While acai bowls are relatively new in the United States, they've been a staple in Brazil since, well forever. Acai is a purple berrylike fruit of a palm tree native to Central and South America. It's packed with antioxidants (anthocyanins) and omega-3 fatty acids. We used unsweetened frozen puree, which has a pleasant flavor with slight olive oil notes. Add the traditional toppings and this bowl is loaded with fiber.

Ingredients

Directions

Break the frozen acai up a little by slapping the sealed packets on the countertop or hitting them with a meal mallet. Blend the berries with 1/2 the banana, 1/4 cup of the blueberries and the honey in the blender, stopping to stir and break up the mixture as needed, until it's the consistency of a thick smoothie; transfer to a cereal bowl.

Slice the remaining 1/2 banana. Arrange the slices, the remaining 1/4 cup blueberries, granola, pomegranate seeds and coconut flakes in neat piles or rows on top of the acai. Then take a photo!
