Healthy Homemade Açaí Superfood Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Rikki Teeters

Smoothie Bowls are all the rage in 2017. For good reason too, since they can be extremely healthy and delicious. You might have seen Instagram posts of beautiful bright smoothie bowls made by local Juiceries. Did you know that you can make your own healthy smoothie bowls at home? There are endless possibilities for DIY healthy smoothie bowls. Our very favorite type of bowls are Açaí (ah-sigh-EE) because of their taste and health benefits.

As always at Ohio Explored we strive to support local with all of our daily purchases. To create our Homemade Açaí Superfood Smoothie Bowls, we make sure to buy all of our ingredients from local markets. Jungle Jim's International Market is an amazing Ohio-owned market in Cincinnati where we can easily find all of our ingredients. They offer a lot of Ohio Made Ingredients as well as healthy exotic foods like Açaí puree which can be difficult or impossible to find a basic super markets.

Açaí berries are widely known as a superfood because they are helpful for a variety of health issues, including arthritis, weight loss, high cholesterol, skin appearance, detoxification and general health. The Açaí berry is a fruit harvested from Açaí trees, which are native to the rain forests of South America. Açaí berries contain antioxidants, fiber and heart-healthy fats.

Note: You can buy fresh or frozen fruit for this recipe depending on your preference of smoothie texture. For thicker texture, use frozen fruits. For more liquefied texture (our favorite) use fresh fruits + frozen Açaí puree). Always use fresh fruits for toppings.

To make this delicious smoothie bowl, you will need to buy the following ingredients.

Ingredients for the Smoothie Bowl:

  • 2 Packets Unsweetened Açaí Puree (The Sambazon packs at Jungle Jim's come with 4 Packets)

  • 1/4 Cup Sliced Strawberries
  • 1/2 Sliced Banana
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Water

  • 1/2 Sliced Banana
  • 1/4 Cup Shredded or Sliced Coconut

  • 1/4 Cup Ohio Made Granola
  • Drizzle of Ohio Made Honey

Instructions:

  1. Wash and dry fresh fruits.
  2. Remove Açaí puree from freezer. Run under water for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  3. Break up the puree with your hands while it is still in the packets before opening.
  4. Use clean scissors to cut open the Açaí puree packets and empty them into a blender (we use a NutriBullet blender).
  5. Add all ingredients for smoothie bow into blender.
