Today I’m sharing one of the best food items I’ve discovered since moving to Hawaii – acai bowls! You guys – this post has been a long time in the making. I know it probably sounds silly, but I have been trying to master the perfect acai bowl consistency for the entire time I’ve lived in Hawaii. More often than not, I would wind up frustrated with a soupy bowl and head out to the store to just buy one. Getting the texture down is a lot harder than it seems #realtalk BUT! The day has finally come (and 100 bags of acai packets later), I’ve mastered the texture for a delicious bowl and equally yummy toppings. One thing you’ll notice is that my bowl is lacking banana slices and that is because I’m not a huge fan of banana, so I choose to leave it off. Lucky for all of you – toppings are completely customizable! Add or subtract whatever you want when it comes to toppings 🙂 Now let’s get down to business in sharing my pineapple acai bowl recipe!
Easy Pineapple Acai Bowl
You Will Need:
2 cups fresh pineapple
2 Sambazon acai packets
1 frozen banana
splash of coconut milk
1 drop lime essential oil
Toppings: coconut, kiwi, peaches, blueberries, strawberries, granola, agave, pineapple – the options are endless + completely customizable!
1. Start by putting all your ingredients into a high powered blender. I love my Vitamix for this!
2. When it has reached the consistency you like, remove it from the blender and pour evenly into a bowl.
3. Top with whatever toppings you enjoy. I always like to add a crunchy element like granola or coconut, but whatever you add on top is completely up to you!
Now it’s time to dig into your bowl! I absolutely love the refreshing taste of acai bowls any time of the day to be honest. Breakfast, lunch, dinner – if you’re offering me an acai bowl, I’m right there to accept it happily. One question I get asked a lot about my recipe is the addition of the lime essential oil. It’s a tang taste that not everyone appreciates like I do, so if you want something a little more basic, feel free to leave it out! It is still delicious, I promise.
