Course: Breakfast, Snack
Servings: 1 bowl


For the bowl:

  • 3.5 oz (100 grams) Acai pulp unsweetened frozen. Break the pulp into pieces before blending.
  • 1 ripe banana frozen
  • 1/4 cup cherries frozen
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) coconut water/milk of your choice/water +  a little more if needed

Other bowl ideas: frozen fruits like mango, pineapple, and berries. Chia seeds, nut butters, collagen powder, oats, and leafy greens like spinach and kale.

    For the toppings:

    • 1 handful granola  
    • 1 handful berries 
    • 1 handful coconut flakes

    Other topping ideas: banana, apples, mango, kiwi, pineapple chia seeds, almonds, pecans, walnuts, almond butter, peanut butter, a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.


      • Blend frozen Acai, banana, and cherries until combined and chunky. Then add to the blender the protein powder with water or milk, and blend until smooth. Pause blending periodically to spatula the ingredients off the sides of the blender towards the middle. Smoothie bowls are meant to be super thick and scoopable with a spoon. Start with ¼ cup, but you may also need to add more liquid if your blender isn’t as powerful.
      •  Pour the Acai mixture into the frozen bowls. Top and serve!

      Tips and Tricks:

      • You’ll typically find Acai processed into a pulp and frozen at the grocery store. But be sure to check the package label because some brands add sugar to the Acai. You can also buy Acai powder, which is usually in the supplement section.
