How to Save $10

Enough is enough!!

Yes, I love a good Açaí Bowl. But I’m tired of paying $10 (or more!) every time I get one. Going forward, I will make my own at home and you can too!

Here’s how:

  1. Purchase frozen açaí at Whole Foods and use a blender to puree it with fresh banana, frozen blueberries and a bit of kefir (cause why not get a little extra probiotic!)
  2. I top it with sliced bananas, toasted unsweetened coconut and crushed almonds
  3. Yum!

Here’s the actual recipe I used but you can make your own:

  • Vary your frozen fruit selection – try strawberries, peaches or even mango
  • Don’t like kefir? Try coconut water, milk (dairy or nut) or even just water
  • Add spinach to make it more nutritious
  • Garnish with anything YOU like!

  • Unsweetened coconut flakes (toasted)
  • Crushed almonds

Method:

  2. Garnish with 1/2 banana (sliced), coconut flakes and almonds
