The best solution is to make your own açaí bowl at home. For this super simple, mouth-watering recipe, you can use frozen açaí pulp, or for a more easily available option, I recommend açaí powder which you can order online or buy in a health store. You also have the option to add in a scoop of vanilla protein powder, as much for the nutritional value as for that sweet flavour – my absolute favourite is MyVegan as you’ll know if you follow me on Instagram @elibrechernutrition!

- 1-2 frozen bananas
- 2 tablespoons açaí powder
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries (I like to mix blueberries and raspberries, but strawberries and blackberries work too!)
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (use code ELIBRECHER for 35% off MyVegan protein)
Simply blend everything together until smooth, then get creative with the toppings! My favourite toppings include Eli’s Granola, sliced kiwi, strawberries, pomegranate seeds, cacao nibs and goji berries.
