Cacao Açaí Bowl

Cacao + açaí make a pretty good combination in these fruity bowls! The cacao coconut flakes are quick and easy to make and can be used in all plant-based desserts - my children love them!


Cacao Coconut Flakes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of coconut flakes

  • 1 tbs coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

  1. Place the coconut flakes into a bowl and coat with the coconut oil.

  4. Bake for about 10 - 15 minutes or until crisp.

Cacao Acai Bowl

Ingredients

  • 3 packs @amazoniaco frozen organic pure açaí
  • 1 tbs cacao powder
  • Enough coconut water for blending

Note: Additional sweeteners such as pure maple or dates can be added but I find the spotty ripe bananas and coconut water are sweet enough already.

Method

  1. Place all ingredients into the blender and leave to defrost slightly for a few minutes.
  2. Blend all ingredients until smooth (you will probably need to use a blending stick and adjust coconut water as needed).
  3. Spoon into the açaí into bowls and top with fresh fruit and cacao coconut flakes.
