When I’m not making myself avocado toast (with lots of chili flakes!) for breakfast, an acai bowl is my absolute go-to. Both breakfasts are super quick and easy and incredibly tasty.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably see me posting a plethora of breakfast pictures where acai bowls make a regular appearance. I’ve had a few people ask me how I make mine, so I wanted to share a very quick recipe that you can incorporate into your routine today.
- 1 packet of Sambazon acai mixture
- Fruit of your choice (I use raspberries, blueberries, and usually bananas but I had just run out on this day!)
- Almond milk (I use Califia)
- Granola (I use Purely Elizabeth – any of their flavours is amazing for this bowl)
- Honey (or any sweetener of your choice)
- Flax seeds
- Coconut chips
- Anything else your heart desires!
I first mix the Sambazon and almond milk together in a separate dish to ensure they mix well.
My bowl is first prepped with the Purely Elizabeth granola as the base.

I then pour in the acai mixture before topping with all my favourite fruits.
Coconut chips give the bowl a unique texture when crunching down between the juicy blueberries, seedy raspberries and all the other combined textures. The same can be said for the flaxseeds on top!
Honey has always been my sweetener of choice, but there are so many other natural sweeteners that compliment this bowl well.
Finally, I like to finish my bowl off with some ground flaxseed for some omega-3 fatty acids.
I’ve seen some incredibly glamorous and delicious-looking acai bowls on the web that you should definitely go check out (like Earth Andy’s version here which is much thicker than mine and a typical smoothie base). For now, mine is an incredibly simple, easy, appliance-free, and satisfying acai bowl as an alternative to other sweet breakfast choices.
I hope you found this easy to follow and you give it a try next time you’re in the mood for a fresh breakfast or mid-afternoon pick-me-up like I often tend to do. This is truly the best meal alternative when you’re feeling lazy!
