Acai Bowl

It is a new year and we all are trying to shed some pounds from enjoying sweet treats like Aunt June’s Cream Cheese Cookies. These Acai bowls are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dessert! They are filling, refreshing and healthy!

I tried it at a new Acai Bar that opened up near my house and copied what they did. The only difference is their acai is more frozen like ice cream. If you like your acai frozen you can put the acai, frozen banana, chia seeds and almond milk in your blender and freeze until ready to eat. Otherwise follow the recipe below to enjoy right away.

Acai Bowl

Ingredients

  • about 2 tablespoons of peanut butter (you can use almond butter, soy butter or whatever you prefer)
  • 1/4 of a cup of your favorite granola (I try and buy one that is lower in sugar and on the healthier side. Some can be loaded with junk)
  • 1 packet of frozen unsweetened acai (found in the freezer section at any grocery store)
  • 1/2 of a frozen banana (I keep bananas that are a little too ripe in the freezer in a storage bag peeled and cut in half for smoothies)
  • 1 teaspoon of Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk or any milk you prefer (I use Califia Farms coconut almond milk. There is no sugar and it is healthy and delicious)
  • 1/2 of a banana, sliced
  • Fresh berries for the top of your bowl

Directions

  1. Spread a layer of the peanut butter at the bottom of your bowl.
  2. Sprinkle granola on top of peanut butter (The best part is the peanut butter and granola at the bottom!)
  3. Put the acai, frozen banana, chia seeds and almond milk in your blender.
  4. Blend until combined.
  5. Pour the acai mixture over the granola in your bowl.
  6. Top with sliced banana and fresh berries of your choice.

Enjoy!
