Hi guys! Acai Bowls and Smoothie Bowls are all the rage at the moment in cafes all over the globe and here at Raw Blend we often get asked what’s the Best Blender to make Acai Bowls and Smoothie Bowls for business use. For small scale acai bowls we recommend Vitamix Vita-Prep 3 and for large scale acai bowls we recommend the Hallde VCB-32.
Professional chefs and culinary schools around the world trust the Vita-Prep 3® for its exceptional power, versatility and performance. From chopping delicate ingredients to blending thick frozen mixtures, the Vita-Prep 3 prepares each dish to perfection. The Vita Prep 3 offers extreme power (3HP) and a quality blade design and this is why it’s the best Best Blender to make Acai Bowls and Smoothie Bowls.
While it is possible to make Acai/Smoothie Bowls in other Vitamix models (like The Quiet One) it’s not recommended. When using The Quiet One for Acai Bowls you are required to stop the unit and mix the ingredients with a spoon or spatula before continuing to blend, this process can be frustrating in a commercial environment. Vita Prep 3 comes with a tamper processing tool which enables you to mix the ingredients whilst blending, which makes life easy and is another reason why it’s the Best Blender to make Acai Bowls and Smoothie Bowls.
Tip: You can purchase a 0.9L or 1.4L Vitamix Container for even easier Acai and Smoothie Bowl blending. The smaller/shorter Vitamix Containers are easier when making smaller quantities and easier to scoop the ingredients out of.
If you are making 20 or more acai bowls a day in your commercial establishment you are going to want to invest in a Hallde VCB-32. Hallde is a Swedish company that manufacture high quality food preparation equipment. Hallde parts will wear better then Vitamix and you can blend more quantity per blend. For example, you can easily blend 4 or more acai bricks per blend, which is perfect for making multiple or bulk bowls to keep up the busy demand in a commercial establishment.
‘Amazonia’ manufactures of the original Frozen Acai Smoothie Packs recommend to their customers to use Vitamix and the Vita Prep 3 nor Hallde for the best consistency and tasting Acai Bowls. If you haven’t tried some other their amazing products make sure you do! It’s super healthy and delicious too!
If you own a Vitamix For Home Blender don’t fear, you can still easily make Acai and Smoothie Bowls at home however, be sure to use small quantities, use your tamper effectively and make sure it’s on high speed.
So remember the Vita-Prep 3 by Vitamix and the Hallde VCB-32 are the Best Blenders to make Acai Bowls and Smoothie Bowls in a commercial environment.
