If you are like me, you spend more money than you would like to admit on acai bowls. I am lucky to live near a South Block at home, so my sister or friends and I would make almost weekly trips for the bowls and smoothies. I love the warrior bowl so much, I decided to try to make it myself.

The first attempt turned out horrible, but I kept tweaking and eventually found the perfect balance. This recipe is the perfect way for you to make an acai bowl for less money and get the most Instagrammable photos without leaving the house.

The best thing about this bowl is that it is entirely customizable. I love to top my bowl with Michele's Granola and chia seeds. Hopefully, with this recipe, you can go forth and make your favorite South Block acai bowl for less money at home!
