I guess I have writer’s block this morning because I can’t think of much to say for this post. The best thing I can think of at the moment is something along the lines of “Acai bowls: they’re totally awesome…amiright?” Anyway, Kirby and I love acai bowls but during the week we don’t always have the time (or the money) to go buy them. I tried making them a couple times and didn’t like the results, but then I finally landed on this version and now I’m addicted. I love it because you can mix it up and add whatever toppings you want that day. Most places we go usually just do granola (which unless it’s gluten-free we can’t eat anymore), banana, and strawberries. It’s nice to be able to make it as fancy (or simple) as you would like, so I encourage you to get creative with it. DSC02896 Ingredients:

serves 2

For the Acai

1 Cup frozen strawberries

1 Cup frozen cherries

1/2 Cup almond milk (or more depending on how thick you like it)

1 1/2 Tablespoons Acai Powder (Find at any healthy food store)

For the toppings:

Like I said you can do anything! Here are some that we like…

Chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts)

shredded coconut

raw organic honey

fruit (peaches, bananas, kiwi, etc.)

berries

chia seeds

granola

peanut butter or almond butter (sounds strange but it’s delicious!)

Directions

In a high-powered blender, add frozen berries, almond milk, and acai powder. Blend until smooth and add small amounts of almond milk until it reaches desired consistency.

Place mixture in bowl and add toppings. You’re done!

DSC02906 DSC02908 I hope you guys enjoy this! You should definitely try making it sometime soon :) Now I’m off to the dog park/yoga/library. I hope you have an awesome day!

    These look so tasty–and pretty! I always get stuck in a smoothie rut for breakfast every single morning and while I love them, sometimes you just have to change things up a bit. I’ll just have to see if I can locate some acai powder in SW Virginia!

      Thanks Kelsey! You should definitely try them-I usually have green smoothies for breakfast, but this is such a nice way to mix it up! Good luck in finding the acai…I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to find it! If not you can always order online :)
