All jokes açai'd, this is my favorite açai bowl recipe... so much so, that some nights I stay up contemplating opening up our own FOOD TRUCK where all I do is serve açai bowls with all the toppings. (hashtag: trademarking this idea, so no ideas)
The toppings is where the magic happens and we will get to that but first... WHY AÇAI BOWLS, Amber? Well. I stumbled upon the magic of these bowls when I attended a veterinary conference about 2-3years ago down in San Diego. It was delicious but NOT something that was rather common in the boonies of East Texas... so, I forgot about them. (tragic, I know).
Recently, our family relocated AND we may be in trouble as the place we are currently staying is 2mins from a cafe that whips up delicious açaí bowls. Yet the price tag DEFINITELY PACKS a GUT PUNCH... so, I decided to learn how to MAKE my own.
These berries are packed with some impressive health benefits... such as:
YET the best part of açaí bowls to me is ALL the toppings like I mentioned above! I love adding a bit of crunch with crushed walnuts, pumpkin seeds, bee pollen, chia and flax seeds and drizzled with a wee bit of honey or even almond butter!
Anywho. Here's a simple BASE for your açai bowl... but promise me, when we get our food truck UP and running, you'll come by to visit + snag one of our bowls!
Some of my FAVORITE toppings on my açai bowl include: sliced up bananas, chia seeds, bee pollen, a drizzle of honey, fresh organic blueberries and a dab of melted almond butter. BUT the question is this... what is YOUR favorite toppings?
I'd seriously like to know... research, mainly for my dream of a food truck... share with me your FAVORITE TOPPINGS here! The more you know, the more you can grow :)
love + gumption.
