Wanted to share one of my current favorite healthy (and easy to make recipes) acai bowls! If you aren’t familiar with acai berries, they are a superfood from Brazil, known for a variety of different of health benefits- and they taste great too.
An acai bowl is basically a really thick smoothie that’s been topped with oatmeal, granola, fruit, seeds or even different nut butters. They are a great breakfast or snack and will leave you feeling full for hours while also satisfying sweet cravings!
Below are some quick steps & ingredient suggestions. ENJOY =)
- BLEND. First blend together two acai smoothie packs, a generous splash of liquid (you can use water, juice or milk) and (optionally) some frozen fruit. I like to add about one cup of frozen berries or a frozen banana.
- POUR. After your acai is thick, frosty and blended, spoon it out into a bowl as your base.
- TOP. Start adding toppings! Pile away- whatever suits your palette. I like to alternate seasonal fruits with fresh granola and chia seeds.
