Looking for a new way to use your Sambazon Açaí Pure Unsweetened Superfruit Packs this winter? Try this Hot Chocolate Açaí + Oats Bowl by Carly of Fit Living Eats! It’s a homey, warm rendition on the classic Açaí bowl we all know and love with a fun, vegan hot chocolate twist. All you’ll need in addition to your typical ingredients are cooking oats of your choice, cacao powder, and some sweeteners like maple syrup and vanilla extract. Are you ready? Let’s go!
In order to stay comfy and cozy, we’re going to start by heating up all ingredients but banana over a medium saucepan. This will allow the multitude of sweet and savory flavors to melt together with the cooking oats. Make sure the oats get to a nice, thick consistency before transferring it over to a blender to mix in the banana, because once the banana is mixed in...you’re done! Simply garnish with toppings of choice, snap a picture, and enjoy.
