ACAI BOWL RECIPE
The acai bowl is showing up on menus and even entire restaurants are popping up all over the place.  Acai is so good for you – what better way to enjoy it than in a healthy frozen treat made in a Blendtec or Vitamix blender that the whole family will enjoy!  

This Brazilian superfood has become popular as a drink and base for a smoothie recipe, such as used in our Acai Cancer fighting smoothie.  Blender Babes loves the organic Sambazon brand for the best quality and flavor. This acai bowl has a sorbet texture.  

Blender Babes recommends adding 1/2 banana to this recipe which gives it a thicker and creamier texture, not to mention provides added nutrition!!  Then use the other half as the topping.

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
The acai berry is an inch-long reddish berry, that is known as a “superfood” because of its many health benefits, anti-aging properties, and weight loss claims.

Best Meal Planning App

It is also used in cosmetics and beauty products.  It comes from the acai palm tree (Euterpe oleracea), which is native to Central and South America.

Acai contains several substances called anthocyanins and flavonoidsAnthocyanins and flavonoids are powerful antioxidants that help defend the body against life’s stressors. They also play a role in the body’s cell protection system.

Free radicals are harmful byproducts produced by the body. Eating a diet rich in antioxidants may interfere with aging and the disease process by neutralizing free radicals.  By lessening the destructive power of free radicals, antioxidants may help reduce the risk of some diseases, such as heart disease and cancer.

      Hey Mike! You can definitely make an acai bowl in any of the blendtec jars including the Wildside and Fourside (except the mini twister!). You just might not be able to make a very small amount. If making for 1-2 people, I usually use 1 frozen acai packet, 1 frozen banana and 1 cup frozen berries plus about 1/4 cup of liquid. If making only for 1 and a small amount I like to use my Twister jar and about half of the recipe above. HAPPY BLENDING! ~Tarashaun

    I'm not sure I could make an Acai bowl as good as the one I had in Recife, Brazil! Sooooo good!
