Açaí Bowl

I have read a lot about açaí bowls in magazines and on Pinterest, so I finally tried one at a local cafe. It was cool, refreshing and (best of all) healthy! It didn’t look too hard to make at home, so I decided to give it a try. While looking at various recipes online, I came across Sambazon açaí smoothie packs. The frozen puree, which can be found at Whole Foods, makes for a tasty treat that can be made in minutes. The açaí mixture is blended like a smoothie and then topped with your favorite fruits and granola. The colorful concoction is a simple summer snack!

Below are some variations from fellow bloggers that I look forward to trying:
