We had a little extra time this morning, so we used it to make a delicious breakfast bowl!
Yum. Just…yum. Don’t act like you don’t want to just dive into this bowl!
The thing is, smoothie bowls are super easy! It just takes an extra few minutes in the morning to prep one for yourself!
I’ve been using frozen acai packets for my smoothies and bowls because they’re packed with antioxidants (and deliciousness). Acai is a tropical superfood fruit that hails from Brazil. It’s delicious and tart and Jamba Juice has been putting in their smoothies for years. The fruit itself has been touted for intense health benefits like antioxidants, amino acids and omega fatty acids that help slow the aging process by boosting immune and metabolic function and removing destructive free radicals from your body! Yep, I’ll take some of that. PLUS, it’s tasty! The dark purple berries pack more grams of protein than an egg! Add that to its omega 3/6/9 fatty acids and you see that the acai helps improve the look and texture of your hair, skin and nails.
So what is an acai bowl anyway? Basically, it’s a really thick acai smoothie in a bowl with toppings. It kind of looks (and sometimes tastes) like ice cream, but it’s GOOD for you! Here’s our easy recipe for one of my favorites!
- Combine all ingredients in a blender.
- Pout into a bowl and top with your favorite chopped fruits, nuts, chia, etc.
I’m always looking for new topping ideas – What are your favorite toppings for your breakfast bowls?
