After a couple trips this summer with friends I was finally introduced to the amazing Açaí bowl! Since I haven't come across any places near me that sell these (probably a good thing), I decided to try making my own (definitely a better thing) and they are too awesome not to share! The main ingredient you need to find is the frozen Açaí packets. I found the Sambazon Superfruit Pack (Unsweetened) at my local natural and organic food market. I have also seen these packs at Wegman's and their website lists that they are sold at Whole Food's, Costco, Safeway, and a few other stores. Trader Joe's also sells Unsweetened Organic Açaí Purée Packets, which is another good and unsweetened option. Anyways, once you have that you can blend it with any frozen or unfrozen fruits to get your base. Then, all you need to do is top it with your favorite ingredients! I made my own Rawnola to top this with and provided that recipe below. If you do not feel like making your own Rawnola, here are a few options you can purchase that I have come across:
