Earth Day Açaí Bowls

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

This Friday is Earth Day, and we here at Pacific Merchants are celebrating with our responsibly forested Acaciaware® – the perfect display for these gorgeous and healthy açaí bowls.  

Earth Day is a day to celebrate and respect the beauty of our planet – and this fruity açaí bowl definitely shows off some of mother nature’s finest treasures! The açaí berry is not only incredibly rich in antioxidants – it also tastes wonderful blended into a thick frozen yogurt-like smoothie (…two of the many reasons açaí bowls have become so trendy as of late!)

Learning to make açaí bowls at home will not only save you a few bucks, but will also be the perfect activity to celebrate Earth Day this year – especially if using fresh fruits from the farmer’s market! Plus, with the weather heating up, these frozen treats make for an undeniably refreshing and oh-so sweet afternoon pick-me-up.

Earth Day Açaí Bowls

Serves 1.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pouch of frozen açaí purée
  • 1/4 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1/4 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1 frozen ripe banana
  • 5 fresh strawberries
  • A splash of apple juice

top with:

  • Hemp seed granola
  • Almonds
  • Goji berries
  • Coconut flakes
  • Fresh fruit
  • A drizzle of honey

 

3 SIMPLE STEPS:

  1. Place the frozen açaí purée, pineapple chunks, mango chunks, banana, and strawberries into a blender. Pulse until the frozen fruit is broken down slightly.
  2. Slowly add in a splash or two of apple juice, just until the mixture comes together. *Be careful not to add too much! Blend until smooth.
  1. Pour the smooth and creamy blended açaí into an Acaciaware® bowl, decorate with your favorite toppings, and enjoy!

* (The key to a perfect açaí bowl is thickness: the blended açaí mixture should be thick enough to eat with a spoon!)

 

Oh, and Happy Earth Day!
