliss Açai Bowl

Sweet, vibrant, and full of flavor! This makes an AWESOME breakfast!

Yeah, I admit it. This became trendy and I immediately wanted on the boat. I don’t do that very often! I’ve avoided goji berries and cauliflower pizza crusts and many other things simply because I find it annoying that there’s such a craze around them. But when I saw how popular açai bowls were becoming I couldn’t help it! They just look too enticing, so I had to try it myself.

Sweet, vibrant, and full of flavor! This makes an AWESOME breakfast!

For those who might be wondering what the deal is with açai, it’s a fruit that is full of antioxidants and omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids. It’s similar in nutritional profile to other popular berries, but has recently caught on like wildfire in the US (and I’m guessing other places in the West). It’s also delicious and a beautiful color!

    I had one of these at a natural foods place in Myrtle Beach and it was so good. Never thought to make it at home though. Maybe I need to.

    I am a massive fan of acai bowls and they are all the rage here in Australia. Definitely need to make one myself from scratch though, thanks for the awesome recipe!

    You’re right this DOES look gorgeous! I have tried many different kinds of “power” bowls but never the acai. Obviously, I have been missing out! Can’t wait to give this a try!
