BEHIND THE HOMEPAGE: EASY ACAI BOWLS
I was quick to hop on the acai bowl train as soon as I moved to San Diego. If you're not hip to this superfood breakfast trend (have they hit Chicago yet?), it's essentially frozen acai berry puree blended with some type of milk or apple juice until it reaches a gelato-type texture, topped with different combinations of fruit, granola and honey. I've had bad ones and good ones, and ones that make me think "I spent $8 on that", but have found a few specific bowls that are worth going back to almost every Saturday morning. No matter how good and fresh-fruit-packed these special ones are, I can't help but wonder if I could make the same thing at home. So, I finally tried it, and it was easier than I thought!
What are your favorite bowl toppings? I'm excited to experiment with different variations! Has anyone tried to blend avocado into their acai puree? I put avo in my smoothies, so am thinking it might work here too...
