Lately my favorite weekend breakfast has been a refreshing Acai Energy Bowl from my neighborhood coffee shop. This is even with the embarrassment of always saying a-kai instead ah-sah-eee no matter how many times I say it in my head first. Ugh.
So let’s talk about this bowl. The acai is cool and refreshing, almost like a sorbet. Then its topped with bananas, shredded coconut, and a touch of granola or high fiber cereal. Delish and perfect for hot mornings. On to the acai berry. Packed with antixodants, fiber, amino acids, and essential fatty acids acai is a popular superfood made from a palm tree found in Brazil. To me it tastes like a really rich blueberry or raspberry. Normally it is sold as a powder (great to add in smoothies or yogurt) or in frozen smoothie packets and can be found in most natural food stores or bought online.
