Tropical Sunset Smoothie

September 24, 2015 — by Griffin Thall



Fruit smoothies are a sweet and simple way to get your daily intake of healthy awesomeness. Change up your morning breakfast routine with our layered Tropical Sunset Smoothie. It almost looks too good to eat…almost.



Makes 2 servings
1 cup Frozen Strawberries
1 cup Frozen Mango
1 Large Frozen Banana
1 cup Water / Coconut Milk / Almond Milk < Choose whatever liquid you want!

1) Blend 1 frozen banana, 1 cup of frozen mango and 3/4 cup of liquid in a blender. This is the first layer of your smoothie, so it needs to be thick in order for the layers to build properly. Add more frozen mango if you need to thicken the mixture. Pour 1/3 of the mixture into 2 glasses.




2) Add in a 4-6 frozen strawberries and a splash of liquid so the mixture isn’t as thick as the first layer. Blend and pour the mixture into the glasses leaving enough for the last layer.



3) Lastly, add the rest of the frozen strawberries and some more liquid then whirl into a smooth, thin consistency (not as thick as the 2nd layer). Carefully top off your glasses with the remainder of the mixture.


4) Drink in layers for a fun variation on your favorite healthy drink!

How to Make the Best Acai Bowl

May 11, 2015 — by Griffin Thall


After a day of sun, salt and sand, whip up the perfect post-surf snack: a healthy and delicious acai bowl. We let Haleiwa Bowls show us how to make the BEST acai bowl on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii and maybe even the world!

2 C Total of Frozen Blueberries, Strawberries & Bananas (equal parts of each)
Sambazon Pure Acai Smoothie Pack
Splash of Milk (We love coconut or rice milk!)
Your Toppings of Choice:
Granola, Bee Pollen, Honey, Chia Seeds or Diced Fruit. Get creative!

1) Combine the frozen fruit and Sambazon Acai in your blender. You may need to add a splash of milk to get everything moving. Turn your blender on and take breaks in between blending to stir the frozen mixture.

2) Scoop the yumminess into a bowl. Top with the granola first.

3) Then add some fresh fruit, bee pollen and finish off with a drizzle of honey.

4) Grab a spoon and enjoy on your lanai while the ocean breeze keeps you company!
