In Santa Barbara, we rented the top floor of a large and lavish house only a few blocks from the beach. After having spent the previous weeks in shabby motels, we felt like a royal family up there. The owner was an artist of some kind and she agreed to let us stay there for a very low rent. Often on our travels, people are surprisingly kind to us. It must be the baby in the pushchair that helps soften their hearts. In a back alley, only a short walk from the house, we found a café where all the cool kids hung out. The café served an array of purple açaí bowls that we soon learned were both delicious and very healthy. After leaving Santa Barbara and continuing down south, we started stocking up on frozen açaí pulp and making our own bowls whenever we had access to a kitchen. In Sweden (and many parts of the world) frozen açaí is both hard to find and very expensive so nowadays we make our bowls with açaí powder and other kinds of frozen berries. It can be found in most health food stores.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300g frozen strawberries, slightly thawed
2 frozen bananas, sliced
4 tablespoons acai powder
250ml unsweetened almond milk
2 tablespoons nut or seed butter
or 2 tablespoons plant-based protein powders
or 2 tablespoons nuts or seeds, soaked

Topping

Quantity Ingredient
fresh fruit, sliced
hemp seeds
bee pollen
goji berries
clear honey, optional

Method

  1. Place the frozen fruits, açaí powder and milk in a strong high-speed blender. Add the nut butter, protein powder or soaked nuts or seeds, if using. Mix until creamy and smooth. Aim for a frozen yoghurt consistency. If you do not have a strong high-speed blender, use a hand blender and mix in a tall jug. Spoon the açai mixture into bowls and top with sliced fruit, hemp seeds, bee pollen, goji berries and a drizzle of honey, if using. Serve immediately.
