Serves 1

  • 1 (3.5 oz) frozen açaí pack
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • raw honey or sweetener of choice, to taste (optional)

For the topping

  • 1 teaspoon bee pollen
  • 1/2 tablespoon hemp seed
  • 1/2 tablespoon goji berries
  • 1/2 tablespoon Cacao seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon toasted coconut
  • Fruit of choice for garnish (I used starfruit and blueberries)

To assemble bowl, break the açaí pack into pieces by running warm water over the pack and loosening it up before opening the pack and adding to a blender. Add the banana, water, blueberries and honey to the blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds or until smooth.

Transfer the Açaí mixture to a bowl and top with coconut, hemp seed, cacao seeds, bee pollen, and goji berries. Add fruit of choice to garnish. Have fun with this part and check out gorgeous #açaíbowl inspiration on instagram to make your bowl as gorgeous as you are;).
