These are the best smoothie bowls! The're made with Brazilian Acai puree, frozen bananas and blueberries and sweet juice. Then they're finished with fresh fruit, granola and honey as desired. One of my all time favorite foods!Makes one large bowl big enough for sharing or 2 smaller bowls.
Ready in: 10minutes
1largeripe banana,peeled, cut into 1-inch chunks and frozen
2(3.5 oz) pkgsunsweetened frozen acai puree,thawed about 1/3 of the way under warm water
1/2cupsweet fruit juice*,then more as needed
Honey or vanilla flavored granola
Honey,to taste (optional)
Fresh fruit for topping*
Place bowls in freezer while preparing mixture.
Hit acai (in sealed packages) with a meat mallet to break into pieces.
To a high powered blender, add acai, banana pieces, blueberries, and juice.
Blend on a moderately low speed until smooth (lower speed works better for this thickness). If needed you can add a little more juice, and stir occasionally if it's too thick to blend.
Food processor instructions:
Add bananas to processor, cover with lid and hold processor down (it will want to jump!) then pulse in bursts to break into tiny bits.
Add blueberries, pulse in bursts to break into bits. Add acai and juice and pulse to a smooth puree.
Pour mixture into chilled bowls. Top with granola, fruit and drizzle with honey if desired.
*I use apple juice, grape juice or fruit punch blend. Only use 100% juice.
Most commonly I've found these topped with bananas, strawberries and blueberries. Coconut, kiwi, raspberries, and pineapple are other good options.
