Smoothie Bowls are also known as Açaí na tigela (“açaí in the bowl”). It is a Brazilian dish made with frozen açaí palm fruit, which is mashed. It is served as a smoothie in a bowl and traditionally topped with other seasonal fruits and granola.
Flavour combinations are endless, and even includes fruit and vegetable combos too. In fact it is a good idea to sneak in a vegetable or two for those picky eaters in the family. The idea is to mix smooth, silky, crunchy, sweet, sour, cold and hot all into one delicious smoothie bowl.
