Acai Bowls (aka my favorite new treat)

Oh hey remember last week where I talked about that kind of mess of a bowl called an acai bowl? Well apparently I really really liked it because I spent yesterday afternoon trying to recreate my own version at home.

Although these bowls do have a solid ingredient list, they are super easy to make and extremely versatile. They make the perfect “power breakfast” as they are packed with fruity freshness. If you have never heard of acai, it is a tart, slightly sweet berry that is packed with antioxidants.

The acai bowl base is made of a frozen acai “smoothie pack” by Sambazon mixed with almond milk, frozen fruit, and any other “throw-ins” of your choice. Then for the toppings…the fun part! I topped my bowl with berry granola, shredded coconut, blackberries, and kiwi. The options are endless.

Think of these as the even healthier version of fro-yo 🙂
