Acai berries seem to be the flavour of the month and certainly acai bowls are one of the flavours of the year! I love them. But what is the best acai bowl recipe? Obviously from my side of the tracks it has to be one that includes turmeric. And sure enough my favourite acai bowl recipe includes turmeric. It also includes a number of other really healthy fruits and berry’s.
Have you ever had an acai bowl? If you haven’t you are missing out big time. They are seriously delicious, but thats not all, they are very, very healthy for your body.
What is an Acai Bowl?
An acai bowl is a healthy mix of acai berries, (usually frozen and blended into the mix) muesli or granola and a cocktail of delicious fruits on top. There is a sprinkling of muesli on the bottom of the bowl, topped with the acai mix then a little more muesli and covered with berries and other fruit. Is your mouth watering yet?
Ok I wont keep you in suspenders! Here is the answer to what is the best acai bowl recipe!
What is the Best Acai Bowl Recipe?
Hint – yes it does contain turmeric and some of my other favourite fruits. Here it is –
THE ACAI MIX
1 x block of acai frozen mix
1 x frozen banana
1 x avocado
Half a mango
1 half teaspoon of turmeric
pinch of black pepper
1 x banana
1 x Kiwi fruit in slices
4 strawberries sliced
Small amount of grated coconut
I like the crunchy granola or fruit free muesli
Around half a cup is all that is required.
Add the acai mix into your blender. I use a Nutri Bullet. Add just a touch of apple juice, coconut water or clean water just so it mixes ok in the Nutri Bullet. Let it blend for around 20 or 30 seconds until it looks like its done.
Then put a quarter of the cup of muesli in your bowl. Add the mix. Then add the rest of the muesli on top of that.
Then slice your banana, strawberries and kiwi fruit and add around the bowl. Add the blueberries and raspberries and some grated coconut. Make it look as good as you can. I am not great with making it look like a real cafe bowl. The first 2 pics are obviously from the experts and the one just above here is my effort. No comparison on presentation but let me tell you I have them covered on taste!

And as I always advise if you can’t get hold of turmeric powder or root get hold of some Pura Thrive Organic Turmeric Extract. It is what I use in many of my juices.
