I Finally Tried Making An Acai Bowl At Home And It Was Honestly A Disaster — Here's What NOT To Do

Playa bowls who??

So I am in love with açaí bowls. They are amazing in my opinion. I am not into breakfast foods at all, BUT ACAI BOWLS ON THE OTHER HAND...

Acai bowls are obviously a little pricy to continue to purchase all of the time. And I always like to try and put my own spin on things when I can. So I decided to research how to make my own!

They sell frozen packs of acai at the grocery store.

It was fairly inexpensive and all I had to do was throw the package in the blender with half of a banana, and a splash of the milk of my choice and I was good to go!

Ok! It wasn't too bad, pretty straightforward — until I started blending.

I added WAY too much milk. When I started to blend, it was looking more like a smoothie than anything.

Plus, the instructions on the back of the package called to use 2 at once, but I didn't want to make too much so I started out with only one.

So, to cope with my acai smoothie, I tried to add some ice in my blender to try and thicken it up.

I keep my freezer on the coldest setting so my ice is naturally pretty solid which meant it took my blender a while to chop up the ice...which meant more time for any of the frozen acai to melt...

So, once the ice was successfully blended, it was pretty liquidy anyway.

I threw my bowl in the freezer for about 10 minutes to try and salvage it but it really didn't do much.

I topped it off with granola, strawberries, bananas, and a touch of Nutella (because I have such a sweet tooth!). This part was really good!

Though the acai part was a little disappointing, the actual bowl overall was tasty — the flavor was there. I will definitely try again!!

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
