Let us introduce you to a satisfying and guilt-free Summer breakfast: the acai bowl. This diet-friendly treat marries the refreshing taste of a fruit smoothie with the crunchy satisfaction of a filling bowl of granola. Thanks to the superfruit acai, this healthy and delicious bowl is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and essential amino and fatty acids that will keep you feeling healthy and strong, both inside and out.
It's easy to whip up your own version of this delicious treat at home. The basic recipe combines acai juice, powder, or smoothie pack (which you can pick up at your local grocery store or order online) with a mixture of your favorite frozen and fresh ingredients. Make sure to look for acai products that are 100 percent pure so you can enjoy the full, rich taste of the fruit. To make your own bowl, blend your acai (we like using the smoothie packs) with a mix of your favorite frozen fruits along with a splash of liquid, like almond milk. You're aiming for a smooth, rich texture — like a healthy version of ice cream. Once you're done, top with your favorite healthy toppings, like granola, fresh fruit, and chia seeds, and enjoy!
