Tropical Acai Bowls {Is it Summer?}

Pin It Now!

It's been hot here lately!  I think Mother Nature has confused Spring and Summer.

We had a super lazy weekend in the heat and I knew I didn't want to spend loads of time in the kitchen.  Hubby and I love acai bowls, and so does Ayden.  He is so excited to share Daddy's bowl and says "Mmmmmmm!" when he gets his bites!  

There's a great place here in town to get Acai bowls, but at around $9 per bowl it's not exactly economical to do on the regular.  Plus, the bowls are so easy to make at home and I don't even have to change out of my pjs.  Winning!

Acai is easily found in the frozen section in many markets.  We get ours at Costco because it comes in super convenient smoothie packs that are the perfect portion.  Usually I would make my own granola, but haven't had the time do lately.  We love Nature's Path granola and always have some on hand.  You can switch up the ingredients in this recipe so easily to use what you have in the house.  Fruit will of course be best when it is in season, so peruse your farmer's market for the best selection.

Tropical Acai Bowls
| Prep: 5 mins | Serves: 1 large or 2 small bowls |
1 smoothie pack frozen acai
1/3 c (ish) frozen pineapple
3-4 strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 coconut milk (sub OJ, pineapple juice, coconut water, water)
fresh fruit
shredded/flaked coconut

Place acai, frozen pineapple, berries and liquid into a blender and pulse until smooth.  Pour into bowls and top with the granola, coconut, fruit, etc. and enjoy!

Equally delicious: chunky baby thighs.

...and cheeks.
