RECIPE: acaí bowl
Anything and everything cool or new usually takes a while to make an appearance in Vienna. While I had my first acaí bowl in California years ago and even got lucky in Berlin and Munich last year, I have yet to find one in Vienna. No big deal, I thought, if they don’t offer it, I’ll just make my own. Well, easier said than done. It is fairly easy to find acaí powder, but I wanted the frozen pack for the real deal. Today I finally got lucky at an organic grocery store on Margaretenstraße in my neighborhood. Making your own acaí bowl is actually super easy and I simply added some coconut water, fresh banana and ice cubes to the blender. Et voila! With only about 67 kcal per 100gr of frozen acaí (= 1 pack), it is a super healthy way to start your day and actually keeps you full for a while! Even though I am still hoping to find a great acaí bowl in Vienna sooner rather than later (recommendations welcome!), I know what I’ll be having for breakfast for the rest of the week…
What you’ll need:
– 1 pack of frozen acaí
– 150 ml coconut water
– 1 banana
– ice cubes (if desired)
– toppings: goji berries, chia seeds, granola, fresh fruit, coconut shavings …
Toss the frozen acaí into the blender with the coconut water, banana and ice cubes. Blend on high until smooth. Pour into a bowl and serve with desired toppings. Enjoy!
PS. Looking for frozen acaí in Vienna? I can recommend the Denn’s Bio Supermarkt, which is where I got mine.
