What is an Acai Bowl?
An acai bowl is like a supercharged healthy fruit smoothie bowl. Acai berries are from South American rainforests and they are full of anti-oxidants, fiber, and calcium. They are heart healthy and are packed with Omega 3s.
You can buy acai puree at many grocery stores and when blended with FAGE Total Greek Yogurt, it makes an awesome breakfast or post workout snack!
What fruits can you add to an acai bowl?
You will love how so many fruits can work in an acai berry bowl. Acai bowl ingredients can include:
- Berries like strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries
- Shredded coconut
- Nuts like pecans and walnuts
- Seeds like chia and sunflower
- Peanut butter, because…who doesn’t love peanut butter?
How do you make an acai bowl?
To make the best acai bowls, I like to add frozen acai puree, a ripe banana, and FAGE Total Greek Yogurt into a blender with a little almond milk. (Feel free to add your favorite protein powder if you like.) Top your berry bowl with shredded coconut, chia seeds, sliced bananas, and sweet blueberries. I like to drizzle peanut butter on top too :-).
Add frozen bananas to a blender.
Add frozen Acai and creamy FAGE Total 0% Greek Yogurt to the blender.
Pour in your favorite milk. I used almond milk for this recipe.
Blend the smoothie until well blended.
Pour the acai mixture into a bowl.
Add shredded coconut and fresh blueberries to the acai bowl.
Add fresh blackberries to the bowl.
Add slivered almonds and enjoy!!
What about ways to use yogurt in lunch?
Now that breakfast is out of the way, let’s talk about how to use FAGE Total Greek Yogurt with lunch :-).
