Blueberry Acai Bowl Title

From the hot Amazon Rainforests of Brazil..

icy cold and creamy Acai Bowls have finally made it to the wintery flats of the Canadian prairies!

After Italy I have a real passion for gelato, but we all know that too much gelato isn’t healthy!

My daughter introduced me to the amazing Acai Berry this past week.

Our local market Blush Lane carries Sambazon Unsweetened Smoothie Packs, each contains four single servings of

Pure Acai Berry

Acai Berries { and Purée } are an antioxident, they’re filled with Omega 3, organic and contain

GMO-Free ingredients sustainably sourced in the Brazilian Amazon.

It’s color is a deep, rich reddish-brown.. an Indian Red or Burnt Sienna shade.

Best of all, these Acai Bowls

{ they’re called Bowls once the recipe is made }

are topped with fresh berries, coconut, granola and pretty much anything you’d like!

Wouldn’t you love a Bowl for breakfast or brunch?

These are also great for smoothies but we used them to make Breakfast Bowls for ourselves.

The taste and texture is as thick, creamy and decadent as frozen yogurt but Acai is Vegan, Raw and a Superfood!

We made ours in a food processor, it’s easier to grind up the frozen purée and whip the ingredients ’til smooth but thick in texture. We found our blender wasn’t up to the task.

If you have a Vitamix, you’ll be good to go!

Ingredients
  • 1 packet Sambazon Unsweetened Smoothie Pack
  • 1 banana

Instructions
  1. Run the freezer pack under hot water briefly then slide it out into the food processor. Add the banana, coconut water and blueberries. Put the lid on and blend, pulsing and running the processor until the mixture is thick, as thick as gelato or slightly softened ice cream.
  2. Pour into a large bowl, top with berries.

Some larger cities { like Anchorage, Alaska } have shops that sell a variety of Acai Bowls.

It’s my new favorite.. dessert for breakfast!
