Secret Ingredient Açaí Bowl

I love incorporating different things into my açaí bowls to play around with the flavor, so when I was sent some Açaí Roots organic all-natural açaí powder, I decided to push the limits of what goes into making a traditional açaí bowl. This one is definitely packed with nutrients and turned out super vibrant and purple in color. It was also a little thicker than usual, texture-wise, possibly due to the added veggies!. The two I used were cooked beetroot and zucchini. This bowl wasn’t super sweet, so if you prefer to not taste the beetroot at all, you can feel free to chuck in a couple dates or some plant-based sweetener of choice (or even extra banana). Hope you try it out!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup liquid (water or almond milk)
  • 1 tbsp açaí powder of choice
  • 1 or more frozen bananas (depending on how much you want to make)
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries (or more)
  • 1/2 of a chopped small-sized zucchini (including peel)
  • 1/2 of a medium-sized cooked and peeled beetroot
  • Added sweetener of choice (pitted medjool dates or coconut nectar would work well)
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Toppings (for mine I chose pepitas, chia seeds, dried black mission figs, fresh plum, and a chopped up Simple Squares bar)

Method:

  1. In a high-powered blender add ingredients in the order listed. Blend on high until everything is very well incorporated. Taste and adjust sweetness level.
  2. Pour into a bowl and add toppings of choice! I love chia seeds and pepitas for crunch, some fresh fruit, and added nuts or chopped up plant-based bars for healthy fats.
