Peanut Butter Acai Bowl

5.30.18

I RUN FOR ACAI…. my favorite motto! Acai bowls will always be my favorite post long run meal! They’re the perfect way to cool off after a sweaty workout or long day in the sun!

When I moved to California in 2014 I had never had an acai bowl. They weren’t popular on the east coast at the time and it was usually too cold to even have one! When I moved to Hermosa Beach I stumbled upon Paradise Bowls. I found myself going there multiple times a week. I loved their bowls but decided it was time to try and make my own.

I love making my own acai bowls at home because I can add whatever ingredients I want. My favorite combo is– frozen acai blended with frozen banana, frozen berries, vanilla protein powder, peanut butter, and almond milk! The key is using all frozen fruit for this recipe- it makes the smoothie super thick! I also add protein powder to aide in muscle recovery after my long runs. I never measure the amount of almond milk I use either, I just start blending until I reach the desired thickness. 

This recipe can easily be switched up and made into a peanut butter pitaya bowl instead! All you have to do is sub a frozen pitaya for the frozen acai pack! Both are found at Whole Foods! I hope you enjoy this bowl as much as I do– I swear it makes me run home SO much faster!
