Acai Bowls

My new food obsession: Acai bowls! 

I made mine with 1/4 cup Sambazon Acai Juice, 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries, 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt, and one whole banana. Mix it all together in blender then top it with more fruit and/or granola. I topped mine with chia seeds and homemade granola.
I used this guide for making the granola. 

I didn’t add dried fruit and I baked mine a little longer at a higher temp because I wanted my granola to be more crunchy.  
Most recipes have recommended using the frozen Acai smoothie packets but I wasn’t able to find them. The juice works just fine. Plus, you can do what I did and freeze the rest of the juice and scoop some out as needed. If you do this you will need to use a little liquid such as almond milk, coconut water, or aloe vera juice. 
The second time I made then bowl I only used almond milk (and nixed the yogurt) and I wasn’t a fan. While it’s basically a smoothie in a bowl it tasted too much like a smoothie to me. It didn’t have the smooth soft serve frozen yogurt consistency the first bowl had.  

Living in Columbia, South Carolina and using this blog as my space to share a little insight into my life in what I'm making on the sewing machine, knitting needles, crochet hooks, in the kitchen, and elsewhere.
