Acaí, one-inch orbs native to Central and South America, has been having a moment for a couple of decades now, with no end in sight. 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.
