Acai bowl

Acai Bowl topped with banana, hemp seeds, kiwi fruit and a strawberry

Erin Dwyer - Research Dietitian, 01 April 2019

Our most requested food has now been tested and is in the app - Acai Powder, and the best news is - it is low FODMAP! 

The most common way to eat acai powder at the moment is in a 'smoothie bowl' which is basically a thick smoothie you can eat with a spoon, decorated with toppings of your choice. Buying these smoothie bowls out can be a minefield though as often they contain lots of fruit and it can be hard to gauge whether it is low FODMAP or not, so here is one we have created for you so you can make it at home! 

Ingredients 

  • 2 Tbsp (40g) Acai Powder (make sure the one you buy does not contain inulin)
  • 33g of Raspberries (~15 berries)
  • 1 cup of strawberries
  • 1 handful of baby spinach 
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice (we used almond milk) - you may need a little extra if your smoothie is too thick
  • 1 tsp Maple syrup (optional, use if it isn't sweet enough)

To top 

  • 1/3 ripe banana, sliced
  • 1/2 kiwi fruit, sliced
  • 1 tsp desiccated coconut 
  • 1 tsp hemp seeds (you could also use chia seeds)
  • 1 tsp natural Peanut Butter (optional, but tasty!)


Method

  1. Add all the smoothie ingredients into a blender and slowly add the milk until it is at the right consistency 
  2. Pour into a bowl and decorate with the toppings as you like
