How to Build the Perfect Acai Bowl
There are many delicious frozen treats that you can snack on in the summer, but an acai bowl is always the most refreshing. There is no need to continue spending your money purchasing these bowls, when you can make them at home. All you need is a blender, some fruit, and of course, the toppings. Preparing meals can be fun, especially when you can be creative. Here are the steps that you can take in order to create the ultimate acai bowl.
Decide what you want to put in your mixture for the bowl. You can choose your favorite smoothie ingredients and then add frozen acai. The beauty of making your own bowl, is that you can choose what you taste. An option is to put frozen acai, mango, strawberries, bananas, blueberries, and spinach into the mixture. Another helpful tip is to make sure that your fruits and vegetables are frozen. This will allow the mixture to blend easy and your base will be colder. Fruits also last longer in the freezer, so this way you can ensure that your ingredients will stay fresh.
Blend your ingredients in a blender until smooth, but make sure the mixture is thick. If the mixture is too thin, blend another banana into it. Another important detail is to choose your liquid. You can be creative with this as well. Choose from any juice, milk, or even coconut water. Juices add a sweeter taste to it, so if you have a wicked sweet tooth then add some pineapple or orange juice. If you want a creamier and thicker taste, then choose from any type of milk such as almond, non fat, or coconut milk. Finally, if you want a very light taste, then add water to your mixture. This is perfect for anyone who doesn’t want a sweet taste or who is allergic to milk.
The perfect acai bowl has the perfect toppings. The most popular toppings include granola, cut up fruits, or even peanut butter. The toppings are what make your mouth burst with flavor, so remember to choose wisely. Another topping that brings out the tropical sweetness is honey or agave. Drizzle the honey or agave on top for a final sweetness factor. Other creative toppings can include chocolate chips, coconut shavings, and almonds. You are the creator of your bowl, so add anything tasty that you can think of.
After your mixture is complete, and toppings are chosen, it’s time to put the whole thing together. What will you put your acai bowl in? If you want to be a little more creative, hollow out a fruit and fill it with your bowl. You can hollow out a pineapple or a coconut and your bowl will be absolutely tropical. Having food as the bowl will also help you create the perfect Instagram picture when you post your perfectly made bowl.
Enjoy your summer day with a beautiful acai bowl that you created from scratch.
