Since there are so many Acai Smoothie BOWL recipes out there, I thought that I would share a super simple Acai Smoothie today. Because it’s Monday and we could all use a little boost.
I’ve been a bit lazy on the smoothie front lately. Now that it’s so hot outside, you’d think I would be drinking cold smoothies ALL the time. However, I have not. I don’t have much of an explanation for this but I ended my very brief smoothie break with this simple and yummy acai smoothie.
I also recently got a new (omg-amazing!) blender courtesy of Vitamix and I’m officially obsessed. I’ve heard people talk about Vitamix’s and I was never really sure if they were actually worth the investment or if it was just another hype kitchen appliance. I had a cheap blender that worked goodnotgreat and I was moderately happy with it. Let me just go ahead and tell you: this blender is AMAZING! I plan on keeping this thing foreverandever.
I’ve also recently discovered this powdered acai which is so much easier than finding and buying the frozen acai packets.
I’ve been able to get a lot of smoothies out of this powder packet and I still have about 1/3 of the pouch left.
Bonus: the acai powder results in a very pretty purple smoothie. I’ve found that it even does a great job of hiding greens in a smoothie (<<<<which is a huge bonus when you’re trying to convince people that green smoothies aren’t completely disgusting just because they’re green).
That’s all for this dreary, rainy Monday. Go make yourself a big ole’ smoothie and start the week off right! Do it!!
- 4 tablespoons of acai powder
- 2 frozen bananas (you could get away with only one)
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds
- 1 cup of liquid (I typically use water or almond milk)
- Blend together all of the ingredients in a blender.
- ENJOY! :D
