Hey there, little chefs and parents! Ready to whip up something colorful, delicious, and super healthy? Today, we're making açaí bowls!

Açaí Bowls

Why Açaí Bowls are Awesome

Açaí berries are like tiny superheroes for your body. They are full of antioxidants, which are heart-healthy, may protect against illnesses, and help keep your cells safe from daily damage. Plus, açaí bowls can be an allergy-friendly option for breakfast or brunch – you can easily make them dairy, nut, and egg-free!


What You'll Need for Your Açaí Bowl

You can find açaí packs in the freezer section of your local grocery store. We love using Sambazon açaí superfruit packs. Follow the instructions on the back of the pack to make the base of your bowl. Here's a simple guide to get you started:


Ingredients for the Açaí Bowl Base

  • 1 açaí pack (Sambazon is a great choice!)

  • 1/2 cup of your favorite liquid (we used plain Greek yogurt for added protein)

  • 1/2 cup of frozen fruit or veggies (frozen avocado for healthy fats, spinach for iron and vitamins C & E)


Fun and Tasty Toppings for Açaí Bowls

The best part about açaí bowls is decorating them with all sorts of yummy toppings! Here are some ideas:

  • Fresh Fruit: Strawberries, blueberries, bananas, kiwi, peaches, or pineapple.

  • Crunchy Additions: Granola, toasted coconut, chopped nuts (look for low-sugar granola or make your own!)

  • Sweet Extras: A drizzle of honey (for kids 12 months and older) for digestion, immunity, and extra antioxidants.

  • Super Seeds: Chia seeds for fiber, minerals, omega-3, and more antioxidants.


How to Make Your Açaí Bowl

  1. Prepare the Açaí Base Follow the instructions on your açaí pack. Usually, this means blending the açaí with your liquid of choice and any added frozen fruits or veggies. Let your little ones help by pushing the blender buttons!

  2. Pour and Spread Pour your blended açaí mixture into a bowl. Use a spoon to spread it out evenly.

  3. Get Creative with Toppings This is the fun part! Let your kids help cut up the fruit (with supervision) and arrange the toppings. Encourage them to create fun patterns or faces with the fruit.

  4. Enjoy Your Delicious Creation! Grab a spoon and dig into your colorful, healthy, and super tasty açaí bowl!


Tips for a Fun and Safe Kitchen Experience

  • Safety First: Always supervise kids when using blenders or knives.

  • Clean Hands: Make sure everyone washes their hands before starting.

  • Encourage Creativity: Let your kids pick their favorite toppings and design their bowls however they like.


Açaí bowls are not only a healthy breakfast option but also a wonderful way to spend quality time together in the kitchen. Enjoy making and eating your açaí bowls, little chefs!
