Do It Yourself Guide to Making Healthy Acai Bowls

Acai Bowls

I have seen the hype of these Acai Bowls all over the internet and Instagram! I finally caved in and did a quick search to see where I could get one myself. However being on the east coast, sorta near D.C., I had some trouble finding exactly what I wanted so I decided to make it myself.

You can purchase Acai berries from any local grocery store in their frozen aisle or on Amazon through their frozen goods section. Acai Bowls can also be found and purchased at local smoothie or juice places. If your unable to get these berries, Goji Berries are also a great alternative to getting all the same antioxidant benefits.

DIY Acai Bowls

The steps in making Acai Bowls is fairly simple. I was surprised that even though my smoothie was not as thick as I would have liked it, the fruit did not sink in all the way.

1. Cut up fruit for both smoothie and toppings.

2. Make a thick smoothie.

3. Add toppings.
