Acai Bowl Recipes
now browsing by category
We have all seen a perfectly frosted gelato style acai smoothie bowl, with its ice cream swirls and candy colours. But unless you have a really powerful blender the reality can be quite different. A dreadful crunching noise. The smell of burning motor. By the time you tentatively crush down all the frozen bits, allowing the liquid time to do its work, you have…yay…a smoothie. One that you could drink with a very thin straw.
It is entirely possible to summon up beautifully frozen treats with a personal blender, and we are going to show you how. All it takes is a little forward planning.
To make your frosted berry acai smoothie bowl you will need…
1 large banana worth of frozen banana chunks 4 average size coconut milk ice cubes, made from thick tinned coconut milk 1 cup frozen berries, mostly large ones like strawberries 1 tbsp acai powder 1 tbsp whey concentrate protein powder 1 tsp vanilla To garnish - Frozen berries Coconut flakes Granola Date syrup
How much time will I need?
Depending on the heat in your kitchen, you will need about 20 to 30 minutes waiting time to semi defrost your fruit and coconut ice cubes. Once that is done, it takes a few minutes to blend your acai smoothie bowl.
Step by step recipe for frosted berry acai smoothie bowl
Step 1 – semi-defrost
The crucial stage of getting a good texture in your smoothie bowl base is the partial defrosting of the ingredients. Leave the ingredients out to defrost slightly for about 20 to 30 minutes. If your kitchen is hot, they may need less time. You are looking to just take the edge off the hardness so that your personal blender can cope.
If you put the bowl into the freezer it will keep your frosted smoothie colder for longer.
1 large banana, frozen
4 coconut milk ice cubes
Step 2 – begin blitzing the ingredients
The coconut ice cubes are blended down first as they are harder than all the other ingredients. The whey concentrate and the acai powder add not only nutrients but help with the texture too.
Add the powders and blitz to a fine snow.
Step 3 – add the semi-frozen fruits
Add the semi-frozen fruits to the blender and pulse until the smooth. The combination of the ice and the powders, plus the softened fruits, helps the blender to cope without the ingredients melting down. Notice that we are not adding any liquid at all.
Step 4 – garnish
Add a little granola for crunch
some creamy coconut flakes
beautiful frozen berries
A drizzle of date syrup for extra sweetness.

Step-by-step recipe for super quick berry bowl smoothie
Measure 30g porridge oats into a bowl. Because this recipe calls for a quick method (ie microwave) you will need oats that say quick on the packet. These are just like regular oats, but are milled more finely. You can of course use regular porridge oats but they may not be suitable for microwave. In fact you may just end up with exploding milk so be warned. You could also use a porridge blend like our 5 Grain Organic Porridge, but you may need to cook on the stovetop.
Add 180ml coconut milk. For a creamier coconutty porridge you could use canned coconut milk, or the creamed coconut that you rehydrate yourself. For regular milk, without the dairy, then go for coconut milk in a carton from the fridge.
Microwave on full power for 2 mins. Stir. Again, bear in mind the above notes on the type of porridge you use. There are plenty of other base options for a healthy quick smoothie, something we will run through in another post. If your porridge is a little on the undercooked side, give it another minute.
Add 1 teaspoon coconut oil. You don’t have to do this. There are plenty of essential fatty acids in the flaxseeds, but it does give an extra rich boost to your bowl smoothie if you are hungry or simply feeling decadent.
Add 2 tablespoons flaxseed powder or our LSA mix. A blend of linseed (aka flax), sunflower seeds and almonds, it gives a nutty boost as well as added texture.
Stir to combine.
Garnish with berries…
…and finally a flourish of date syrup.
That’s how quick and easy it can be to maximise nutrition, and flavour, at breakfast (or indeed any other) time.

It is a cold wet day in June here at Lake Macquarie and the lady lake is totally grey from an overcast sky. On days like this my breakfast ideas quickly look to a nice smooth warm porridge.
