Serves: 1
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: No cooking required

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 ½  Tbsp acai powder (make sure the one you buy does not contain inulin)

40 g 1.41 oz

~15 raspberries

33 g 1.16 oz

1 cup strawberries

145 g 5.11 oz

½ cup baby spinach

25 g 0.88 oz

½ cup milk of your choice (we used almond milk) - you may need a little extra if your smoothie is too thick

120 g 4.23 oz

1 tsp maple syrup (optional, use if it isn't sweet enough)

6 g 0.21 oz

⅓ ripe banana, sliced

35 g 1.2 oz

½ kiwi fruit, sliced

38 g 1.34 oz

1 tsp desiccated coconut

2 g 0.07 oz

1 tsp hemp seeds (you could also use chia seeds)

2.5 g 0.1 oz

1 tsp natural Peanut Butter (optional, but tasty)

6 g 0.2 oz

Method

  1. Add acai powder, raspberries, strawberries, spinach, milk and maple syrup to a blender and slowly add the milk until it is at the right consistency 

  2. Pour into a bowl and decorate with the banana, kiwi fruit, coconut, hemp seeds and peanut butter as you like
