This is my nordic take on an acai bowl! Instead of the super berry that has taken the world by storm I use our very own Swedish super berry which is simply blueberries and mix it up with cooked beetroot and frozen banana. It has got that thick and luscious texture of an acai bowl, the same colour as an acai bowl and even a similar flavour but simply has ingredients that are more local to me here in the North of Europe.

I definitely have nothing against acai, I love acai bowls too, except I don’t like that the only way I can buy it here is in really expensive little plastic pouches. That’s what sparked the idea of me making this more local take. Also it’s great to celebrate the food that grow in our near environment of course. Especially during this time of the year when fruits and veggies are in abundance!
