Even though the acai bowl originated in Brazil and the purple superfood natively grown there, many of the acai obsessed first discovered acai here in Hawaii. In the land of vibrant tropical fruits acai fits right in, naturally complimenting the warm tones and tastes of sweet pineapple, sunrise papayas, and tart mangos. Where palm trees sway there are sure to be a few coconuts ready to harvest. For this weeks #TamborRecipe we took... More
Who doesn't love the smell of fresh baked granola. Every time we make a batch, a thought of "why don't we make this more often?!" crosses our mind. It's so simple and oh so good! We love textures in our granola. Maybe it's because we love the contrast to a smooth blended acai bowl :) Crunchy! Chewy! We're all about it, and this Crunchy Chunky Coconut Blueberry Granola is that and so much more. Can't... More

What goes on top of your acai bowl is equally important as what you put in it. You can always tell when granola is homemade. There's this fulness in the flavors and it becomes more of a compliment to the acai than just an extra acai bowl topping. For this granola recipe we're adding our twist on the Almond Joy candy bar. We admit, there are times we crave something bad; but candy bars aren't... More

We're fans of chia seeds not only for their nutritional value, but for how easy they are to incorporate into your meal. Chia seeds expand and gel-up, similar to a tapioca consistency when liquid is added to them, making them the perfect ingredient for... More
Being based in Hawaii, we don't see much snow [ besides the occasional exception of Mauna Kea on the Big Island ]. Since the weather in the Tropics doesn't reflect much change during seasons here, we're finding other delicious ways to get in the Holiday spirit. Today we've put together this simple recipe, 5 Ingredient Raw Coconut Snowballs. If you're like us, shredded coconut and coconut chips are a slight addiction and we love adding... More
Here in Hawaii the extent of our seasonal changes consist of the waves being big or small. Though it is nice to play into all the Holiday and Winter traditions that those father from the equator are experiencing. There's just something about the smell of fresh baked goods filling every room in the house that instils a sense of nostalgia for all the happy memories this time of year brings. Like that evening session we... More

Today's recipe, we're working with two flavors very familiar to the Tropics; Mango and Coconut. This blend combines those flavors with our pure Tambor Açaí and a few other fresh ingredients for a delicious tropical açaí mango smoothie. So whether... More
If there's one thing that can make or break a good açaí bowl, it's the granola. When you're making a bowl at home, why not have some fresh homemade granola to top it off? If you've ever tried to bake granola yourself, you probably know by now that it's pretty hard to mess it up.
