Why would you want to make Acai Bowls? Turns out everyone is eating a bowl filled with goodness for every meal—breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And we’re not talking about bowls that look like the bowls of a decade ago—filled with cereal or soup. We’re talking about bowls packed with a rainbow of ingredients and a full spectrum of health benefits. And one of the most popular bowls types are those that start with an ingredient you may not have heard of—acai.
Acai is a berry, native to Brazil, that has been a boon to researchers digging up things that are good for you to eat. The berry helps to minimize inflammation and help recover from muscle damage that happens after exercise. And while acai berries themselves don’t last very long fresh, they can be pureed or powdered, making them a wonderful smoothie-like base to bowls.
Some people make acai bowls for breakfast to jump start their day. You can also eat them miday for a snack and there is nothing stopping you from even eating acai bowls for dinner!
Here are some ideas to help you use this powerhouse as a bowl base.
Now that you know the basics on how to make acia bowls, here some top recipes to try.
