Useful tips for Acai Bowl

If you’re making a smoothie bowl, you want it thick. The point is to have a base that’s dense enough for your toppings to float upon. So don’t over-blend. You want a texture somewhere between smoothie and frozen dessert.

A list of toppings we’ve tried:
– Granola
– Bananas
– Strawberries
– Frozen blueberries
– Pineapple
– Kiwis
– Peanut butter
– Almond butter
– Coconut flakes
– Raisons
– Craisons
– Goji berries
– Almonds
– Flax seeds
– Chia seeds
– Bee pollen

The point is mixing crunchy with sweet. The more toppings and textures, the better!

We know that Costco carries Acai packets, but recently we found out that if you REALLY dig in the freezer section, that Trader Joe’s does too! As always, we’re sure you can get the packets at Whole Foods and other natural foods stores as well.
