In this cooking at home lab, I made an açai bowl. There was açai powder in it, blackberries, strawberries, a banana, blueberries, chia seeds, and some homemade granola.
I did not get this recipe online. I just used what I had and made it.
I put the frozen fruits in fruits in first which is the strawberries, banana, and blueberries, then I put the things that are not frozen along with the açai powder. I blended it up until I couldn’t hear anymore of the frozen ingredients mixing around. when I opened up the blender, I could smell the berries in it and it smelt really sweet. the colour of it was a purplish black colour and I could see that the chia seeds and granola was placed beautifully on top. the texture of it was creamy and the granola in it gave it a crunch. the last of it was so good. the berries in it was so strong and sweet.
if I were to make this dish again, I would put less frozen fruits in, or more milk, because it was too thick and cold.
a challenge that I had was that there were too many frozen fruits and it wouldn’t blend properly. to overcome this challenge, I put more milk in so it would blend better.
my greatest success in this lab was the final product. it looked really pretty and it taste really good. I could taste everything in there and it was just a burst of flavours in my mouth.
I never made an açai bowl before, this was the first. In this experience, I am most proud of being able to learn something new and being about to overcome my challenges I had.
