If you’ve had a great acai bowl, then you know there are few things more refreshing than a perfectly blended bowl of frozen acai and fruit, topped with more fresh fruit, crunchy granola, and miniature chocolate chips.
This Banzai Bowls acai bowl recipe is inspired by our favorite place in the world to get a fantastic acai bowl, Banzai Bowls in orange county and Hawaii. Nothing here is pre-made (you might have to wait a little longer than you’re hoping!), but the end result is always so satisfying.
We developed this copycat recipe so that you could successfully create the perfect acai bowl consistency from your own kitchen. Start with the specified quantities for frozen fruit and liquid. If your acai bowl is too thick, add a little bit of liquid so that your mixture will blend more easily. If you add too much, it may turn your acai bowl into a smoothie. Too thin? Add more frozen fruit or ice to thicken up your bowl base.
