Recipe

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.

Directions

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the acai smoothie pack, 1/2 the banana, and yogurt. Add a touch of water if needed. Lately I have been freezing this mixture for about 30 minutes before eating so it is close to a sorbet consistency, but that isn’t necessary.
  2. Top with remaining banana, coconut, granola, and any other toppings you enjoy. Chia seeds, fresh berries, flax seeds, and nuts would all be great additions.
