You’ve probably heard of acai bowls, but have you ever tried making one? If not, then this article is just for you. In it I will be going over the steps to make a delicious bowl of acai in your Ninja blender!

Can A Ninja Blender Make Acai Bowls?

Although Ninja blenders are not specifically made to make acai bowls, they still work perfectly. Acai is mostly blended frozen fruit so the Ninja works best, but it can be done in any blender.

How To Make An Acai Bowl In A Ninja Blender

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

This step is fairly simple; all you need is frozen or fresh fruit, some honey (or other sweetener), and of course the acai berry puree. I recommend starting with 2 cups of water for every cup of acai puree so you can adjust according to taste.

An important thing to focus on while gathering ingredients is the quality. Make sure all of your fruit is ripe. Mangoes that are not ripe will never be palatable, same with any other fruit.

As far as the acai goes you want to make sure it’s organic and unsweetened – it isn’t very tasty if there are sweeteners in it!

Step 2: Prep Your Fruit & Acai For A Ninja Blender

First, cut your fruit into small cubes about an inch big.

Second, place all of your ingredients into the acai blender along with one cup of water for every cup of acai puree. Make sure everything is placed in the bottom then turn on low speed.

After this, slowly start to increase the speed until you reach high – this should take around 5 minutes. And you’re done!

The finished product should be thick, but not too thick. If it is too thick then simply add more water until desired consistency is reached.

Step 3: Enjoy Your Delicious Acai Bowl!

Now that your bowl is done it’s time to enjoy it! There are countless options for what toppings to use so have fun picking out your favourite combinations. Every topping taste better in an acai bowl so don’t be afraid to experiment.

Some popular choices are shredded coconut, almonds, bananas, mangos, strawberries and blueberries – the list goes on!

All in all making acai bowls in your Ninja blender is quite simple. Just follow these three easy steps and you will have yourself a healthy, delicious snack in just a minute!

Tips For Making A Delicious Acai Bowl

Here are a few things to keep in mind while making your acai bowl:

If the acai puree is cold when blending then you shouldn’t need any ice cubes or additional frozen fruit! This will just dampen the taste of the acai since freezing food isn’t good for flavor.

Remember that with most types of purees, especially with berries, every brand tastes different. Just because one brand doesn’t do well in your Ninja blender doesn’t mean another won’t.

As long as you follow the steps above, along with some of these tips, you should end up with a delicious acai bowl!
