Equipment

  • High powered blender

Ingredients

Bowl

  • 1 packet (3.8 ounces) Açaí packet (Note 1)
  • 1 cup chocolate almond milk (I find this too bitter with any other milk; it does need chocolate milk)
  • 1 tablespoon Dutch process (Special Dark) cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen ripe banana
  • 6-8 ice cubes

Toppings (Note 2)

  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons honey vanilla granola
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons sliced almonds or coarsely chopped nuts
  • 6-8 thin slices of a ripe banana
  • Small handful fresh berries
  • Optional: drizzle of pure maple syrup or honey

Instructions

  • NIGHT BEFORE: Remove the peel from the banana, slice into large coins, and place in a plastic bag in the freezer.
  • MORNING OF: Add the unwrapped açaí packet to the blender. Pulse a few times to break it down. Then add the ingredients in this order: 1 cup chocolate almond milk, 1 tablespoon Dutch process cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons almond butter, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1/2 cup frozen banana, and 6-8 ice cubes.
  • BLEND: Blend. This might take a little patience but we want a thick açaí bowl, not a smoothie. Blend, stir in between blends, and scrape down the sides as needed. It typically takes my blender 2-3 cycles to turn the mixture smooth and creamy.
  • TOP: Spoon the mixture into a bowl. Add the toppings of your choice: granola, sliced almonds, a few slices of banana, and a few fresh berries. If desired, add a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.

Notes

Note 1: I've tried a lot of frozen açaí packets and my two favorites are by Sambazon and Trader Joe's. My very favorite is the Trader Joe's brand (not sponsored) and it's what I'll use most commonly since I don't live too far from a Trader Joe's store.
Note 2: Calories are accounting for just the base. Toppings vary and can't be accurately calculated.
