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.
