Ways to Make an Acai Bowl:

Making an acai bowl is itself an art. The most frequently asked question is how to make an acai bowl? Here we are going to answer it.

Acai bowls are thick topped smoothie bowls. They are made of pulped and frozen acai berries, purified with other frozen fruits, then served in a bowl and finished with a variety of fresh fruits, granola, seeds, nuts, peanut butter, etc.

Acai bowls are cold, refreshing, creamy, and sorbet-like and have a deep, complex flavor of a berry. Unlike other berries that can taste too sweet, in my experience, acai bowls are still well healthy, and a flavor that I never tire of.

And instead of the toppings. Dress them up or dress them up but without toppings, you can’t have an acai bowl. They create a crunchy, creamy, bright textured dance against the cool, creamy acai.

Three easy steps to make this Acai Bowl:

  1. Freeze the fruit. Slice your banana and transfer it to a small parchment paper-lined baking sheet or plate. Add the blueberries and strawberries to the same plate (shop-bought frozen fruit will work as well). Transfer the tray or plate into the freezer and allow the fruit to fully freeze.
  2. In a blender, add the frozen fruits. Using the tamper to force down the frozen fruit with the blender on low, adding in as fast as possible. Continue to mix at low till smooth, adding only extra liquid when needed.
  3. Serve it cold.


Acai is also known as a “superfruit” because it is dense in nutrients, packed with antioxidants, vitamins, mineral fibers, amino acids, and heart-healthy fats. They are rich in antioxidants than cranberries, blueberries, and strawberries, claim the Mayo Clinic. Other researches suggest that acai contains more antioxidants than any of the world’s known edible fruit. Moreover, acai is low in sugar and higher in the healthy fats-the opposite of most fruits high in sugar.
