Recipe: Acai Smoothie Bowl


This breakfast smoothie bowl comes together in minutes, tastes delicious and packs a superfood punch. I consider a great treat breakfast on a hot day, as it tastes like ice cream! Acai (ah-sigh-EE) berry is a grapelike fruit harvested from acai palm trees, which are native to the rainforests of South America. Like all other berries, acai berries are high in antioxidants. Antioxidants help prevent the damaging effects of oxidation on cells throughout your body, which boosts your immunity.

1 frozen packet of acai berry puree (get the unsweetened packs)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 frozen banana
1 cup almond milk or water
Toppings: berries, shredded coconut, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, chopped almonds, buckwheat groats, gluten-free oats

In a blender or food processor, blend together the acai, banana and almond milk until the texture of soft serve ice cream. Top with any toppings you choose!
