Homemade Acai Bowl (Vegan)

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

I am obsessed with Acai Bowls, I have it at least twice a week, or sometimes even more! (Some call me an Acai Addict haha). I usually get my Acai fix at Project Acai @ Takashimaya or An Acai Affair @ Katong! Both places are definitely my go to places! I did a short review on An Acai Affair so please do check it out! But for now, let me just share with you this quick, healthy, vegan and easy Acai Bowl recipe.

Ingredients:

2 Sambazon Original Blend Packets

3 table spoons of coconut water

1/2 Banana

Handful of frozen spinach

Toppings: Fresh Seasonal Fruit (I used Mangoes and kiwis), Rolled Oats and Chia Seeds. However, granola, coconut flakes, hemp seeds and bananas make really great toppings as well!

How To Make It: 

Put everything in the blender (make sure to break up the packs), blend until really thick/smooth – adding more coconut water/non dairy milk if necessary – then pour into a bowl and top with all the endless toppings you want! If it is too watery, put it in the freezer for about 15 minutes before consuming.

Where Can I Get It: 

I got my the frozen Acai packets from Project Acai @ Takashimaya, Ngee Ann City. They have a whole fridge dedicated to all things Acai/take home Acai packets. They even have Acai Ice Cream! Bare in mind that they don’t give any dry ice and it needs to be in a freezer back home safest within 40 to 45 minutes.

Yumz in my tumz!

What is Acai? How does it taste like? What’s so good about it?

Acai (AH-SIGH-EE), an anti-inflammatory and high-antioxidant super berry. Acai bowls are definitely one of my ALL TIME FAVOURITE foods to eat. I can even have it as a meal replacement because it’s just so wholesome and always leaves me feeling amazing. It tastes a tad bit like tons of berries being mixed together into one concoction. It is on the sweeter side and is usually of an icy/thick smoothie texture. It is usually topped with endless of “good for you” kinda toppings such as cocoa nibs, fruits, granola, coconut shavings, chia/flax/pumpkin seeds and goji berries etc.

There are currently quite a few places in Singapore serving Acai Bowls and the new kid on the block; An Acai Affair is one place you got to check out! Located along East Coast Road/somewhere really close to my place, I was so excited when I found out that an acai place was opening nearby.

Walked in and was pleasantly greeted by the two staff present. They were both so cheerful and eager to serve. The menu was surprisingly interesting and I had a pretty tough choice choosing what I wanted. I ordered the Acai Bowl in the medium sized cup. I had toppings such as granola, coconut shavings, chia seeds, fruits and peanut butter! There was even one on the menu that really caught my eye, it was an Acai Bowl in a coconut husk! Will definitely try that out the next time I head back. They even have a secret garden at the back that has a very tumblr-ish and bohemian look with mandala tapestry lying around. I would totally enjoy my Acai Bowl out there but with such humidity in Singapore, it was way too hot to do so… My Acai Bowl would have melted away instantly! But still, it was a nice area to take some nice pictures!

Head down to An Acai Affair to get your Acai fix covered and when you’re there, be ready to take tons of instagram-worthy pictures and explore around the area! There are many other great food places around to explore such as Birds of Paradise, Island Creamery and 328 Katong Laksa.

This was taken at their secret garden, a really cozy and boho looking area! It was too humid for me to be seated outdoors though… My acai would have melted away haha!
