Acai Bowls

Hey guys 🙂

I know, we are not the first posting an acai bowl recipe but I’ll do it anyway. 2-3 weeks ago we made a sister evening at Sabine’s place and for the first time ever we made Acai bowls (for dinner, yes 😉 ). Honestly, I’ve only had one once in London but when I’m brunching and if I have the choice between poached eggs and acai bowl I just always go for the poached eggs – loooove them (ok, honestly: I love a bucket of nutella – with or without bread – even a bit more… ). But the difference between eating tons of nutella and an acai bowl is, that after having eaten the acai bowl you feel good – you feel energized, not bloated and even if it tastes like a dessert you won’t have a suger overdosis after it.  So I think from now on, acai bowls will be a pretty good option to go for if a) I don’t feel like eating eggs (or there aren’t any – hello vegan trend :D) and b) I can handle my nutella cravings at brunch. BTW: you’ll find acai in health shops (Reformhaus).

Thank you for reading!

Recipe

Acai Bowls (for 4)

  • 10 frozen bananas (it’s a lot I know  – but you’ll need it, believe me;) )
  • 500 g frozen berries (we had rasperries)
  • acai powder
  • 3 dl almond milk (water or normal milk work as well)

For topping

  • whatever you like!

Granola

  • 200 g oats
  • 5 Tbsp honey (maybe you want more or less – but all the oats must be covered a bit. You can also take agave syrup)
  • 50 ml olive oil
  • coconut flakes

Instructions for acai bowl

  • 1. Blend the bananas with the berries and the milk (you need to peel the bananas and cut them in pieces before you freeze them. If you make the amount we did you, divide it into 2 servings and blend 5 bananas with 250 g of berries and 1.5 dl milk…)
  • 2. Mix in the acai powder
  • 3. Top it with whatever you want

Instructions for the granola

  • 1. Prehet the oven to 120 degrees
  • 2. Mix all the ingredients together (without the coconut flakes)
  • 3. Spread the mixtures over a baking sheet (make sure it’s evenly spread)
  • 4. Bake it for 30 – 40 minutes
  • 5. Mix in the coconut flakes
  • 6. Put the granola back in the oven and bake until crispy  (but not too crispy, because it will get crispier when it cools down – around 20 min)
  • If you are in a hurry, prehet the oven to 180 degrees – but make sure the granola don’t burn. We made the mistake that we put in the coconut flakes from the beginning – not really a good idea, because they burn much faster then the rest of the mixture :S)
  • If you like nuts – mix nuts into the granola 🙂

Enjoy
