acai bowls are really, really good. they are my favorite thing to eat for lunch and i always eat them the same: strawberries, bananas, and granola on top, no honey, hold the berries. but ya know what else? they are so expensive! especially in hawaii. with my recent shift to freelance life, we’ve had to adjust our monthly spending habits and a $10 bowl just isn’t in the everyday budget. so now we make our own. and they are just as tasty! here’s how i make mine:
1 // blend 1 sambazon acai packet + handful of frozen strawberries + 1 frozen banana (makes it super thick!)
2 // top with granola + fresh fruit
*i highly recommend using a vitamix or some other decent blender. we don’t have one but it’s at the top of my wishlist. i think i got our current blender for a dollar at a garage sale and it majorly struggles when trying to puree all that frozen fruit. i swear the motor is just going to blow up one of these days.
