Icecream bowls have taken the internet by surprise, we see them on Instagram and in YouTube recipes everywhere. If you are in a weight loss program, we recommend some important points when making your own smoothies and açaí bowls at home.
1. First of all, make the açaí bowls yourself
It is easier than you think and you can control what ingredients you will use and what is the right amount. Likewise, our 100% organic and sugar-free Casa do açaí pulps will be your best allies in your diet, since a package does not exceed 70kcal. You find them available in several cities in Spain, in our virtual store and in our physical store in Barcelona, Catalonia (Carrer de Entença, 144).
2. Select a suitable size for your bowl
Most of the recipes you will find on the Internet make a massive bowl.
“Acai bowls can be a great whole food choice for a meal or snack, but the typical serving size exceeds the recommended 1-cup serving for most fruits, especially because it’s mainly mixed, contributing too much sugar to the body at the same time, “says Beth Warren, RDN, founder of Beth Warren Nutrition and author of Living a Real Life with Real Food.
3. Curb companions and sweeteners.
Treats like honey, granola, walnuts, and coconut are delicious, but they are also high in calories. That is why it is recommended to limit yourself to one or two ingredients and control how much you add of each.
4. Don’t forget about protein and green ingredients.
Remember that the body also needs to satisfy its protein ration. This is why you can add a tablespoon of 100% homemade peanut butter as a topping, without added sugars. It is also recommended to liquefy spinach and kale with the açaí.
Done in the right way, the açaí bowl is a complete and super nutritious meal. We just have to be careful with the portions and the accompanying ingredients 😋
