Strawberry Banana Acai Bowls have become a staple in my house. My kids are crazy about these and they are such a great way to pack in nutrition and antioxidants. We enjoy them for breakfast, lunch and as an after school snack.
Florida Strawberries are in season from December through April and I find myself getting a tad sad this time of year because I know it is almost over. Florida Strawberries are so sweet and delicious, and I love that they are local and so easily accessible on the East Coast. The Florida Strawberry Growers Association work with PhDs at the University of Florida dedicated to improving the taste of strawberries. Year after year, they continue to improve the sweetness of the strawberries along with many other traits. No wonder they taste so good!
I am always a tad sad when March comes around because I know the season is coming to an end and we will have to wait until December to enjoy fresh Florida Strawberries. This time of year, strawberries are on sale at my local grocer so I stock up on them because I know I can make Strawberry Banana Acai Bowls and freeze them to use for months to come.
Making the bowls ahead of time is perfect because if I make the base of the bowls ahead of time, my kids can enjoy them any time of year. I make a large batch, divide them into plastic containers, freeze and then we add the fresh toppings when we are ready to eat them! It’s so easy to preserve sweet Florida Strawberries this way!
Speaking of toppings, we love to have fun with our toppings and base our fruits on what is in season! Here is a list of some of our favorites:
- More strawberries! Of course!!
- Bee Pollen
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Cacao Nibs
- Shaved Coconut
- Chia Seeds
- Hemp Seeds
- Sunflower Seeds
The possibilities are endless! We try to keep it healthy but feel free to have some fun with your toppings!
- 1 cup of Florida Strawberries
- 1 frozen banana (freeze for at least 2 hours before blending)
- 1 pack acai puree
- ⅔ cup coconut water (you can add more if it is too thick)
- 1 teaspoon honey
- Additional sliced Florida Strawberries and fresh banana for toppings
- Have fun with additional toppings
- Break up the acai puree and add to blender
- Add all additional ingredients and blend until smooth
- You may add additional coconut water if too thick
- You can serve immediately or add to individual plastic bowls and freeze for future use
- Top with additional Florida Strawberries and fresh bananas and your favorite toppings
Family Foodie Tip: This is such a great idea for a birthday party or school party bar. Make the base ahead of time and set up a Strawberry Banana Acai Bar for the kids to add their own topping! What a fun way to celebrate in a healthy fashion and still let the kids customize their toppings!
