North Shore Acai Bowl
5 frozen strawberries
½ c. frozen blueberries
1/3 of a frozen acai package (Costco sells them)
1/3 c. frozen mango
1 small banana, divided
2 Tbsp. pineapple juice
2 Tbsp. unsweetened coconut milk (from the carton, not a can)
Toppings- fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, banana slices, unsweetened shredded coconut, hemp granola, honey or agave syrup
strawberry slices, fresh blueberries, banana slices, shredded coconut, granola and honey. Or anything you love… there's no rules here!
In a powerful blender such as a Blendtec, combine the frozen fruit, half of the banana, 1/3 of the frozen acai package, the pineapple juice and coconut milk. Blend until smooth, but still firm. It is important you stop the blender frequently to push the fruit down in the blender so you keep the consistency from getting too liquidy. If you over blend it without stopping every now and then, you will end up with a smoothie, not an acai bowl. Ladel out into a bowl. Top with strawberry slices, fresh blueberries, banana slices, shredded coconut, granola and honey(if desired). Enjoy!
Makes 1 bowl
(You can double this recipe for two bowls but I don’t recommend doing more than doubling the recipe at a time)
