Acai Bowls

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of a good Acai Bowl. If you follow me on Instagram (@tanyafosterfilm) you will see that I make a habit of stopping by Nekter Juice Bar to get one of these delicious treats. I asked my dear friend Alicia Wood of The Lush List to figure out the trick to making one at home. Today, I am sharing her recipe with you.

Make one and try it. You’ll be hooked just like me.  xoxo- Tanya

ACAI BOWLS

Surely you’ve had one of these tasty bowls. If not, you need to try one! Acai berries are primarily grown in Brazil’s Amazon rain forest. They are a true superfood packed with antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids. They are said to boost the immune system and increase energy levels. Who doesn’t need that in the am!?!?
INGREDIENTS
1 packet of Acai puree (Sambazon Acai Berry frozen puree packets)                                                                                                                                                                          ½ c frozen pineapple
½ c frozen mango
½ c fresh blueberries
1 banana
½ c coconut water
Suggested Toppings:
Sliced Banana
Sliced Strawberries
Blueberries
Blackberries
Pumpkin Seeds
Granola
INSTRUCTIONS
Prepare all of your toppings.
Run acai packet under warm water for 5 seconds and break into pieces.
Cut open packet and place in a blender or Vitamix.
Add frozen and fresh fruit and pulse to break up a bit.
Add coconut water a bit at a time and blend.
Mixture should be thick not thin or runny.
Spoon into a bowl and top with your favorite fruits, seeds and granola.

For extra protein, I add a scoop of Amazing Greens to the mix and a tad more coconut water. With the heat still upon us, an Acai Bowl is a great way to start the day.
