I know, I know! I took way too long to try the uber trendy açaí bowl, but once I did, well, I became obsessed. Since it’s price tag is normally on the high side, and I don’t have a place near me that would service my newly-found obsession, I decided to search online for some do-it-at-home recipes. After attempting a few yummy options, I finally perfected my personal fave… below 🙂

 

A little about the açaí fruit:

The açaí berry is very similar to that of a grape. It is sweet in taste, are high in antioxidants, fiber and healthy fats. It is indigenous to Brazilian rainforests and since the fruit has a very short shelf life, you can’t find it fresh in stores. But you can probably find it in puree form in the freezer section of your local grocery store (Publix carries it).

¡Lo sé, lo sé! Me tomé demasiado tiempo para probar el súper conocido açaí bowl, pero una vez que lo hice, bueno, me obsesioné. Debido a que su precio suele ser alto y no tengo un lugar cerca de mí que pueda proporcionar mi obsesión recién descubierta, decidí buscar en línea algunas recetas para hacer en casa. Después de intentar algunas opciones deliciosas, finalmente perfeccioné mi favorito… a continuación 🙂

 

Un poco sobre la fruta de açaí:

La fruta de açaí es muy similar a la de una uva. Es dulce en sabor, es alta en antioxidantes, fibra y grasas saludables. Es indígena de las selvas tropicales brasileñas y cómo la fruta tiene una vida muy corta, no se puede encontrar fresca en las tiendas. Pero probablemente pueden encontrarla en forma de puré en la sección de alimentos congelados de su supermercado local (Publix lo tiene).
