A?aí Smoothie Bowl
The açaí berry trend shows no signs of slowing down—and why should it? With its subtle hints of cacao and powerful berry tang, açaí’s rich, complex flavor profile is refreshingly irresistible. On-the-go cafés and juiceries have devoted entire sections of their menus to energizing smoothies and filling breakfast bowls made with this brilliant berry of the Amazon. These menu offerings, however, are typically packed with sugar and are often quite expensive.
So this is us, taking matters into our own hands. And our own bowls. Got a few minutes and a blender? Then grab a packet of Trader Joe's Organic Unsweetened Açaí Purée and give this tantalizingly tropical, easy-peasy recipe a try. Your body—and your wallet—will thank you. acai
Add Açaí packet, berry blend, almond milk, and half of the banana to blender (and protein, if using). Blend until smooth (adjust almond milk if needed). Scrape smoothie mixture into bowl. Top with remaining banana slices, granola and dates. Grab a spoon and dig in.
