Acai bowl with frozen acai puree:

  • 11/2 frozen bananas (9.2 oz /260 grams), chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries (2.6 oz / 75 grams)
  • 2 packets frozen acai puree (7 oz / 200 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey for vegetarians)
  • 1-2 tablespoons juice or water

Acai bowl with acai powder:

  • 2 large frozen bananas (12.4 oz / 350 grams), chopped
  • 1 cup berries (4.2 oz / 150 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons acai powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1-2 tablespoons juice or water

For Serving:

  • Fresh fruit, granola, chopped nuts, desiccated coconut, bee pollen


  1. Transfer all the ingredients for the acai bowl (except the juice/water) to a food processor and process until smooth. You will have to stop and scrape the bowl several times before everything starts to blend together smoothly. Add 1-2 tablespoons of juice or water if you want to speed the process.

  2. Divide to 2 bowls and top with fresh fruit, granola, nuts, coconut or whatever you like. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

  • Place all the fruit in the freezer at least 4-5 hours before making the acai bowl.
  • The berries can be blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, cherries or a mix.
  • The bananas should be very ripe. I let my bananas stay on the counter until they develop black spots on their skins. I then peel them and freeze them for later use in smoothies and other recipes.
  • I haven't made this recipe in a blender. If you want to try it, I estimate you'll need a heavy duty blender with a tamper and more juice to help everything blend. Keep in mind that adding more juice will make the acai bowl less thick.
