Have you tried an acai bowl yet? It’s something of a cross between a smoothie and a fruit salad and a parfait, powered by the superfood acai berry in puree form, and growing in popularity all over the place. I recently became obsessed with them at a Portland juice bar called Kure. Pricey treat habit, though, so I naturally endeavored to start making them at home instead.

The recipe here is just a template, of course! If you don’t have acai, just substitute another 1/4 cup berries, and experiment with whatever else you like. For the crunchy granola topping, you can obviously make your own, or any store-bought kind you like. Lots of great gluten-free options out there these days; I especially like Steve’s Paleo Krunch. Enjoy for breakfast, or a hearty snack, or even dessert.
