Best Acai Bowl Toppings 1

Açaí Bowl (V, GF Option)

I love Hawai’i, it’s one of my favourite places in the whole world. I love the breathtaking nature there, the amazing sunrises and sunsets. While there I discovered their açaí bowls and I kind of became obsessed with them. I had a period in my life after my first visit to Hawai’i when I ate açaí bowls every day.

The smoothie part of açai bowl is made with frozen açaí, frozen banana, frozen berries and almond milk. For toppings I suggest those that I always chose in Hawai’i when they were available. I like my açaí bowl topped with fresh banana, granola, different fresh berries, dried goji berries, desiccated coconut and almond butter.

During my last visit to Hawai’i I came upon Kula bowls in Big Island which served the most amazing açaí bowls. One of the things they did differently is they used wild blueberries that were so much better in taste than regular ones. If you can get your hands on wild blueberries, do add them to your açaí bowl.

Açai smoothie:

  • 1 (100g) frozen açaí pack
  • 60 g (half a) frozen banana
  • 60 g frozen blueberries
  • 60 g frozen strawberries
  • 1 medjool date optional
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) unsweetened almond milk

Suggested toppings:

  • a few slices of fresh banana
  • a handful of fresh strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries
  • a generous sprinkle of your favourite granola make sure it's vegan; gluten free if needed
  • a sprinkle of dried goji berries
  • a sprinkle of desiccated coconut
  • almond butter


  • Put all ingredients for the smoothie in a blender and mix. Press down with the stick so that the mixture becomes smooth and there are no chunks of fruit left.
  • Transfer the smoothie into a bowl.
  • Decorate the top of the smoothie with desired toppings. Add more or less depending on your preference.


*If you buy frozen açaí pack that’s already sweetened then you don’t need to add a medjool date to the smoothie part. I find that unsweetened frozen açaí pack does need a little bit of sweetness added but you can also skip it, if you like it without the sweetener.
*If you can get your hands on wild blueberries, use those instead of regular ones.
*Make sure to use banana that is ripe enough so that it adds a nice sweet taste.
