Five minutes is all it takes to start the day with a powerfully good breakfast. To make this vegan acai bowl, simply blend coconut milk with fresh banana, acai berry puree and frozen blueberries. Spoon the blended acai mixture into a bowl and sprinkle with good-for-you ingredients like almonds, coconut and hemp seeds.
Banana Berry Acai Bowl Recipe (vegan)
1/4 cup canned full-fat coconut milk
1 medium fresh banana, sliced
1 pack (3.5 ounces) frozen acai berry puree (I used Sambazon pure unsweetened acai)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon chopped almonds
2 teaspoons unsweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon hemp seeds
Place coconut milk and half of the banana slices in a blender container. Run pack of frozen acai under hot water to thaw slightly; break into chunks. Snip open pack and drop acai into blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Add frozen blueberries to blender; cover and blend until smooth. Mixture should be thick; stop blender and scrape down sides as needed.
Pour mixture into a bowl. Top with the remaining banana slices, almonds, coconut and hemp seeds.
Makes 1 serving
Tip: I use a Vita-Mix high speed blender, which makes quick work of blending frozen fruit. If you use a standard blender, you may need to add 1 to 2 tablespoons additional coconut milk or slightly thaw the blueberries for easier blending.
