Tess Sinatro's Homemade Açaí Bowl Recipe

You may know who Tess Sinatro, or Lamb_chop97, is from her delicious array of online video recipes on TikTok. With a community of loyal followers, Tess shows you the step-by-step instructions for making anything from dinner to dessert. 

Creating a Bowl from Scratch 

Tess created a delicious Açaí bowl and toppings, all from scratch. From granola topping and homemade peanut butter, to the delicious Açaí base. 

Creating your own toppings is a little extra work to get the desired result, but the extra love definitely pays off in the end.
