Acai bowls are so popular, but often come with a pretty hefty price tag. These acai bowls can be made right from home at a fraction of the price! They are a great way to get your little one to practice learning how to use a spoon. The cool sensation is also great for teething babies and soothing those sensitive little gums!

I offered my son Levi an acai bowl for the first time while he was teething and it definitely helped provide some relief to the soreness. It was messy, but well worth the little smile he had on his face while eating it!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Here is what you’ll need to make this healthy acai bowl:

Ingredients to make Acai bowls. See recipe card for detailed ingredient quantities.
  • Acai Puree: The base ingredient for these bowls.
  • Banana: One main source of sweetness for these bowls. Use a ripe banana for the best natural sweetness.
  • Strawberries: Use strawberries that are ripe, sweet, and not sour.
  • Blueberries: Use blueberries that are plump, sweet, and not sour.
  • Milk: Small amount to help the ingredients blend together.

PROCESS

  1. Slice the banana into small coins and add them to a tray with the rest of the fruits. Freeze the fruits for at least one hour before using to help obtain the thick smoothie texture. 
  2. Add the frozen fruits and acai puree to a blender along with the milk. 
  3. Blitz in small increments and open the blender every few seconds to scrape down the sides. Add a little more liquid if needed, but try not to add too much. The small amount of liquid is what helps to get the thick consistency. Continue to blend in increments until smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture into a bowl and top with fruits and desired toppings!

SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Milk: The milk may be replaced with a dairy free alternative such as oat milk or coconut milk.
  • Acai puree: If you cannot find frozen acai puree, you may substitute it with more frozen berries for a berry smoothie bowl.

RECIPE NOTES

  • Try to serve this acai bowl as soon as possible as it melts quickly.
  • If your mixture seems too watery, add in a few more frozen bananas to help thicken it.
  • I love using this nutribullet blender to blend the fruits easily!
  • If you are topping the smoothie with granola, be sure not to use granola that contains honey for babies under the age of 1.
