We know a lot about its health benefits, but a lesser-known fact is acaí has a short shelf-life and isn't sold fresh far from where it's grown. This recipe uses acaí in the form of frozen puree, which is easy to prepare, readily available, and seriously delicious. For this bowl, we blend two packs of pureed acaí with frozen fruit and coconut water (or coconut milk, if you prefer a richer texture) until creamy. Then we pour the smoothie into a bowl and top with fresh fruit, coconut flakes, and granola. It's breakfast, it's lunch, it's an afternoon pick-me-up, it's dessert—it's everything. . Ingredients Smoothie 2 100-gram frozen acaí puree packs ½ frozen banana ½ cup frozen blueberries ½ cup coconut water Topping ½ banana, sliced ¼ cup fresh blueberries 2 tablespoons granola 2 tablespoons toasted coconut chips Directions Run frozen acaí packs under warm water for 10 seconds.
