There are a lot of versions of the Acai Bowl. Basically it is frozen acai puree combined in a blender with a few other ingredients until smooth and topped with fruit and granola. Acai is a fruit from South America that we only get in frozen puree form. You can find acai in the freezer section of a health food store where the frozen fruit is. It is delicious and 10 times higher in antioxidants than red grapes. It has the highest antioxidant rating of any fruit, in fact and it is naturally low in sugar.
