Prefer something alittle more filling? Perhaps a new breakfast routine? Why not try an Acai Bowl.

  • Blend – In a blender add fruit juice for a tropical taste or milk such as coconut or soy, for a creamier flavour to 100g of Acai Berry. Add chopped fruit, yoghurt for a thicker texture.
  • Pour – In Summer, the Acai blend will melt quickly, add some chopped fruit to the bottom of your bowl to prevent melting.
  • Top – Our favourite part! Use chopped nuts or cereals for a breakfast vibe. Fresh fruits like blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, bananas, kiwifruit or mango. Have a sweet tooth? Why not add some coconut shreds, cacao drops, a drizzle of honey or even chocolate coated fruit!
