I may be a little late to the party, but I recently discovered Açaí bowls, and it’s safe to say, I’m completely hooked! If you haven’t heard of Açaí, it’s an amazing superfood berry (Think: a hint of chocolate, wild berries, and very earthy) filled with antioxidants. This year, I’m kicking off the 4th of July with this pretty + delicious red, white, and blue treat. Instead of skipping the dessert table at this year’s BBQ, whip up this light, festive, berry-filled perfection. Added bonus: It’s super simple to make. This recipe is also a sneak peek at new recipes to be added to the TRANSFORM app in August! So ditch your traditional go-to dessert this holiday and whip up an Açaí Bowl!
Some of my favorite festive and essential kitchen goodies:
Red, White, and Blue Açaí Bowl:
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 Sambazon Açaí Superfoods Pack
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tablespoon peanut butter powder
2-3 ice cubes
1/4 cup blueberries
1/3 cup strawberries, sliced
1/4 medium banana (30g)
1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tablespoon granola (Kind Vanilla Blueberry)
1 teaspoon hemp seeds
1. Blend together almond milk, superfoods pack, protein powder, and PB powder in a high powered blender.
2. Pour into bowl and top with blueberries, strawberries, bananas, shredded coconut, granola, and hemp seeds. Enjoy!
