You guys know how I’m all about that smoothie bowl life! ESPECIALLY during the summertime. And 10x especially when I’m 30 weeks pregnant and dealing with Oklahoma summers. Anyone feelin’ me, here?
This Strawberry Acai Smoothie Bowl recipe is the best for these hot weather days and I just know that you guys will absolutely love it!
Why make a smoothie bowl and not a regular smoothie?
I’ve had a lot of questions about smoothie bowls lately. Specifically: WHY. Why a smoothie bowl? Why not just go regular smoothie?
I love a regular ‘ol mix n’ go smoothie. They’re convenient and quick, and loaded with nutrition. However, smoothie bowls are great because some people enjoy eating their breakfast instead of drinking it and because it’s a little bit thicker than a regular smoothie, which means that healthy toppings can be added (like granola, fresh fruit, shredded coconut, chia seeds, goji berries, sliced almonds, and honey)!
So while those are my reasons for smoothie bowls, you could easily make this into a regular smoothie by using less of the yogurt and adding in a little bit of juice. Either way, this Strawberry Acai Smoothie Bowl is a total win!
Here’s how to make this Strawberry Acai Smoothie Bowl:
The main thing that you’ll need in order to make this Strawberry Acai Smoothie Bowl recipe is frozen Acai! My absolute fave acai packs for smoothies and smoothie bowls are the Sambazon Açaí Performance Protein Superfruit Packs. In this case, I used the Açaí Berry + Protein + Strawberry flavor and it was sooooooo good! I’m loving that they’re organic, loaded with protein, and filled with antioxidants and omegas. You can grab these at several grocery stores or purchase them here!
Pro tips for making this Strawberry Acai Smoothie Bowl recipe:
- I used greek yogurt in this recipe, but it can easily be made vegan just by replacing the yogurt with a vegan yogurt option!
- You can thicken or thin out this smoothie bowl simply by adjusting the amount of yogurt. More yogurt will thin it out, less will thicken it!
