At just 260 calories per bowl, this Trader Joe’s Acai Bowl is way cheaper than going to a smoothie shop to get your acai fill. The Brazilian fruit (pronounced uhh-sigh-e) is a supposed super food. Trader Joe’s has taken acai and fruits like strawberry and banana and frozen them, then thrown in a separate package of granola in the box. Acai is not my favorite thing in the world with it’s rich, berry/dark chocolaty flavor, but this is definitely a nutritious meal with lots of fiber and protein. The fact you can just put one of these in your work bag in the morning and have a meal a bit later on without any prep is a really nice part of how they’ve put this bowl together. Keep in mind TJ’s also sells packets of acai puree in the frozen section for about $1 dollar more. ………….

Trader Joe’s Acai
I think if you are convinced of the benefits of acai in general, you will want to eat this regularly. It tastes good, it isn’t crazy sweet, and it’s super satisfying, especially with the added granola. Of course, acai is one of the more expensive fruits going these days because of its super food status, so you can opt for fruits like strawberry or banana without the acai for a lot cheaper. One interesting twist is the new Acerola puree packets at Trader Joe’s, which could soon replace the Trader Joe’s acai bowl as the hot new superfood fruit item! If anyone has great ideas of acai recipes in general or ways to spice up this acai bowl, let me know! People tend to get really creative with breakfast dishes sometimes, so maybe the granola in this acai bowl has sparked some crazy combinations! Here’s a few other options if you can’t make it to TJs….
