Learn how to make the nation’s favorite superfood treat – the açaí bowl. Loaded with antioxidants, it’s no wonder these vibrant purple bowls of goodness are taking over your social media feeds. But there’s more to these super-bright berries than simply meets the eye.
Açaí berries (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) look a lot like grapes in their whole-fruit form, found in South America on açaí palm trees. They’re packed with compounds called ‘polyphenols’, which have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and cardio-protective properties – protecting your body from free radical damage and risk of heart problems.
This wonder-ingredient is also packed with essential nutrients like iron, potassium, magnesium and vitamin E, which are great for muscle function, reducing fatigue, and the immune and nervous system.
Açaí berry powder has a subtly sweet flavor and mixes in perfectly with yogurt, smoothies and smoothie bowls. This recipe blends açaí powder with frozen banana and yogurt to make a deliciously thick, ice cream-like texture, topped with extra fruit and crunchy granola if you’re feeling fancy.
You can use any yogurt you like for this açaí bowl recipe, like dairy-free yogurt if you’re following a vegan diet. Likewise, any and all toppings are welcome here – from fruit and granola to nut butters and coconut flakes. This guilt-free treat will leave you feeling satisfied and refreshed, ready for the day ahead.
