How to Make An Acai Bowl in 4 Steps

Did you know that learning how to make an acai bowl is actually pretty easy? Despite being Pinterest perfect and rather intimidating, acai bowls take a handful of ingredients, a fork, and a camera (if you’re going to share –which we recommend).

The Acai berry is native to South America and is known for its high antioxidant levels, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. By adding protein, nuts, or extra fruit to your bowl, you can jam pack most of you day’s nutrient dosage in one meal. Without further ado, let’s learn how to make an acai bowl.

Blend Your Acai Mix

The easiest way to make an acai bowl is to start with freeze-dried acai mix or acai maqui mix. We used the latter for the added benefit of maqui blueberry and red maca powder.
