Ok, so it’s a big claim, but this really could be the Best Acai Bowl recipe we’ve tried so far. Nadia Damaso’s offering is bursting with tropical fruits and a delicious cruch – we can’t get enough.

Serves 1-2  (depends how hungry you are)


For the crunch:

6tbsp amaranth or quinoa puffs

2tbsp crushed almonds

1.5tbsp pure maple syrup

1tsp vanilla extract

¼tsp cinnamon

1tsp maca powder (not Matcha)

For the bowl:

2-3 frozen acai puree sachets

½ ripe medium papaya

½ very ripe mango

1 frozen banana

150ml almond milk

2tsp maca powder

1tsp vanilla extract

¼tsp cinnamon

1tbsp coconut blossom sugar

For the Crunch

Add amaranth puffs up to and including the maca powder into a large frying pan, stir until well combined and turn up the heat to medium.

Stir from time to time and toast until golden brown for about 6-8 minutes.

Take off the heat, add into a bowl to let cool. (once it’s cooled down it will be crunchy. For even better results, roast almonds before in the oven at 160 C for 10-15 min).

For the Smoothie

Take the frozen acai sachets and bananas out of the freezer and thaw. Put the acia, papaya, mango, frozen banana and coconut blossom sugar into your blender, and blend until smooth and creamy. Spoon into bowls and top with amaranth, almond crunch, and other toppings of your choice to make it fruity, crunchy and colourful! Enjoy and eat slowly you don’t want finish this bowl too quickly.
