Perfect for breakfast, after a workout, or a healthy snack, these bowls are easy to make at home. —Liren Baker

What You'll Need
  • For the açaí bowl:
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1 banana
  • 2 packets frozen açaí (I like Sambazon Original Blend Açaí Berry), thawed for 5 seconds under running water, then broken into chunks
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • For the toppings:
  • 1/4 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 1/8 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup granola
  • Chia seeds (optional)
  • Honey, to taste
  1. Add the apple juice, banana, açaí, blueberries, and pineapple, in that order, to a blender. Blend on low speed until the mixture is thick and creamy. Pause as needed to scrape the mixture off the sides to help it blend evenly. Transfer to a bowl, and let it set in the freezer while you prepare your toppings.
  2. To serve, top with the strawberries, blueberries, banana, coconut, and granola. Add chia seeds if desired and sweeten with honey to taste. Enjoy immediately.

This sounds great! Any chance it can be made in advance, say the night before for breakfast?

Hi Kerry! I have tried making it the night before, but it tends to freeze which can be difficult to thaw out for breakfast. It's really ideal to make the morning of, but can definitely be made up to 45 minutes in advance. I hope that helps!

I have made them in advance and it works well if you freeze it for a few hours after you make it. Then put it in the fridge before you go to bed. In the morning it is back to the right consistency. Then add the toppings. I cut up the fruit the night before so it is ready to go.
