Acai smoothie ingredients in blender.
  1. Add: To a blender, add the acai juice, strawberries, and bananas.
  2. Blend: Oh high speed, blend until smooth. Add more juice to thin it out or more strawberries (or banana) to thicken it up.
  3. Pour: Grab a couple of glasses and pour to enjoy right away!

Tips and Variations

This acai berry smoothie is perfect as is, but it can definitely be customized to your liking.

  • Thickness. For a thicker, shake-like consistency, use a frozen banana.
  • Creaminess. For added creaminess and weight, add a scoop of greek yogurt.
  • Fruit. Swap the strawberries for blueberries, raspberries, mango, or really any other fruit you’d like. Just for a difference of flavor from time to time!
  • Powders. Add in protein powder or collagen for extra protein. Keep in mind they come with added flavors so you’ll want to find one that will complement the flavors in the smoothie.
  • Smoothie bowl. Make an extra thick smoothie and pour it into a bowl for a delicious acai smoothie bowl. Then top with various nuts, seeds, and other add-ons for added texture and taste. Enjoy eating it with a spoon.
  • Popsicles: Make a fun variation of homemade popsicles by freezing the smoothie into popsicle molds.

Storing & Freezing

  • Store. This smoothie is best enjoyed fresh and served immediately. It serves two, so that’s just enough not to have any leftovers to store.
  • Freeze. Definitely a freezable smoothie! This is a great option if you need to make it ahead of time and freeze for later. Make some healthy popsicles for the kids, or freeze them in ice cube trays for babies to enjoy. When you are ready to make the smoothie, blend the ice cubes with a bit of juice for a nice thick smoothie!
