Acai bowls are kind of all-the-rage right now. Acai is emerging as an incredible superfood - from Brazil - and breakfast staple. It's a food crazy I'm personally excited about because it's a healthy one (as opposed to donuts and cupcakes).
I'm also on snapchat as puremamas - and there I talk about what I'm eating and fun healthy plant-based food tips. Last week was kale - how to best store it with lemon juice, etc.
The best part of these bowls are the toppings. I love to add whatever is in season and most fresh at the time. But you can add:
I recommend berries right now. They are so sweet and perfect.
Acai Bowl Base Recipe
yields 1 large bowl or 2 smaller ones
2 frozen really ripe large bananas
1/2 cup any other frozen fruit
1/2 cup water or almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup acai powder + Tbsp more
granola of choice
coconut shreds, etc.
+ In a high speed blender, add frozen bananas, fruit and liquid of choice. Blend until bananas are totally smooth.
+ Add vanilla and acai powder. Blend again. You'll have to use a spatula to scrape the sides a few times. It will be a thick mixture.
+ Pour acai mixture into a large bowl. Sprinkle with toppings/garnish of choice. I used Purely Elizabeth's gluten-free granola.
+ It's nice to add a little protein to this as well like hemp seeds or a even a protein powder can be added for added calories and nutrition.
Enjoy this and I hope it becomes a staple for your family as well.
