Acai smoothie base

  • 2 packets Frozen açaí berries (200g total)
  • 1 cup Frozen banana slices
  • 1 cup Frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup Frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup Apple juice



  • Run the 2 packets of frozen açaí under hot water for about 1-2 minutes. Once it softens a little, remove it from the package and place it straight into the blender.
  • Then add 1 cup frozen bananas, 1 cup frozen raspberries, 1 cup frozen blueberries, and 1/2 cup apple juice.
  • Place the lid on, and pulse at high speed until the frozen fruit is blended into a smooth consistency. Tip: if the fruit seems to get stuck and doesn’t want to blend, use a spoon or spatula to mix things around and continue blending again.
  • Now pour the blended açaí smoothie into a large bowl and top with your favorite toppings. I love to use freshly sliced bananas, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, mango, granola, unsweetened coconut, honey, and almond butter. But you can use any fruit/nuts/seeds that you like. Bonus tip: you can blend the smoothie together and freeze it for later. Just allow about 20 minutes to thaw slightly.



  • Melt the acai packets just a little- Use running water to melt the acai pack just enough to open and empty it into the blender. Don't over-melt it or your acai bowl will be too thin.
  • Mix the frozen fruit if they get stuck- Using a spoon or spatula, mix the fruit until it blends more easily. You can also scrape the sides of the blender to fully combine everything.
  • Use a powerful blender- A high-powered blender will have the strength to break down the frozen fruit so your Acai Bowl is smooth and creamy throughout.
  • Make extra- This recipe is a great make-ahead meal. You can double the recipe and store extras in the freezer for the week.
