Açai bowl

For sure you have seen several beautifully decorated açai bowls on your Instagram feed. Did you know that açai (a-sa-ie) is a small dark berry that grows in large clusters on the açai palm in and around Brazil. This small exotic fruit is a great source of important nutrients and antioxidants. Closer to home, you can find the berry in powdered and in pulp (frozen) form. We are big fans of the frozen version.

    Do you have time to turn it into a festive breakfast? Then you can finish it off with e.g. coconut rind, poppy seeds, slices banana, strawberries, raspberries, .... or even colourful fresh edible flowers.


Tip: Adding two tablespoons of Greek yoghurt afterwards is also very tasty. This gives it a soft, almost creamy finsih.
