Summer of Açaí

by team obé

The obé fam has a new obéssesion – post-workout açaí bowls! We rounded up 5 recipes that are lower in sugar, but still pack that summer flavor. 

*Be sure to always buy unsweetened açaí packs since açaí is naturally sweet! Our favorite is Sambazon or the packs you’ll find in the freezer section at Trader Joe’s* 

The Original Açaí

Ingredients:

  • 1 frozen packet unsweetened açaí
  • 1 frozen banana (pro trick: to keep even lower in sugar & carbs, do 1/2 of a banana and supplement with some frozen steamed cauliflower! You’ll get the same thick consistency!) 
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries of choice (wild blueberries pack even more antioxidants, if you can find them!)
  • milk of choice (if nut milk, use unsweetened)
  • optional: vanilla protein powder

Toppings:

  • 1 tsbp raw nuts or nut butter (if nut butter, look for ones that have no added sugar)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup mixed berries
  • shredded unsweetened coconut
  • low-sugar granola (we love Purely Elizabeth!)

Directions:

  1. Blend açaí, banana, berries & milk until smooth
  2. Pour into bowl and decorate with toppings of choice!
  3. Snap a photo and share with the obé fam!
