Açai Bowl (GF,DF,V)

Updated: Jun 29, 2018

Ever since I got my own coconut bowl, I absolutely love using it. Plus, it comes with a wooden spoon that's definitely better than stainless steel. When I first received the bowl, I made an açai bowl as an "initiation" for it.

I love making açai bowl because it is so refreshing and nutritious. In the summer, it makes a perfect snack or even breakfast!

What is Açai exactly? Well, first it is pronounced "ah-sa-ee". I'm telling you this because I used to pronounce it "ah-chay".

Açai bowl's main ingredient is açai powder, which comes from açai berries that are native to South America. They are high in anti-oxidants, which makes it great for your skin and heart health. Other than that, they are also a good source of fibre, which helps with your digestion.
