How to Make the Perfect Acai Bowl | South Wake Raleigh Moms

Feb 1, 2019 | Recipes

Is anyone else obsessed with the acaí trend these days? Acaí (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) is not only yummy, it’s good for you too. The acaí berry is a superfood that hails from the South American rainforest. It is full of antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients, as well as being low in calories.
Acaí bowls has become a favorite in the Raleigh area thanks to the amazing food truck Buoy Bowls. But if you’re in a pinch or want to save some cash, try one out for yourself. Kids love it too!
Here’s what you will need for your acaí bowl:



  • Frozen acaí (We use 2 packets of Samazon Organic Acaí)
  • 1/4 cup or less of apple juice
  • 1/2 banana
  • Strawberries
  • 1 tsp peanut or almond butter
  • Blueberries, shredded coconut, nutella, honey, granola, or other desired toppings


3 Easy Steps


  • Thaw the frozen acaí packets in a bowl or warm water for 1-2 minutes as directed on package
  • Blend the first 5 ingredients until smooth
  • Pour the mixture in a bowl
  • Top with desired ingredients
  • Enjoy!



It’s as simple as that!

We hope you’ll love acaí bowls as much as our family.
