Okay, so I made this acai bowl yesterday that was delicious and super easy! I’ll reason with you guys: I almost never measure my ingredients when I’m creating a recipe. Sometimes I do, but a lot of it is trial and error, or just good old eyeballing.
I use frozen acai puree from Trader Joe’s for my acai bowls. The packets can be a little messy if you’re not careful, but they come packaged with the perfect amount, plus they’re already frozen, so it makes your acai bowl that much quicker and easier to make! TJ’s has some great stuff in their frozen section that makes smoothie making super simple. If you haven’t taken a close look at their frozen fruit, make a note to check it out the next time you’re in their store!
For this recipe, I used the following ingredients (almost all of which can be found at Trader Joe’s), but note that I’m estimating the quantities. It’s your bowl, so make it yours! Have some fun!
1 packet acai puree
1/4 cup frozen pineapple tidbits
1/4 cup mango chunks
2 Tbsp Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate (affiliate link)
1/2 cup kale
1/2 cup blueberry lavender almond milk
