Helpful hints

  • Açaí (pronounced ah-sigh-EE) berries are from a South American palm tree. These berries are rich in antioxidants and make a great addition to smoothies.
  • Make the acai bowl your own by adding your favorite toppings such as chopped pineapple, unsweetened coconut flakes, cacao nibs or granola cereal.
  • Use fresh or frozen raspberries and blueberries for topping.
  • This recipe may be tart. For sweetness you can add honey, Stevia or your favorite sweetener.
  • Low phosphorus, low potassium milk alternatives such as almond or soy milk can be used in substitution for rice milk.
