Basic Açai Power Bowl

Author Noelle Parton

Ingredients

The blend:

  • Açai puree
  • Avocado
  • Frozen banana if desired
  • Chia seeds
  • Dates
  • Water coconut milk, or other nut milk, if needed

Toppings:

  • Dried unsweetened fruit
  • Activated or sprouted nuts and seeds
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Sprouted nut butter
  • Sprouted granola/cereal

Instructions

  1. Run your açai packet under lukewarm water until you can break it up. Open your packet and put açai in blender. I use one packet of açai for one large bowl.
  2. Cut your avocado in half and place as much avocado as you'd like into your blender. I use about 1/2 of a medium sized avocado. Add a few pieces of frozen banana if using, or add extra avocado if not.
  3. Sprinkle in the chia seeds remembering that this is what will help it thicken. The more chia seeds you add, the more it will become like a pudding, so I try to keep it to about a spoonful, but use as much as you'd like.
  4. Add in one or two dates to start. If I use frozen banana then I don't add dates because it is sweet enough, however, without bananas you will need a few, depending on taste.
  5. Blend until smooth and creamy, about one minute, streaming in your liquid of choice (water, coconut or nut milk) if needed to help blend.
  6. If your end product is not thick enough, add more chia seeds, frozen banana, or even some ice, and blend until creamy.
  7. Scoop this delicious, creamy açai into your bowl and top with your choice of toppings!

Recipe Notes

You'll need a good blender (I use a Vitamix).
