Acai Bowl Recipes
now browsing by tag
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.

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. But for a cancer survivor, or someone wanting to avoid cancer, I am thinking about all the other great nutrients and antioxidants that I can include. So I am thinking an Acai Porridge for a winter Acai Bowl with some of the typical super-food ingredients for toppings.

Let’s start from the smoothie beverage. A smoothie is a richly blended beverage with high consistency. It is first pureed in a blender containing fruits and supplemented sometimes with vegetables. Added liquid such as fruit or vegetable juice, milk or yogurt makes it a complete beverage suitable for consumption as a highly nutritional meal. Without the liquids, the smoothie is much thicker and entails the use of a spoon and a bowl.
Nowadays, a healthy breakfast starts with Gourmet granola which is low on GI (Glycemic Index) and an array of nuts and seeds.
An Acai bowl is one whose main ingredient is pureed Acai berry. Essentially, an Acai bowl is a thick smoothie, sometimes loaded with Granola to give you the crunchy feel. Other fruits and protein powder may also be included to complete the meal. Acai berries powder is a stand-alone superfood of South American origin now grown in Australia.
The convenience is that has driven practice that powdered fruits and vegetables are now NOT freeze dried. Boost Nutrients’ slow drying process ensures that the colors are not lost nor the efficacy of the nutrients.
The toppings for a smoothie Acai Bowl is dictated by the needs of the concerned consumer, say, a bodybuilder would vouch for proteins in the form of hemp seeds or protein powder whereas those with a fetish for anti-cancer foods would ingredients rich in antioxidants. Other possible toppings include Organic Matcha tea powder, Organic Acai berry powder, Linseed, sunflower and Almond meal and a host of other possibilities ranging from coconut chip flakes, Chia seeds Bee pollen, etc.
