Açai Berry Bowl

Updated: Jan 24, 2023

Açai bowls are all the rage right now, and with good reason! Açai berries are extremely nutritionally dense, loaded with anti-oxidants and have cancer fighting properties.

Fresh açai berries have a short shelf life and aren’t available outside of where they are grown in the Amazon region of Brazil. As an export, they are sold as a frozen fruit purée, dried powder or pressed juice.

Açai bowls are a great way to add lots of colorful fruits to your diet. Sprinkle on some crushed nuts, granola and shredded coconut and you have yourself a filling meal to power you through the day.

If you aren’t lucky enough to have a smoothie joint close to you that offers clean ingredient açai bowls, they are simple to make at home.


1 frozen banana

1 cup frozen cherries

1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries

1 tsp açai berry powder*

2 cups of coconut milk or unsweetened nut milk

Juice from 1 lime

1 tbsp honey or maple syrup

*make sure the only ingredient is powdered açai berry and no other fillers.


Place all ingredients in a high speed blender. You may need to use a blender plunger to help push the frozen fruit down.

Pour into a bowl and garnish with your favorite toppings. I would recommend any fruit, nuts, seeds, granola and coconut. However, you can be creative because the options are endless!
