Scrumptious Acai Bowl

What you need: 

1 1/2 packs acai (buy it in the frozen section of health food store)
1 cup mixed berries (I use frozen raspberries, blueberries and marionberries, use whatever!)
1/4 cup apple juice
1/4 cup soy milk (add small amounts to this if there's not enough liquid)
1 banana
1 cup vanilla almond granola (optional)

What you do: 

Throw all ingredients (except granola) into a blender and puree. It tastes much better when it's nice and smooth, but still thick enough to eat with a spoon. You can have it as a smoothie, or line the bottom of a bowl with granola, pour the acai mix over the top, then throw on another handful of granola and a sliced up banana on top. Enjoy!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Just letting you know Booster Juice sells something just like this.

Jamba Juice does too. I used to get it before I went gluten-free.

-sigh-  i am always left drooling over acai recipes,but no matter, i've looked high,i've looked low,  and can NOT find acai berries by themselves in any form. The closest i can get is this acai blueberry drinks my whole foods sells, which are delish but i bet don't come anywhere near a food form.

this is purely imao, but I am assuming the acaí berriey doesn't transport well/ or has a short fresh life span b/c I've never seen actual berries, not even frozen ones.  I have only seen frozen packets of pureéd acaí (sometimes refered to as a smoothie packet), and then only at the 'natural' grocers/ health food stores.  I have seen numerous sellers of the pureé on the net though, maybe you could buy it that way.  But don't fret, with the growing popularity of acaí, I'm sure a retailer near you will stock it soon, or you could try asking for your local wholefoods store to carry it.

Wow, booster juice has an awesome little flash website.  It's fun to check out http://www.boosterjuice.com/.  There aren't any Booster Juices anywhere near me, but I have seen quite a few other vendors selling very similar Acai bowls too.  I like the idea of having a little packet in my freezer that I can eat with my fav granola without having to tote a toddler anywhere to enjoy a delish acai bowl  ;)

I love Acai (it's so good for you too), especially with granola.  Can't wait to try this recipe.
