Acai for the Soul

Mornings are not always bright and early for the most of us. Especially with a busy schedule with work or school at hand. Infact, when I made my first homemade acai bowl, it was neither a sunny day nor early. Rather, it was a pale winter afternoon, so this colorful treat was more of a well deserved brunch after a busy week.

This popular breakfast item has taken social media by a storm, and can be quite pricey at local joints. That’s what makes these bowls even more enjoyable when made free of cost at home. The beauty of smoothie/acai bowls is that you personalize it with any fruit meaning plenty of variety in the nutrients this breakfast gives off. The key is a thick creamy smoothie base attained from frozen fruits. Not only is this a breakfast item, but can be enjoyed at any time of day to satisfy that sweettooth free of guilt.
Ingrediants:

  • 1/4 cup mixed berries
  • 1/4 cup acai berries
  • 1 banana
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 cup granola oats
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt

Instructions:

  1. Blend acai berries with greek yogurt. Ensure the fruits are still frozen, this will make your smoothie bowl thicker in consistency than a normal smoothie. Pour into any desired bowl.
  2. Slice remaining mixed berries and fruits, and arrange accordingly ontop of the smoothie. Top with mixed granola oats

Sweet tip: for added sweetness that’s natural, top with shredded coconut or add a drizzle of honey!
