Acai Smoothie Bowl

We keep seeing mouth-watering images of smoothie bowls out there, using our organic freeze-dried acai berry powder!

Acai berries are extremely rich in antioxidants, amino acids, fatty acids and dietary fiber. Shanti Tea uses freeze-dried organic acai berry powder, the freeze drying process retains most of the fruits nutrients. Plus, having a powder means it can be easily added to smoothies, baked goods, juices and more.

Besides being rich in antioxidants, here are some of the highlights of this superfood!

  • Promotes hearth health  - The antioxidants and plant sterols in acai berries help improve circulation
  • Promotes skin health  - Foods rich in antixoidants promote good good skin health.
  • Aids in digestion - Since acai berries are high in fiber, they help to aid the digestive process. 1 tsp of freeze-dried powder contains about 4% of your recommended daily fiber intake

Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup frozen berries of choice
  • ½ ripe avocado, diced
  • 2 tbsp acai berry powder
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 1 handful nuts or seeds of choice (optional)
  • Sweetener if desired

Directions:
Mix all ingredients with a blender. If needed, add extra almond milk. The consistency should result in a similar texture to frozen yogurt.

Top with your favourite fruits, seeds, nuts, granola, nut butter, or dried foods!

Here are some combinations that we love:

  • Sliced banana, coconut chips, cacao nibs, fresh blueberries, almond butter drizzle
  • Fresh mango, pineapple, peach, pistachios, hemp hearts, coconut flakes
  • Blend maca powder and cacao powder into the smoothie, top with chopped bananas, cacao nibs, hemp hearts, coconut chips and your favourite nuts/seeds
  • Use coconut water instead of almond milk for a lighter and even more refreshing smoothie bowl! We love loading a coconut water smoothie bowl with fresh fruits and a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds.
  • To get in all of our favourite superfoods, add dark leafy greens, beerts, a teaspoon of spirulina, and one tablespoon of maca powder to your smoothie, then top with fresh blueberries, goji berries, slivered almonds, cacao nibs, hemp hearts and any other fresh fruits you desire.
