Keto Acai Bowl (Smoothie Bowl)
This Low Carb Acai Smoothie Bowl is not only pretty to look at, but good for you too! It’s the perfect low carb fruity breakfast you’ve been missing, minus all the sugar and carbs. This bowl is a great source of fat too, making it good for the keto diet.
Servings: 2 servings
Acai smoothie base:
- 2.5 ounces full fat coconut milk (or more for a softer acai base)
- 36 grams granular erythritol (or keto sweetener of choice)
- 30 grams unsweetened whey protein (about one scoop, and you can use any preferred protein powder)
- 15 grams peanut butter powder (about 2 tablespoons, and you can use any nut butter of choice)
- 200 grams unsweetened acai puree (about 2 packages)
- 8 ounces frozen mixed berries (we used low carb berries - raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries and cherries)
- 10 grams mixed fresh berries
- 10 grams hemp hearts
- 10 grams slivered almonds
- 3 grams unsweetened coconut chips
- Ice (if needed to thicken)
Add all ingredients for the acai smoothie base to the blender, with the frozen ingredients being added last. Blend until smooth, using a tampering tool if necessary to completely blend the mixture. Add ice and/or liquid to achieve desired texture.
Put acai mixture into bowls and then top with desired toppings. Enjoy!
Enjoy right away for best results. Refrigerate for up to 2.5 hours or freeze the smoothie base mixture for up to 6 months, and reblend when time to serve.
- For best results, thaw acai puree gently to remove it easily from the package. You can also break it into small blocks so it blends easier.
- Prepare your toppings before preparing the smoothie base so you can quickly top then enjoy the bowl.
- Please note, this bowl is perfect for customization to fit your specific needs. Because of this, making alterations to the provided serving suggestion will alter the nutrition facts, so please track your intake accordingly.
- The net carbs on this bowl are slightly higher to fit a keto diet at 15 grams, but, we routinely fit this in as a part of our breakfasts because of the awesome nutrient profile, source of fiber, fat, and flavor. If you're strictly counting carbs, you can keep your carbs low the rest of your meals to fit this in. :)
