Dairy Free Acai Bowl Recipe Ingredients

To make a healthy acai bowl without yogurt, milk, or any other kind of dairy, you can use a mix of frozen and fresh fruit along with acai powder and a milk alternative. Here’s what we like to use in our easy dairy-free smoothie bowl recipe:

  • Frozen strawberries
  • Bananas
  • Freeze-dried acai powder
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • Unsweetened almond milk
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Peanut butter granola

You’ll use the frozen strawberries, fresh banana, acai powder, peanut butter, and almond milk to make the smoothie bowl base. The creamy peanut butter and frozen strawberries help keep the smoothie thick, without the need for yogurt.

For toppings, we like to add fresh sliced strawberries, sliced banana, and peanut butter granola (specifically KIND clusters – so delicious). But you can get creative here and top your smoothie bowl with whatever fresh fruit, grains, and other flavors you love! Keep reading for a few recommendations on what to use for smoothie bowl toppings below.

Note: If you can’t find acai powder at your local grocery store, you can purchase it on Amazon here!

How To Make A Dairy Free Acai Smoothie Bowl

It’s super easy to make a healthy acai smoothie bowl at home, as long as you have a powerful blender. Here’s how to do it in just 3 steps:

  1. Add frozen strawberries, banana, acai powder, peanut butter, and almond milk to the blender.
  2. Pulse a few times to break up the strawberries, then blend at low speed to start, increasing speed to medium and/or pulsing intermittently as needed until the smoothie is creamy and thick.
  3. Transfer smoothie to bowls and top with fresh strawberries, banana, and peanut butter granola.

Depending on how powerful your blender is, you may need to give the smoothie a stir every once in a while during blending in case any frozen chunks of strawberry get stuck in the blades. Just make sure to turn the blender off – or even better, unplug it – before reaching in there with a spoon!

Tip: Some blenders (like this one) have a smoothie or milkshake button that can help blend thicker mixtures like these acai bowls. Sometimes this setting works wonders on its own, or used in combination with some occasional pulsing and stirring.

Acai Bowl Topping Suggestions

One of the things we love most about healthy smoothie bowls is that you can completely customize the toppings depending on what you’re in the mood for! Fresh fruit, crunchy toppings like granola, and a drizzle of something nutty or sweet taste great together on an acai bowl and provide an interesting mix of flavors and textures.

Here are a few suggestions for what to put on top of your dairy free acai bowl:

  • Fresh fruit – strawberries, banana, blueberries, mango, pineapple, goji berries
  • Crunchy toppings – granola, coconut shreds, cacao nibs, hemp seeds
  • Condiments – peanut butter, almond butter, honey

Don’t let yourself be limited by this list, though – there are tons more superfoods and smoothie bowl topping ideas you can try using our base smoothie recipe! Get creative and let us know in the comments what your favorite flavor combos are.
