Blend the Açaí Base: In a high-speed blender, combine the frozen açaí puree, ripe banana, mixed berries, and your choice of coconut water or almond milk. Blend until smooth. If you prefer a sweeter base, add honey or agave nectar and blend again.
Açaí Bowl Consistency: The açaí base should be thick but spoonable. Adjust the liquid to achieve your desired consistency.
Serve with Style: Pour the açaí mixture into a beautiful bowl, as you admire the beach view.
Create Your Masterpiece: Now comes the fun part - topping your açaí bowl. Arrange the fresh strawberries, blueberries, banana slices, granola, shredded coconut, and a sprinkle of chia seeds on top.
